What began as a reason to hang his sound engineer headphones up, is now one of Glasgow’s most sought-after venues. Surf Dogs is the brainchild of Martin Capaldi, who wanted to bring the streetfood of America he’d experienced on tour to Glaswegians. This hotdog specialist boasts an extensive menu of ‘dogs’ ranging from the famous Surf Dog made with Bavarian smoked pork and caramelised onion on a freshly-baked torpedo bun, to the classic chilli dog topped with housemade chilli, jalapenos and sour cream. With vegan and vegetarian options as well, this Shawlands restaurant is packed with dishes to suit everyone. You’ll find this American specialist on Kilmarnock Road – reserve ahead to avoid disappointment.
We had a great time at surf dogs, proper hot dogs with great toppings and excellent dessert too - who doesn't love a chocolate smore! Catered for children too with smaller size dogs! The service was excellent too, all staff were very efficient and delightful. We will Def be back!
