Opposite The State Library and right near busy Melbourne Central Station is a hot dog joint worth raving about. The vibrant yellow signs and outdoor sitting area beat the drum for tasty and fun hot dogs.

The Snag Stand is serious about it's hot dogs though, calling them 'haute dogs'. It is home to arguably the most delicious gourmet hot dogs in Melbourne, made from quality meats and soft brioche rolls. As well as American Classics and German Bratwurst selections, The Stag Stand has hot dogs on offer inspired from cuisine all over the world.

Try the Greek inspired lamb, rosemary & oregano, or the Chicken and Rocket on a poppyseed bun. The 'Backyarder' is a testament to the Australian BBQ, with aussie beef and tomato sauce, on a rustic roll with creamy coleslaw, smokey bbq cheese and cheddar cheese.

Things are also looking up for your vegetarian friends at The Snag Stand, with numerous veggie dogs available including a vegetarian version of their Spicy Spanish Chorizo.

Unlike your typical processed veggie-dogs, the Snag Stand uses vegetables like potato and sage to create their dogs. Grilled and served with semi sun-dried tomatoes, baby rocket, chipotle mayo and shredded spanish goats cheese on a brioche roll, the veggie dog here is full of flavour. Prices for both meat and vegetarian options range from $8.90 to $10.90.
