Podcast #2

Featuring Good Dog’s Susan Wybenga


We’re back at it with the second installment of the CHA Eats podcast. Jon and Carlos kick things off with the drinks and appetizer section discussing the opening of Champy’s second location, the Food-a-Rama event happening at Coolidge Park along with the Readers and Writers Fair.

The week’s main entree is an interview with Susan Wybenga, owner of Good Dog — the gourmet hot dog shop on Frazier Avenue, in the Northshore. Susan shares the inspiration behind the store, and reveals how things fell into place.

Hear how Good Dog made people rethink the hot dog from the dressings between the buns, the colors in the store and food as art. The restaurant makes everything about people.

Does Good Dog have a secret menu?

We love Susan’s candor, her passion for hot dogs and all things Chattanooga. Lot’s of name dropping and good old fashioned Nooga connections make for a tasty conversation. We also ask which restaurants Susan likes to frequent.

Last, but not least we’ve got dessert! Jon and Carlos serve up a tasty look at what’s coming up for Chattanooga Eats. The online directory has been updated to include about 350 local restaurants. Does that seem about right to you? Plus, a quick recap on the Chattanooga Food Blogger Meet Up.
