When I was a kid and saw a hot dog cart in the summertime, I would always beg my mom and dad to buy me a hot dog. Most of the time, they would acquiesce, and I would end up biting into the hot dog happily. However, my parents would draw the line at buying me a second hot dog.
Hounds Hot Dogs & Gyros in Parma Heights, Ohio is a small place that brings back that summertime feeling of grabbing a hot dog from a street cart vendor. Only it's even better because Hounds is open year-round, and you can always find it at its permanent location in the parking lot of a strip mall.
After a long day of staring at the blank pages of my notebook and trying but failing to get inspired, I was hungry and decided to get a chili dog from Hounds. I was tempted to order the chili cheese dog instead. But I had already consumed a latte that had not been made with plant-based milk that morning, so my lactose-intolerant body had suffered enough for the day.
Because I was so hungry, I devoured the chili dog before I could take a picture of it, hence the stock photo of a chili dog above.
The chili dog was simple and delicious. Hounds uses all-beef hot dogs, and my hot dog was plump and juicy. The chili on top of it was also tasty, and the sandwich satisfied my hunger (yes, I consider hot dogs to be sandwiches).
In addition to hot dogs and chili dogs, Hounds sells fries, gyros, sausage, and burgers.
