Joe’s Farm Grill is closed today for some remodeling – including a re-designed beverage and condiment station – but will reopen Thursday to continue its annual Dog Days of Summer promotion.
Every late summer, the Gilbert eatery offers a month-long lineup of specialty hot dogs. This year, a few favorites are beng retired – like the Swedish Dog with garlic mashed potatoes and lingonberry jam – to make room for some newcomers.
This year’s Dog Days dogs:
- Frito Chili Pie Dog (new): Fritos, homemade chili, Cheez Whiz, sour cream, and chopped sweet onions (knife and fork recommended!)
- Turkey Jalapeno Dog (new): Schreiner’s Southwest turkey sausage grilled and doused with Gunslinger Jalapeno sauce and homemade sweet-hot pepper relish.
- White Hot Dog (new): Mild pork-and-veal dog made especially for JFG by the German Sausage Company in Phoenix. Grilled and served with stone-ground mustard, chopped sweet onions and pickles (ask for sauerkraut if you like).
- Full Pounder Dog (new): Two grilled, split dogs with homemade chili, sauerkraut, jack cheese, grilled onions, sweet-hot pepper relish, pickles and Dijon aioli on a buttered, grilled sub roll (no substitutions!)
- Hawaiian Dog: Wrapped in ham and topped with melted Monterey jack cheese, bacon and pineapple-serrano sauce
- Carolina Dog: Topped with pulled pork, coleslaw, and Joe’s Real BBQ sauce
- 3B Dog: Apple wood-smoked bacon, blue cheese, and BBQ sauce
- Rueben Dog: Topped with sauerkraut, melted swiss cheese, Thousand Island dressing, and JFG pickles
- Sonoran Dog: Bacon-wrapped, deep fried, and topped with melted jack cheese, homemade Farm beans, sour cream and jalapenos (a fave that finally was added to every-day menu last year)
- Cordon Bleu Dog: Wrapped in ham, topped with melted swiss, Dijon aioli, pickles, and a fried egg (over medium).
The dogs are all-beef, natural-casing hot dogs made locally by Schreiner’s Fine Sausages, unless otherwise noted. Each is served in a grilled split-top bun.
Prices are $6.99 for one dog with choice of side, and $9.99 for two dogs with side. The Full Pounder counts as two dogs.
Dog Days run through Sept. 30.
