I tried the Dog Haus in Pasadena yesterday. It was quite good. They've got a big menu with plenty of reasons to come back. I got the "make your own" 1/4 lb "stray dog" and visited the counter of free toppings.
I opted for fries instead of tater tots. Yes, they have tater tots! Great for kids. I'll get that next time. Even though I've had better dogs before, I really enjoyed this. I'm already planning to return.
