here isn’t much that hasn’t been said about Yesterdog (1505 Wealthy St. SE, Grand Rapids), except what isn’t on the menu—asking for the spilt hotdog goop on the prep trays in a Pepsi cup


(if you’re tacky like me). The titular chili, onion, pickle, ketchup and mustard wet dog is a mere $1.80. The Krautdog holds mustard, pickle and good, sloppy warm sauerkraut for $2. The Veggie contains no dog and all -- cheese, kraut, onion, pickle, ketchup, and mustard between two buns at $2. The Cheddardog consists of shredded cheddar and chili. Ultradog has all the chili, cheese, onion, pickle, ketchup, mustard and bun you could want for $2.10. For the peckish spendthrift: a Killerdog has everything the other dogs have for $2.30. They have yet to install a pig trough for the 2 a.m. bar rush, but you could ask for the secretive Ghetto Platter while you wait for that festive fixture to become planted by the back bathroom. Out of the 176 restaurants managed by


The Gilmore Collection, Nick Fink’s Bar (3965 W. River Dr., Comstock Park) has a historic character no other establishment can possibly attain. Although renovated past the point of rec- ognition on the interior (many are split on this divisive change), you cannot combat the booz- ing that can accompany the daily happy hour menu from 3-6 p.m. For a handful of dimes, you can enjoy a personal pizza or a gourmet slider — a classic margarita pizzelle consisting of mozzarella and olive oil with a spicy tomato sauce or a decadent green olive pizzelle stand out as does the pulled pork slider and the lobster basil aioli.
