The menu changes everyday. Always with a wonderful soup. Every seafood lovers delight is the lobster bisque. You must try this place which is one of the few Ann Arbor landmarks left standing (or rolling)!!

We've lived and worked in Ann Arbor for many years, but this was our first visit to Le Dog. For some reason, I expected a carry out stand that looks like a hot dog stand and is called Le Dog to serve hot dogs. I expected a large variety of hot dogs such as Chicago dogs, Polish dogs, etc. I... More

My favorite place in Ann Arbor for soup. Be careful, the location on East Liberty has weird hours. Only open weekdays from 11:30am-2:30pm I believe. Also, arrive early. Le Dog starts out with around 10 soups each day and as 2:30 approaches usually only has a few left. While everyone loves the Lobster Bisque (only available on Thurs & Fri... More

They have delicious lobster bisque soup. Nice pieces of lobster and a delicious roll. It is only served on Thursday and Fridays.

What a gem this place is. Great lunch items! Its no wonder people line up to eat here. The service is pleasant and the food is outstanding. If I worked downtown I'd have lunch here often. Parking prohibits me from just dropping in when I am in a hurry.

Nothing beats the lobster bisque here--don't let the appearance of this food booth fool you! Le Dog has been an Ann Arbor institution for decades, and there is good reason. The locals line up here for lunch every day--it's a wonderful place for a quick gourmet bite to eat.

I've been lucky enough to live next door to this place for the past few months and love getting the soup to eat at home. Lobster bisque is fantastic (Thurs & Fri only), as is the Alsatian cabbage soup and chili. You can add in a pretzel roll or delicious pogacsa for $1 more, a real treat!

For a quick excellent s soup lunch no place is better. The best in four counties. Go on Friday for a real treat and if Jambalaya is offered get it.

LeDog is a strictly carryout eatery featuring hotdogs (which I have never tried) and a rotating selection of soups which I have been addicted to for years. Stews and other occasionally make it on to the menu. The cheesy chicken tortilla soup is fabulous, and their Italian wedding soup is not to be missed. There is generally a vegan option... More

When working on campus, I try to eat here regularly and I always get soup (have never had a dog). My favorite is the cheesy chicken tortilla soup - it's wonderful. If you want to eat outside, carry your soup over to the nearby Liberty Plaza (some tables - you might have to share the space with some street people)... More
