Southern Dawgs To Open Carry-Out Restaurant




As soon as the end of next week, Thomas Bourne is moving his popular Southern Dawgs hot dog cart indoors for a new carry-out restaurant located at 670 Waring, at Summer Avenue in Berclair.

Bourne says he's already passed health inspection and is waiting to complete the code enforcement process.

The brick-and-mortar Dawgs will have no tables or chairs. All orders are to-go. The hot dogs will continue to be served from the cart.

So will what will be new at the new Southern Dawgs?

"Cheese and mayonnaise, " says Bourne, noting that he wasn't allowed to serve either outdoors.

Bourne says he would like to serve sno-cones and soft-serve ice cream at the Waring store ... and, ideally, to eventually run a fleet of outdoor carts.

Meanwhile, as Bourne is getting the space ready, he also still selling hot dogs outside the Waring store using a friend's cart.

"I'm doing business as we speak," says Bourne. "I've sold 30 dogs today."

Southern Dawgs will be open Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. and Sunday, 1-6 p.m.
