For some inexplicable reason, I’ve never visited a Dogg Haus location until today. Well, I’ve learned my lesson.

On just their third day of business, I popped into to the new shop at 755 N. Water St., and ordered an Italian Beef for $5.59. It was delicious.

Dipped with cheese and mild peppers, it was a bit sloppy, but not unwieldy. I devoured it in mere minutes.

I wouldn’t necessarily say I’m an Italian Beef connoisseur, but I know what I like. And I loved this one. The new Dogg Haus is just a few steps from my office, and I’ll be back very soon.
