If you enjoy hot dogs as much as I do, you won’t want to miss Joe’s Farm Grill’s “Dog Days of Summer.” For the month of September, the Gilbert eatery will sell 14 specialty hot dogs.
“What goes better with summer than hot dogs?” Joe’s Farm Grill chef Chad Burnett asks. “Tim (Peelen, the restaurant’s operating partner) and I are both big fans of hot dogs.”
Burnett (pictured above) was tasked with creating the various dogs, which are available 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Two styles will be offered each day, so all 14 will be available each week.
The specialty dogs are:
Asian: Topped with shredded carrots, bean sprouts, scallions, wasabi mayo and teriyaki glaze. (pictured at left top)
Cobb: Topped with romaine , bacon, tomato, egg and blue cheese dressing.
Carolina: Topped with pulled pork and creamy coleslaw.
The 3B: Top with bacon, bleu cheese and Joe’s Real BBQ sauce.
Sonoran: Wrapped in bacon and topped with farm beans, melted cheeses, jalapenos and sour cream. (pictured second)
Cordon Bleu: Wrapped in smoked ham and Swiss cheese and topped with a fried egg and Dijon aioli.
Swedish: Topped with garlic whipped potatoes and lingonberry sauce. (pictured third)
British: Topped with horseradish, caramelized onions and sharp cheddar.
Trailer Park: Topped with Cheese Wiz and crumbled potato chips.
Spanakopita: Topped with creamed spinach, artichokes and feta cheese. (pictured fourth)
Rueben: Topped with sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and Thousand Island dressing.
Mediterranean: Topped with feta cheese, kalamata olives, roasted peppers and pesto mayo. (pictured bottom)
Buffalo: Topped with carrots, celery, buffalo hot sauce and bleu cheese dressing.
All feature quarter-pound, all-beef dogs that are grilled with the exception of the Sonoran, which is deep-fried.
The 33-year-old chef says his favorites are the Swedish, Hawaiian, Asian and Cobb.
“This whole promotion has inspired me to do a hot dog place someday,” he says.
The dogs cost $6.99 with fries, or $9.99 for two dogs with fries. Joe’s also is selling lemonade and strawberry lemonade.
In addition, Joe’s is offering a breakfast dog — smothered with jalapeno-sausage gravy and topped with a scrambled or fried egg — for $7.99 every morning.
