This is a small place, with hot dogs and chili dogs. You can call it in, eat at the small restaurant, or drive thru. Good fries, too. Small menu, but good.

We used to have several places to get a good Coney Dog in Peoria, but sadly no more. Until we found The Other Dawg, good meat sauce and steamed buns. Very Good. The tamales are good also.

If you like hot dogs, this is the place. Small inside, but it also has a drive-thru window. I had a chili dog - it was very good. My kids enjoyed the visit.

I'm a Chicago kid. I know a good Dawg when I come across one! These are the deal with all the right fixings and on a poppy seed bun like they should be. Mr. G's used to be the place in Peoria to get a Chicago hot dog fix, but not so much now that they've changed ownership. Glad I... More

The food is good, but the place is a tad small. I plan on going again sometime.

This little gem is all you need to make your Saturday afternoon complete! My husband and I went for Chicago dogs a couple weeks ago, and they were delicious. The service is friendly and fast, and the restaurant is bright, clean and has a cute diner-style decor. Check out the salt and pepper shaker collection by the counter...kitschy and fun!... More

The Other Dawg is a tiny tucked-away shop that offers a variety of old-fashioned hot dogs, chili dogs, and delicious tamales. The owner and staff are very friendly and make you feel like you have just stopped in to visit your friendly neighbor. Their products include beef, steak, pork, and chicken products. The prices are very reasonable. The chili topping... More
