Mr. Genes Dog House embodies everything a hot dog stand should, so it’s no wonder Yelpers love this local Cumminsville spot!

Some may argue that the best way to enjoy a hot dog is from a food cart. If this sounds like you, check out 3rd and Walnut Hot Dogs. The cart is parked right where you’d expect, at the corner of 3rd and Walnut, before every home Reds game. Hot dogs and baseball? Not a bad way to enjoy a summer day in the Queen City.
It makes sense that plenty of Yelpers describe this Covington spot as “charming.” Piper’s Cafe is known for plenty of things, including its ice cream, breakfast menu, and of course: hot dogs. The local biz puts its own spin on classic chili dogs with Piper’s Goetta Guiness Chilli and pretzel buns. Is your mouth watering yet?
OTR and Blue Ash
Senate offers a gourmet take on a classic food. There’s nothing ordinary about the hot dogs on the menu of this OTR and Blue Ash biz. What do guacamole, arugula, goat cheese and donut pieces have in common? They’ve all been toppings on Senate hot dogs. That’s right, these dogs are one-of-a-kind culinary creations.
