This place is in a church basement in downtown Pittsburgh. It's a friendly hole-in-the-wall and they offer a vegan hot dog.

I got the vegan dot with some vegan chili added to it ($3.75 total). I'm not a huge fan of hot dogs, but this turned out to be a simple, quick and cheap meal.

My only gripes: I wish the chili had been spicier and fresher (some diced green chilis and tomatoes would have helped); and I wish they had a whole wheat bun instead of white flour. Also, while the Smart Dogs they used are tasty, I think vegan sausages (such as those made by Tofurkey or Field Roast) are far more flavorful.

Oh, and if they had some vegan desserts (how about cookies? or a soy ice cream?) I would have given them an extra star.
