About Dirty Dog

My name is Binyam Wolde and I am the owner of Dirty Dog hot dog stand.  I started my business in 2010 and since its inception I have served at hundreds of sporting, arts, and entertainment events in the King County area.  I grew my business from scratch and its success is founded upon hard work, dedication, and a reputation built upon quality, integrity, and friendliness.

I came to Seattle at the age of sixteen from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and struggled through the education system while trying to learn the English language.  The perseverance it took to graduate high school in a new country taught me the dedication needed to succeed in this country. It also taught me that I could do anything that I put my mind to, which is why in 2010 I purchased a hot dog cart and decided to start my own business.  My interest in cooking and business came from growing up and watching my grandmother cook every day in Addis Ababa and run a small business by herself.  She is my inspiration.
I believe my business has the spirit, integrity, quality, and ingenuity to serve the people of Seattle well.

What they say about our Hog Dog

  • This place is incredible.  I’ve only had their dogs once, it was heavenly, but that’s only a small reason why I’m going with 5 stars.  
    For starters, they were at the Seattle Majestics game (Women’s tackle football league, and no, not lingerie.  Strong, amazing, powerful women playing full-contact tackle football.) so supporting that whole community is important to me.

  • What can I say? I like them Dirty. All jokes aside, there’s nothing quite like inhaling a cream cheese-smothered hotdog while you watch drunken ladies in knee high stiletto rhinestone boots stumble around incoherently babbling. The Polish hot dogs are fantastic and the unlimited toppings bar is awesome. I like mine with caramelized onions, cream cheese, and barbecue sauce – nothing else. They add the cream cheese and onions on for you, but the rest of the toppings are self-serve. People-watching while you eat a Dirty Dog and wait for your Uber to arrive is half the fun. A Seattle must-do! Don’t drop your hot dog, or you will be a sad panda. (You’ll probably make some city pigeons very happy the next day however.)

  • Their food truck visited our site.  They do not have a large menu, but this is perfect if you are in the mood for a good hot dog. Mine was perfect–good beef dog, bacon, and grilled onions on a nice bun.  It was a good sized dog also, just right for lunch.
