Go ahead, tuck into a mouth-watering, bacon-wrapped, gourmet all-beef Haus dog nestled between grilled King’s Hawaiian rolls and creative accompaniments such as chipotle aioli and pickled jalapeños with cotija cheese. It’s then easy to see why the Dog Haus Biergarten’s owner, Ron Ryan, describes his menu as “fine dining on a bun.”
This craft-casual franchise concept started in California in 2010 by three friends who share a passion for quality food. Celebrity chef and reality TV star Adam Gertler collaborated with the team as the official Würstmacher, or sausage maker, to create innovative, top quality proprietary dogs, sausages and other offerings. Now Dog Haus Biergarten locations nationwide are known for next-level gourmet creations featuring sausages, burgers, hot dogs, corn dogs dipped in root-beer batter, sides and shakes. And a bonus: Each pairs nicely with one of the 24 craft beers on tap or something a little stronger from the full bar.
Ron Ryan has been in the restaurant biz for 30 years. Last year, he jumped at the unique opportunity to open in Richardson the very first Texas location of Dog Haus Biergarten. He was sold on the concept by the quality of its meat products (100% vegetarian-fed, hormone-free and antibiotic-free), the creativity and openness he saw from the originators of the franchise and their commitment to bettering their community.
Würst lovers will praise the juicy Haus sausages, also tucked into grilled King’s Hawaiian rolls, like the Pig Lebowski topped with fries, slaw and bbq sauce, or the Cocky Balboa featuring an Italian chicken-and-mozzarella sausage, wild arugula, pickled peppers and spicy basil aioli. One Haus sausage is called the Thai Fighter with a spicy Thai currywürst, wild arugula, pickled jalapeños and spicy basil aioli.
Hamburger devotees will flip for the award-winning, 100% black Angus burgers, topped with everything from Haus slaw and onion rings to pastrami and a fried egg. For the chicken lover a juicy and well-named Bad Mutha Clucka Chicken Sandwich is offered.
Situated in Richardson Restaurant Park along U.S. Hwy 75, Dog Haus Biergarten’s mostly-local craft brews and exclusively ‘80s playlist keep the vibes chill, while the open garage doors let in the enjoyable outside breeze – even on a hot summer Texas day.
Ron and his staff are always interested in customer feedback. When it comes to the biergarten, he shared, “Craft beer drinkers are highly conscious consumers and very critical about their beer, so we listen to them to maintain an always-current, top-tier selection of craft brews.”
Dog Haus Biergarten is passionately committed to supporting the community it serves. The eatery has partnered with No Kid Hungry for a year-long collaboration series with nationally known chefs, including Texas’ own Dean Fearing and TV personality Duff Goldman, to roll out a new menu item every two months this year; a portion of proceeds will benefit the national charity.
Dog Haus Biergarten Richardson, the first Dog Haus in Texas, is the first of 20+ planned locations in DFW. Three additional locations are in development and expected to open within the next 12 months.
There’s always something happening at Dog Haus Biergarten or in the adjacent large, grassy courtyard – fundraisers, live entertainment, dance lessons, painting parties, yoga classes and more. With inventive, delicious fare, a finely curated craft beer selection and a totally righteous atmosphere, at Dog Haus Biergarten, the hot dog is all grown up, and it’s the absolute würst.Dog Haus Biergarten >
