Near Vandy, just off West End behind the Apple Market is Cori's Doghouse. It's locally owned, even though it has the feel and look of a franchise. All-beef dogs, something like 35 toppings, and the sealer of the deal - a buttered and grilled piece of bread about 2" thick - make this the best dog in Nashville by far. The fries are hand cut and the onion rings are dipped in fresh batter. If the weather is nice, they open up the screened windows. It doesn't get better than this, whether you're in the mood for an exotic dog, or you're a mustard and ketchup guy like me, this is the joint.
