Exotic sausages are a specialty at D’s Haute Dogs in Winnetka where the foods also have interesting names such as the Zeus, the Marley and the Delmonico.
So what exactly are in these dogs?
Zeus – gyros sausage, tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, feta cheese and Tzatziki sauce.
Marley – Jamaican jerk pork sausage, green onions, shredded lettuce and garlic aioli.
Delmonico – Rib-eye steak sausage, sautéed mushrooms, fried onion crisps and horseradish cream sauce.
“Our butcher hand crafts our sausages for us on a weekly basis,” said owner Jared Boyar.
One of the best sellers at the store is the JHA, named after Boyar’s friend Jim Anderson. The JHA is a burger covered in Merkts cheddar, bacon and fried onion crisps.
While the store may be called D’s Haute Dogs, the prices are very reasonable, ranging from $3 to $6 for the hot dogs.
“We wanted to bring fun, affordable food to Winnetka,” Boyar said.
