The Dog House in La Canada?

Just noticed that there is a new (?) hot dog shack on Foothill blvd. in La Canada just east of Ocean View. Has anyone been?

I say it's new because they have a sign outside that says, "Grand Opening".

  1. Stopped here for lunch today to answer my one post. This place seems very promising. sabrett dogs, thin natural casing, really good meaty chilly, and soft, properly steamed buns.

    New article about this new establishment...

      do you have the exact address on this one?

      anything else about the menu? did you happen to snag a takeout menu.

      sabrett's sounds good, and the fact that he's actually trying to reference the Wiener Factory is also good. if it's even half as good as WF, then it's worth a try.

      also, any clue as to the hours of operation?

      1. re: kevin

        2238 Foothill Blvd. Hours are 11-7 M-F, 11-6 Sat., 11-5 Sun.

          I had the tomato, onion and dill relish with brown mustard - Chicago Doghouse was delicious. I love this place.

            I was there last weekend and was very satisfied.
            see this post

            I like the owner and his wife very much and I am sure they will persevere in establishing a great hot dog stand. All in time I am sure.

        2. Just got back from a lunch jaunt to the Dog House. Had a chance to meet and chat w/the owner (Tal) and things are looking very efficient. It is in a great location (just off the 210, up Ocean View and a quick right to the corner stand). Convenient for us here at JPL, and for others in Glendale and Pasadena.

          Had the saurkraut dogs (2 of them) and another of my buddies had the red cabbage dog. I think one dog for me would have been enuf, but my eyes were bigger than my stomach today. The sabrett dogs had great flavor and the toppings were fresh. They also had chili cheese dogs, coleslaw dogs, veggie dogs or Polish sausage, and even turkey dogs.

          Parking is right below on Young, so if you're in the area give it a try. I thought it fit the bill perfectly. We'll be back.

            I've ben here a few times. Sabrett hot dogs are long, thin and mild. On one occasion hot dogs were undercooked and not hot. For my money the $2.95 charged here for a plain hot dog is not a great deal. THe costco steamed Hebrew National dog with a drink for $1.50 is far superior. I think the Hebrew National dog is at least as good as Sabrett and is much larger.

            The french fries here are very good, however. Not greasy and good flavor.

              $1.50 Costco special may be a thing of the past in the very near future from some CH's are saying. Switching to a "Kirkland" dog.....maybe made by Hebrew National or Sinai?

              Costco Hebrew National is a 4:1 (4 dogs to a pound=1/4 pound) Sabrett's they serve are probably 8:1 (8 dogs to a pound= 1/8 pound).

          2. Back when I was a kid, there used to be a place called the Dog House in Glendale, maybe on Central near Harvard. I think they mowed it down when they started to build the Galleria.
            I wonder if they're 'related'.....
