This aviation-themed wiener wonderland on Capitol Hill specializes in "quality" hot dogs ranging from "killer" favorites like the California Left Winger (falafel and avocado) to “veggie” versions and beyond; “quick” , “personable” service keeps the mood "fun" here.

Just had to write to let all good folks what an absolutely delightful time my lovely bride & I had at DC-3. We make an annual pilgrimage into DC from New Jersey to celebrate our anniversary (this year it was 18!), & last year, we added DC-3 to our trip due to the availability of veggie dogs on the menu. We stopped there right as we hit the city after our long drive & were not disappointed. We so appreciate DC-3 offering veggie dogs as I am vegetarian & my girl is vegan so we had to stop in. It was yummy & we decided to make it our first destination every year! This year, tho', really solidified our love of DC-3 & we had to share this. It was so much more delicious & special. David greeted us with such enthusiasm & genuine caring, we felt incredibly welcome & warm after our arduous journey from the netherlands of Jersey. We were even more thrilled when we tasted our dogs- they were even more delicious than last year & indeed some of the best veggie dogs we have ever had. David & all the folks at DC-3 were utterly delightful & the veggie dogs & fries were absolutely delectable. Big ups to DC-3for offering the veggie dogs, but even moreso for doing so in such a wonderful & welcoming fashion. Kudos to David & his crew- they should be recognized & indeed celebrated for their excellent, friendly & downright familial service & fantastic, oh-so-yummy foods.
