America’s Dog & Burger Unveils New Menu and Restaurant Design

Chicago-Based Restaurant Announces New Chef-Inspired Hot Dogs and Gourmet Burgers; Redesigns Chicago’s Randolph St. Location to Exude All-American Eatery Environment 

CHICAGO – Chicago’s celebrated America’s Dog & Burger (AD&B), the tastiest idea to ever come out of a great American road trip, debuts its most innovative menu to date, rolling out a brand new collection of chef-driven, gourmet burgers and mouth-watering, city-inspired hot dogs.

Bursting onto Chicago’s culinary scene more than 20 years ago on the heels of their automotive adventure that included tasting the best hot dogs in cities throughout the United States, AD&B cofounders Manolis and George Alpogianis of Chicago’s renowned TAG Restaurant Group announced today a new line of creative and indulgent menu options. The updated menu further establishes the brand’s distinguishable position in the Windy City for offering the most compelling tastes of the nation in one dynamic, All-American eatery.

The new lineup at AD&B ranges from the Santa Fe Hot Dog (Vienna all beef hot dog, hardwood smoked bacon, chipotle aioli, caramelized onions, beer battered jalapeno caps and cotija cheese on a Texas toast roll) to the Ghost Burger (hardwood smoked bacon, spicy ghost pepper cheese, guacamole and onion strings on a butter brioche bun). And, beyond its acclaimed city dogs and burgers, AD&B is also unveiling a selection of chicken sandwiches, salads and sides. Everything on the menu is fresh, never frozen and all ingredients are prepared in-house. The full menu can be seen at

“We’ve channeled our vast culinary experience and thrown in more hometown flavors from cities coast-to-coast to create a menu that’s both diverse and unique,” said Manolis Alpogianis, who has helped his family operate several well-known restaurants, including the awarding-winning Kappy’s American Grill in Morton Grove, Illinois. “There’s no better place for our guests to enjoy the tastes of the nation, than right here in the culinary epicenter of the country – Chicago.”

As partner and executive chef for AD&B, Manolis’ brother George leveraged his food expertise to spearhead the brand’s menu innovation. After previously working at well-known Chicago restaurants including City Tavern, Lawry’s and Rosebud, George acquired a passion for the varied cuisines of America and perfected his mastery of flavor combinations, which have been carried over into AD&B’s recipes. Unique to AD&B, the brand will partner with Chicago celebrity chefs to introduce a new chef-driven hot dog each quarter.

Beyond its menu development, AD&B also has plans in store to revamp the brand’s existing Randolph St. location later this year. Gensler, the esteemed international design firm, recreated the restaurant’s interior to exude a classic, all-American eatery environment. The remodeled layout features community picnic-style tables, food truck condiment stations and photos of family and friends’ road trips lining the wall. The décor and dining space channels the nostalgia of the original road trip, adding to the restaurant’s fun, casual and inviting atmosphere. Plus, the renovated interior serves as inspiration for AD&B’s new prototype design, which will be rolled out with all future franchise locations – a strategic growth initiative AD&B announced earlier this month.

Maintaining a recipe for success, AD&B currently has three locations, each situated at prime destinations – Chicago’s Navy Pier, O’Hare Airport and in Chicago’s Loop at the corner of Randolph and State Streets. Now, with the family-run restaurant’s strategic growth plan in place, the brand foresees tremendous regional expansion ahead and is awarding franchise opportunities to passionate individuals and teams attracted to AD&B’s distinguishable niche.
