Locally Chef owned and operated, River Dog Cafe, is a family friendly restaurant and food truck in greater Cleveland. The expanded space with new menu items and a full bar is now open!
The chef/owner, Christian Barnes, has the only all natural, clean label, Artisan hot dog served in Cleveland. In January he finalized his recipe and now has River Dogs exclusively and locally produced; using 100% Angus Beef (absolutely no fillers), REAL spices, and uncured — meaning there are no chemical nitrates added! These high quality dogs are then dressed with chef driven gourmet toppings that are deliciously crafted. But don’t be fooled by the name, there is more than meets the eye in this local hot dog joint. Beyond the Dog — try our slow braised brisket in house, Duck Breast BLT, made to order mac n cheese with our cheese sauce made fresh daily, or if you are looking for lighter fare try our Build a Bowl/Wrap where you pick your greens, veggies, and protein with a variety of house made dressings to choose from. Happy hour is Tues – Sat 3-6:30p with great deals for the whole family. In the fall book your “Drive-By Clam Bakes” with the River Dog Food Truck.
