Quality food at fair prices. A varied menu, specializing in hot dogs, franks, and sausages. Tons of variety to order from the menu or build your own.

Delicious hot dogs. We had the Green Monster and the Picnic, both were great albeit messy (worth the struggle!). Small but varied beer selection. Dogs okay at the outside table, they even brought water for the dogs. Would recommend and will be back!

It impressive the many options you are afforded to jazz up a hot dog. The food is fresh and great tasting, the staff are efficient and friendly. Free parking is available or if you wish the Slaw Dog does offer delivery service.

Why there are so many hot dog places in Pasadena these days is a bit of a mystery to me, and why I've tried more than one surprises me, too. But I have, and this is the one that keeps drawing me back. And it's not just to see what creative combinations the owners have come up with -- I... More

I think I could eat here every day. The variety is almost endless, especially since you can create your own hot dog in addition to the list of unusual selections on the menu. Even vegetarians can find some good choices here. The menu also includes burgers, salads, and sides, but the dog rules here. And everything I've had is really... More

The owner and staff are very friendly. Take your time to read the menu before going because there is A LOT to choose from and you'll want to try everything. So far I've tasted the L.A. Street Dog, The Green Monster, The O.G. Thai Slaw Dog, and a few that I put together myself (did I mention I can't get... More

When it comes to dogs, this is the PLACE! They have the usual suspects but then they have their unique dogs, Thai Dog, Mac and Cheese Dog, Green Monster Slaw Dog, all yummy. But being a Chicagoan, my fav is the Chicago Dog! The best Chgo dog in the Southland.A confession, I have one at least once a month....

The service was excellent. The owner and the service were very welcoming. The hot dogs were good and the onion rings were great.

Slaw Dog in Pasadena offers a great way to combine different hot dog/sausage meat types with toppings you may never have considered. They always offer 4-6 new items not on menu, last night we all ordered the Cuban Dog along with an order of truffle fries, and it was great. They are very good about customizing your dog, so go...

I stopped in at The Slaw Dogs in Pasadena on the suggestion of a friend as he raved about their dogs. I think they were probably a little bit above average, but nothing to really shout about. They are good, but not fabulous. I tried the chili dog (#1 The Traditional). I could swear I have tasted that chili somewhere... More
