At D's Haute Dogs, 551 Lincoln Ave. in Winnetka, hot dog lovers can choose Jamaican jerk pork sausage and garlic aioli, tomato basic chicken sausage and avocado, even mini corn dogs with Creole mustard.
We're basically a small grocery store, we have everything you can imagine," said owner Jared Boyar. "If there's something you like, just ask."
D's has been serving fast food to downtown Winnetka since 2007. The restaurant's fifth birthday is coming up, on November 15. When Boyar opened up the restaurant, it was the first of its kind in the area.
"I felt that there was a lack of food in this price range in the area," he said. "In 2007, there was no hot dog and burger place in Winnetka."
Boyar and his staff took North Shore fast food in a strange direction though, going above and beyond the standard dog and burger selection.
Instead, their menu features an eclectic assortment of items with names ranging from The Marley (as in Bob) to The Sinatra (as in Frank).
"I wanted to [open a restaurant] since I was a kid," Boyar said. "The town has been very supportive, we appreciate all of our customers."
"We know many of them by name and some of them by order," he added.
