  • What makes our dogs Top Dawg

    Flippin' gnarly ingredients

    Winning weiners

    We only use the best. Our all natural, all beef, made in Swedesboro, NJ dogs won over a tough NYT taste test panel with its "beefy taste, a texture that’s soft but not mealy, a noticeable juiciness and a thread of warm spice flavor." Making the number one spot in the Times' best-of list is rad. We dig it for its smoky, herby, garlic-y spiciness.

    Famous buns

    No messing with posers. Just like our dogs, our buns are by the best. Made in Chambersburg, PA., Martin's Potato Rolls contains NO High Fructose Corn Syrup, NO Artificial Dyes, NO Azodicarbonamide (ADA), NO Trans Fats, and is NON-gmo.

    We max out on house-made

    • Honey mustard: made with local Cape May honey (Busy Bee)
    • Beer mustard: seasonal rotating mustard, made with local breweries beers
    • Spicy mustard: made from scratch in house
    • Sauerkraut: fermented in house
    • Kimchi: fermented in house
    • Hot sauces, pickles, and relishes: all made from scratch in house

  • Our Story

    "Dawgtown is where street food meets skateboarding and surf. We are bringing back the 80’s dining experience, punk rock, old time street skate, and beach surf," says owner and chef, Lucas Manteca.

    "Dawgtown is where you can get something that will hit the spot, affordable, delicious and focused on the quality of ingredients. We make our mustards, sauerkraut, kimchi, hot sauces, pickles, relishes...all from scratch. We're insane like that."

    For over a decade, creative duo Lucas Manteca and artist/designer Deanna Ebner have owned and operated the best restaurants in South Jersey, including Quahog's Seafood Shack, and The Taco Shop. They opened The Red Store in Cape May Point in 2012 and Lucas was nominated for the prestigious James Beard Award in 2014 for Best Chef in the mid-Atlantic region.

     

    Highlighting seasonality and simplicity, Chef Lucas uses all locally sourced ingredients from the tri-state area.

     

    Lucas was nominated for the prestigious James Beard Award in 2014 for Best Chef in the mid-Atlantic region, and was recently named New Jersey's Local Food Hero by Edible Jersey magazine in recognition of his efforts to sustain the healthy bounty that defines the state.
