Eat Lafayette – Hot Dawg Stop

As far as fast food goes, hot dogs aren’t a typical option.  At least, that’s how it used to be.

Hot Dawg Stop made its debut in Youngsville last year and completely changed the game for fast food.  The concept of made-to-order hot dogs was certainly new to Youngsville residents, but according to the amount of business Hot Dawg Stop receives each day, it’s the best idea since sliced bread.

“I like to say that we recreated the hot dog,” says restaurant owner Bryan Aucoin.  Hot Dawg Stop offers so many different ways to customize your hot dogs, some of which you never would have previously considered.  Sure, you can order a traditional dog with ketchup and mustard or chili and cheese, but from what I understand, you don’t go to Hot Dawg Stop for a traditional dog.  Why not instead try a hot dog topped with crawfish boudin, red beans and rice, fried pickles, queso and salsa, or pulled pork and baked beans?  Talk about recreating the hot dog!

If you’re not feeling quite so daring, there are still plenty of ways to customize your hot dog and create your very own “specialty dog”.  And there’s no need to guess what exactly you’re eating when you go to Hot Dawg Stop.  All hot dogs are made with 100% Angus beef or turkey.  The chili, chips, and fries are made in house, and the buns are shipped a short distance from Jeanerette.  Everything is fresh and local so you can enjoy delicious dogs without having to wonder how your food got here.  In addition to hot dogs, customers are also offered other menu items such as chili by the bowl, loaded fries, wraps, and milkshakes.

Hot Dawg Stop has become so popular that its team has decided to open a new restaurant in Lafayette, so even more Acadiana residents will be able to experience this new fast food craze!  And they don’t plan on stopping there. Restaurant CEO Brittani Aucoin, daughter of Bryan Aucoin, has big plans for the franchise and is aiming for a total of five Hot Dawg Stop locations within the next few years.  Is a fast food hot dog chain the next best thing?  Only time will tell, but you don’t have to wait to see for yourself just how Hot Dawg Stop’s hot dogs are!
