Great new sandwich! The meatballs are to die for. I will be back! Fast and friendly service makes this a great stop.

Dr Dawg has brought the Chicago favorites, hot dog, Italian beef, polish sausage to Milwaukee along with a knock-out hamburger. I'm a regular and have tried them all. Their fries are as good as they get and their best kept secret is their Cole Slaw.

I love Chicago style hot dogs and Dr Dawg knows how to do them well! There are also burgers and other sandwiches on their menu, but the Chicago style dogs are what I go for. Food is made to order, so it is hot every time. Staff are friendly and helpful. Good food and casual atmosphere are what keep me... More

Sandwiches and hot dogs dressed to order. 6 or 7 visits in the last 5 years. Food and beverages quickly dispensed. Quality is OK.

I went on my birthday and used a coupon. The staff was wonderful as was the food. I usually have a Chicago dog and it's very authentic. I've had other things in the past, which are equally as good,

I frequently ate hot dogs there when Dave was in manitowoc. Only dogs I will now eat is at his Glendale location. We stop by every time we drive to Milwaukee for Kobi Chicago dogs. I get gout with regular dogs (nitrates), but never with Kobe dogs.

If you like hot DAWGS, this place has them! The Chicago Dawg is magnificient. The Italian Dawg is magnificient. The kielbasa is magnificient! I'd be willing to bet the burgers are pretty good, as well, but I never got to them!
