D’s SixPax & Dogz (Regent Square) — I started going there last year at first for the beer (they have everything you could ever imagine). As I got drunk, I got hungry, ordered the world’s best cheese fries and one thing led to another. I know I’m a bad Hindu for what I’m about to say…but there is NOTHING that beats the succulence of a vienna all-BEEF hot dog (chicago style complete with neon green relish)! It is truly worth dying several times for.
More than that, D’s is my home away from home. When friends come to visit, I take them there. When I’m in a good/bad mood, it’s my favorite escape. I’ve even done my homework there. Sometimes, I go just to chat it up with no one in particular. The bartenders/line cooks are freaking cool and Dino (the owner) is quite possibly my favorite public figure in PGH. They are going to expand this month, so here will be more room to mingle. Go there, get your card stamped & keep them busy!
