RESTAURANT REVIEW - The Dog House, Tulsa, OK
The Dog House
1101 S. Detroit, Tulsa, OK
My friend Jeffrey works at this small, quirky hot dog shop in downtown Tulsa. While he isn't vegan/vegetarian himself, he is very proactive about making sure that the restaurant has vegan options. Separate skillet for sautéing vegan items only - no meat. They have falafel and portobello mushrooms as a vegan option, and they can be put in the poppy seed bun with any of the vast array of vegan toppings, or the falafel can be served by itself or as a slider. No meat ever touches the fryer, so vegans can enjoy the french fries with a clear conscience. As Jeffrey says "You can literally come in every day of the week and never eat the same thing twice".
I absolutely love the falafel dog here - I think they make the falafel themselves, and it's actually "hot dog" shaped. I always get Sriracha and peanut butter on mine, but I've played around with various other toppings as well.
This dog starts with falafel and adds grilled onions, avocado, cucumber, mushrooms, peanut butter, and Sriracha.

There's currently only a couple of small tables and several old-fashioned school desks inside, though customers can stand at two bar-height long tables if they like. There's also two or three picnic tables out back, which are lovely places to eat when the weather's nice.
