🌭 These dogs are worth the price

👋 Tyler here. Junkyard dogs are supposed to be ferocious and uninviting, but before I went on leave, I received a friendly welcome at Junkyard Dogs restaurant in the Linworth Crossing shopping plaza.

What I ate: Two custom-built hot dogs ($7) topped with grilled peppers and onions, cheddar cheese, tomatoes and scallions, plus an order of seasoned fries ($5).

My take: Solid dogs with fresh ingredients on top? Always a winning combination.

  • A more-cooked bun would kick these up to elite status.

But, but, but: Goodness gracious, these fries. They can fix a bad mood, tune up your car and solve America's inflation crisis.

  • Get 'em with the garlic aioli. Trust me.

The bottom line: Junkyard Dogs feels a bit like Five Guys — a tad pricey, but you do get a ton of food for your buck.

If you go: 2245 W. Dublin-Granville Road, Worthington, 11am-9pm. Closed Sundays.
