Dog Haus to Come Home to Burbank On November 22
Acclaimed Gourmet Hot Dog, Sausage and Burger Concept to Welcome Community to the Haus with Free Hot Dog on Opening Day
Dog Haus, the celebrated Pasadena-based concept known for its gourmet hot dogs, sausages, burgers, and one-of-a-kind creations, will be opening its fourth franchise location in Burbank on Saturday, November 22th. Located at 3817 West Olive Avenue in the space formerly occupied by Taco Bell, the restaurant from franchisee Diana Ramos will be the 7th location of the emerging brand, which was originally founded by Partners André Vener, Hagop Giragossian and Quasim Riaz in 2010 to recapture the nostalgic childhood experience of eating a hot dog. To commemorate its arrival in the area, Ramos will be inviting locals to swing by the Haus for a free Haus Dog on opening day.
As part of that introduction to the community, guests will be able to swing by from 11 am – 10 pm on Saturday, November 22th to enjoy a free Haus Dog from a selection of Dog Haus’ classic all-beef skinless dog offerings, all served up on grilled King’s Hawaiian Rolls. Options will include fan favorites like the Sooo Cali with arugula, tomato, crispy onions, spicy basil aioli and avocado; the Downtown featuring a smoked bacon wrapped dog topped with caramelized onions, roasted bell peppers, mayo, mustard, and ketchup; and The Cowboy withwhite American cheese, smoked bacon, bbq sauce, and crispy onions.
To pair with their dogs, diners can order fare from Dog Haus’ full menu, which is rounded out with gourmet sausages, burgers, corn dogs, sides, and seasonal specials like this month’s Plymouth Rockwürst made with a turducken sausage, topped with apple cranberry mostarda, sweet potato tots and sausage gravy served on grilled King’s Hawaiian Rolls. Other Haus Sausage menu items include The Fonz that partners a spicy Italian sausage with pastrami and melted mozzarella; while the Das Brat features a bratwurst with caramelized onions, sauerkraut, white American cheese, and whole grain mustard aioli. Haus Burgers run the gamut from the trademarked The Freiburger®with white American cheese, a fried egg, haus slaw, fries and mayo; to the Holy Aioli with white American cheese, caramelized onions, smoked bacon, and garlic aioli.
Lighter eaters and kids can indulge in smaller-sized portions – the Dog slider is made with an all-beef mini dog, haus-made cheese sauce, shredded cheddar and bacon; the Burger slider has just the right amount of caramelized onions, white American cheese, and mayo; while the Corn Dogslider features an all-beef mini dog dipped in haus-made root beer batter. Equal attention is paid to the quality-driven sides, like Chili Cheese Tots or fresh-cut, twice-fried Fries with haus-made cheese sauce, cheddar, haus chili, and diced onions; beer-batteredOnion Rings; and Sweet Potato Fries. Our premium desserts including shakes & malts, cookies are a must have to end on a sweet note.
To complement the main offerings, diners can select from a thoughtful list of beers available on tap as well as canned options that will be appearing on the menu this winter. The restaurant will boast four craft drafts with a heavy emphasis on local breweries, including Eagle Rock, Stone, and Golden Road Brews going by the pint. Canned beers like Fat Tire, Pabst Blue Ribbon andThe Dudes will be served up in koozies – a nod to backyard summer BBQs.
The fast-casual concept, designed to elevate the nostalgic experience of eating that quintessential hot dog or burger, carries that nostalgia over to the aesthetic of the modern industrial space. After ordering at the counter, diners can gather around communal-style tables outfitted with bar stools or at cozier tables made from wood and steel that span the perimeter of the 1,388 square-foot restaurant. Striking red and black accents and playful expressions such as “The Absolute Würst” and “Sweet Buns” peppered throughout the restaurant enliven both the interior and exterior seating area of the stand-alone restaurant, bringing a modern sensibility to the classic concept.
The new restaurant, located at 3817 West Olive Avenue, Burbank, CA, 91505, will be open daily from 11 am – 10 pm. For more information call 626-796-HAUS or visit doghaus.com and follow Dog Haus Burbank on Facebook at DogHausBurbank to stay up to date on al location specific updates.
