Dog Haus, the sausage restaurant that serves its wieners on sweet Kings Hawaiian roll buns, is taking over the world -- or at least the United States.

No, really. According to the company’s website, there are Dog Haus locations in six states, including nine locations now open in California, and more than 100 franchise locations “coming soon” to California, Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, Utah, and Texas.

One of those new locations is the Los Angeles Coliseum. You can now get Dog Haus dogs at all USC home football games.

So the next time you’ve got your “fight on” fingers in the air, you can be holding a Dog Haus hot dog in the other hand.


Dog Haus is now serving its Long Snap dog topped with cheese sauce, bacon and green onions; the Buffalo Soldier chicken sausage with buffalo sauce, blue cheese and crumbled BBQ chips; and the Thai Breaker spicy Thai sausage with peanut sauce, crushed peanuts and toasted coconut near Gate 16 at the Coliseum. See what they did there with those names?

You can also order tots, or Nice tots, topped with cheese sauce, bacon and green onions.

Dog Haus is also opening a franchise location at USC next month, in the former Freebirds World Burrito space on Figueroa Street.

3335 S. Figueroa St., Los Angeles,
