This rollicking dive bar knows all too well what buzzed imbibers crave—indulgent junk food—and supplies it in ample and satisfying measure. Focusing on quality over quantity, Happy Dog’s menu presents just one frank option: classic all-beef, locally made by Cleveland purveyor Blue Ribbon Meats. The sky’s the limit when it comes to topping those dogs, though: choose from six categories (Meat, Cheese, Savory, Pickled, Fresh and Sauce) and load your link to abandon. Bourbon pork ’n’ beans, vodka sauerkraut, Brazilian chimichurri and sunnyside-up eggs are all standout options, and sides of tater tots and their dipping sauces are darn good, too.
