Hot diggity dawg: Gourmet hot dog eatery Tasty Dawg to open in Arena District

614now Staff

Columbus, rejoice. We’re getting more hot dogs. 

Gourmet hot dog eatery Tasty Dawg is set to open Dec. 10 in the Arena District. 

The establishment will be co-located with Zoup! Eatery at 155 W. Nationwide Boulevard and run by spouses and restaurateurs To Dailey and Sun Jin Pak. The couple operates existing Zoup! Eatery locations at 4971 Tuttle Crossing Blvd., 41 S. High Street on Capitol Square, and 155 W. Nationwide Boulevard in the Arena District and are Area Developers for Zoup! Eatery in Central and Southern Ohio. They also operate Tasty Main Catering. 

“Some folks might think we’re a little crazy to open a new eatery during these challenging times, but we saw it as a great opportunity to introduce a new casual dining concept to Columbus while leveraging our existing real estate,” said Dailey. “We’ll also be able to offer expanded employment opportunities and bring new energy to the Arena District.”


The eatery will initially only offer online orders for delivery or pickup, but customers can dine in the Zoup! Dining room. Beginning Dec. 10, orders can be placed via or via third party delivery apps such as GrubHub, Uber Eats, Postmates and DoorDash. 

Besides the all-beef dawgs served on Bavarian pretzel rolls, you’ll also be able to choose from sides such as Triangle Tots, Creamy White Cheddar Mac, Amish-style Coleslaw, and Chunky Beef Chili. 

Tasty Dawg will also offer freshly-baked cookies such as the Sweet and Salty Cookie, made with butterscotch and chocolate pieces, crushed pretzels, crumbled potato chips and ground coffee.
