Restaurant Haute Dogs and Fries opened Friday in North Old Town, bringing all kinds of downtown and uptown dogs to Alexandria.
It serves all-beef franks as well as sausages and brats from Loudoun County's Fields of Athenry and Lothar's Gourmet Sausages.
The restaurant, at 610 Montgomery St., serves more typical dogs with relish, mayo and mustard but also menu items such as The Bombshell, which comes covered in carmelized onions, mango, pineapple and jalapenos.
Customers are also welcome to select from 18 toppings to create their own dog.
The restaurant also serves lobster rolls, fish and chips, nachos and more.
Staff hopes to begin beer sales in the next two weeks or so.
If you happen to have room for dessert, try the Eskimo Dog, which is a brown sugar cinnamon toasted bun with ice cream, chocolate and caramel.
The store also has a location in Purcellville.
