Parkersburg Edition: Der Dog Haus Pub & Grill
Parkersburg has a ton of great restaurants that I've only begun exploring recently. A friend suggested Der Dog Haus out of sentimental memory, so RL and I stopped by one night to check it out.
Der Dog Haus has a pretty simple menu with hot dogs, sandwiches, salads and daily specials, like spaghetti, cream chicken, and tacos. It's standard, basic American fare - but it's clear this is a common dinner spot for locals.
The building has a bunch of different smaller dining spaces with sports memorabilia and other odds and ends that make up the decorations. Our waitress, a young girl, quickly took our orders, and, before I knew it, the food was at our table.
I ordered a hot dog with sauce, slaw, mustard and onions with a side of the broccoli slaw. RL got a club sandwich. RL said his food was good, and my hot dog was pretty tasty, as well. The English bun always scores extra points in my book, and the slaw was fresh, which was nice. And the broccoli slaw on the side was tasty. I haven't had it with walnuts before, so that was new.
Overall, there's nothing especially unique about this restaurant, but it is simple with good food. I wish I had saved room for dessert. That will have to wait for next time.
