Cleveland’s entry on this list is truly decadent or disgusting, depending on your tastes. The Slider Dog takes an all-beef hot dog and tops it with pimento macaroni and cheese and bacon. But wait! There’s more. In addition, they slap on a scoop of Froot Loops breakfast cereal for the final ingredient.

Recently, the Slider Dog won over Cameron Guuzo, who goes by @attheballpark on TikTok. He tried the dog on a recent visit to Progressive Field.

“The bacon obviously works well with the mac and cheese, but the Froot Loops gives the bacon a mapley flavor that I didn’t expect,” he said. “Shock factor aside, this is a pretty solid dog.”

While you’re perusing Ohio sports betting apps at the ballpark, you can get a Slider Dog at Progressive Field’s Happy Dog concession stand, behind section 159. The cost is $11.

Guardians Top Dog In AL Central

It’s not just the Slider Dog getting rave reviews at the ballpark this season. The Cleveland Guardians are off to an impressive start. Their 20-11 record through Friday afternoon was the best in the American League Central and tied with the Baltimore Orioles for best overall in the AL. Not bad for a team whose preseason odds to win the World Series were +6600 at BetMGM Ohio Sportsbook. Those odds as of Friday are +3300.

The Guardians’ top dog this season is leftfielder Steven Kwan. The 26-year-old is hitting .349 with three home runs and 28 runs scored in 30 games. At FanDuel Ohio Sportsbook, his odds to win the AL MVP this season are +8000.

BetOhio might not have a unique hot dog on its menu, but we do offer the latest insights on Ohio sports betting and gaming news, plus the best available promo codes for Ohio sportsbooks.
