About us


Embellished in bicycles, guitars and brewery memorabilia, Curious Dog is the Old City's funkiest counter-service restaurant offering epicurean hot dog and sandwich delicacies since 2010. 


Our hot dogs are 1/4 pound 100% Vienna beef franks deep fried and served on a steamed bun. All of our menu items are prepared using local, organic deli meats, cheeses and vegetables served on fresh loaf bread from a New York bakery.


We also offer vegetarian-friendly falafel dogs, hand-cut fries and house made sauces and spreads - all family recipes made fresh daily.


Our craft beer market is the largest beer package store in downtown Knoxville with over 200 different styles and flavors - available with your meal or on the go!
