Dale's Hot Dog House

October 11, 2008 - Dale's Hot Dog House serves up gourmet dogs in Blairsville, Georgia

Dale's Hot Dog House is serving up gourmet Vienna Beef hot dogs, bratwurst, sausages, homemade spaghetti and chili, crispy chicken strips, delicious onion rings, fries, tater tots, and lots of fun. The new restaurant is family orientated with friendly faces ready to serve up good, old fashioned hot dogs and all the trimmings.

Owner Dale Spivey says his first love is the restaurant business. "I worked in my uncle's restaurant for close to five years during my teenage years. After three years in the Army, thirty years working for Bell South, and five years in the mortgage business I decided to give it a try and open a restaurant in Blairsville,Georgia."

Why hot dogs? Dale explains, "I wanted something unique and affordable for families to enjoy. At Dale's Hot Dog House we have a game room and two big screen TVs. We're sports orientated and stay open late on Wednesday night for the church crowd. We do birthday parties and other family get-togethers besides taking care of our regular customers."

Any child, three and under, can eat free at Dale's Hot Dog House with the purchase of an adult combo meal (kid's meal includes an all beef hot dog and fries). Combo meals include a hot dog, fountain drink, and a choice of French fries, onion rings, or tater tots. (All children under seven get special deals.) Menu choices include chili dogs, slaw dogs, cheese dogs, and foot-long dogs. There are specialty dogs with all the toppings.
