The hot dog trend continues: open as of last night is ~THE DOGFATHER~, the latest spot to join the local hot dog revolution. Eater originally sniffed up the trail, noting that it was opening in the former North Beach Lobster Shack. There are a variety of sausages on the menu, from bratwurst to hot links to wild boar, plus fries (french, chili-cheese, curly), corn dogs, and a ton of toppings (peppers, onions, mushrooms, relish, sauerkraut, avocado, and bacon). While a basic dog will put you back $3, you might not want to say “no” to the Dog Corleone: an Italian sausage which comes loaded with sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, and mozzarella for $7.50. Another is the Little P, a garlic sausage with crispy bacon, onion, cheddar cheese, and chili ($7.95, heartburn is complimentary). The owner is local boy Tommy Balistreri, who grew up in North Beach and noticed the neighborhood needed a good “salciceria.” As the menu says, “We’ll make you a sausage you can’t refuse.” Woof. Hours are 11am-11pm daily.
