Willie's Dawgs delivered.
20th Street to Flatbush Avenue, Prospect Park West to Third Avenue.
Tofu dogs and marinated carrot dogs. Ask for the whole grain bun without egg wash; or the rye, which is vegan by default.
Willie’s promotes local dog rescue organizations and animal adoptions. And yes, they serve a lot of meat Dawgs, which they name after real, live dogs.

- We love Willie's! I love the Downward-Facing Dawg (Tofu) and the Phony Baloney (marinated carrot), plus the fries are awesome! Tom is cool, very friendly, and takes great care of his patrons. Willie is one of his dogs. We go there as often as we can.

- This place is the dawg's pajamas! The atmosphere is great. I love all the art featuring Brooklyn rescued and adoption-ready dogs. I love the mural featuring a sea of hot dog. It's such a colorful place. It's also really clean and doesn't stink of meaty hot dogs.
I had the veggie beans and the grilled carrot dog topped with sauerkraut. The beans were minimally seasoned (i.e. flavorless), but luckily they have a zillion kinds of mustard there so I was able to easily spice things up. The marinated carrot was awesome and huge. I'm not a huge fan of vegan hot dogs so it was a great alternative to the tofu dog.
I went late on a Friday night and there weren't very many customers so I can't speak to how speedy or not speedy the service is. I can say the staff is extremely attentive and genuinely friendly. I'll definitely go back whenever I am in the area.

- A pretty good tofu dog, and actually grilled. Next time I'll try the carrot. They're very liberal with the toppings and super-friendly. And their little soda fountain has ROYAL CROWN cola in it. So cool.

- If you want a hot dog with lots of fixings you can't go wrong here. The service was nice but slow when I was there. But niceness makes up for slowness, right?
