Don’s Dogs (formerly located on the corner of Buchanan Blvd./Chapel Hill St.) was demolished to make way for the Emily Krzyzewski Center. Durham hot dog enthusiasts, I think, took this loss kind of badly. The dogs were awesome and scoring a meal there with only some change in your pocket felt pretty good. Happy days are here again, however, and hotdogs are now being served fresh in that same Durham neighborhood. This Sabrett’s stand called Top Dog parks on Chapel Hill St., corner of Gattis St., one block west of Buchanan Blvd.
At Top Dog, $2 buys a meal: hotdog or sausage, a bag of chips and a soda. A single dog is $1. I’ve tried the dog and the sausage and think the hotdog is going to be my usual. Getting chili (for no extra charge) on top is recommended. Top Dog is open for business M-F (sometimes Sat.) for lunch and dinner, but closes up earlier at 4:30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
