Cititour Review:
Craving a hot dog? You might want to make a dash for Willie's Dawgs in Park Slope, Brooklyn. The grilled beef dogs are plump and juicy, and have a real good snap to them. My favorite is the "Carlos," slathered with cheddar, salsa and chunks of jalapeno peppers on a homemade challah roll. It's huge, hot and hits the spot every time, although it's so packed that it can be a bit hard to handle.

But have no fear, there are plenty of other options, including the "Willie" topped with cheddar and bacon, and the "Grady" made with grilled peppers and carmelized onions. There's even a "Phoney Baloney" hot dog, which it turns out, is actually a grilled carrot. Or, you can create your own dog by picking from a large assortment of sides. You'll also be impressed with the large number of gourmet mustards on hand; ranging from hearty grains to hot and spicy. Add on a side of hand-cut fries and onion rings, and wash it all down with a Yoo-Hoo. Now, that's good eatin'. It's also a great, inexpensive place for the kids.

Willie's Dawgs also has a heart. Pictures lining the walls show real dogs up for adoption, some of which have already found homes. Others are still looking. During our visit, Precious was still up for adoption. She resembles a white husky, and If I didn't already own a dog, I probably would've taken this one home.

So, aside from picking up a meal, you might just find a new best friend!
