Dante's culinary ambitions were inspired by John Kennedy Toole's A Confederacy Of Dunces, a novel he read at 19. In the book, Ignatius J. Reilly crashes and burns as a hot dog vendor. Dante always wondered whether he could succeed where Ignatius failed, but got away from those ambitions in adulthood. Throughout his 20s, he worked all over the Pacific Northwest tending tables and manning a non-profit business. At the age of 30, he decided to try his luck at his old passion. With that, Dante's Inferno Dogs was born, sporting several carts and units in and around Seattle, WA. Dante's offers catering services, so you can bring these gourmet dogs straight to your guests at your next event.
In addition to artisan hot dogs and sausages, the menu has grown to include 100% Angus beef burgers, freshly baked pretzels, cotton candy, popcorn, and ice cream. There's a little something for everyone here. Whether you prefer an old-fashioned hot dog with ketchup and mustard or a decadent frank smothered in ingredients like cream cheese and sweet chili sauce, you'll find just that here. And the cart's name? This means you can get your eats smokin' hot with toppings like spicy chipotle and jalapeño on the menu. There are even vegetarian hot dogs, so the non-carnivorous need not go hungry here. Are you drooling? Stop on by and sample the eats or, better yet, book Dante's Inferno Dogs for your next event. You won't regret it.
