I’m excited to share my experience with you on the new hot dog restaurant that opened in Downtown Buffalo last month, Dog E Style.  Offering one of a kind hot dogs, Dog E Style, not only offers great food, but has a fully stocked bar and is located in a unique space downtown. Read more of my interview with Thomas Cowen below and see why they are moving Buffalo forward.

How did the concept of Dog E Style begin? 
Rocco Termini came up with the idea and is working on “building a neighborhood” in the heart of the City of Buffalo.

Where did the idea and name come from? 
The idea came to us because everyone loves hot dogs! We also added a nice craft beer selection and a restaurant that can offer a full bar with liquor and wine. The name was meant to stick, so people would remember us. Once you stop in to see us you will realize the time and effort we put in to create “not your typical hot dog restaurant.”

How did you decide on the space for the restaurant?
We kicked around the idea of using old shipping containers so we contacted the manufacturer that makes the containers, bought the materials and put them together on sight, along with steal beams to make it weather and climate proof.

What would you say makes you stand out from your competition, other hot dog/fast food places?
We are not your average hot dog stand. We are a Hot Dog restaurant that serves not your everyday hot dog, we serve all different kinds. Special made wieners, sausage, cheeseburgers & a few vegetarian options.
A few items we serve are:
BANH MI DOG     – Chinese sausage, Saigon style, house made  Jalapenos & Saigon veggies
GREEK DOG        – Lamb dog, tzatziki, olives, pepperoncini, feta
CHICAGO DOG   – True Chicago style Dog – poppy seed bun, neon relish, sport peppers, tomatoes, mustard, onion, celery salt & pickle
House made Cheeseburger
House Made Fries
Portabella Sandwich with a fried egg
NO DOG – slow roasted caramelized carrot, spicy mayo, vegetarian chili

What would you like customers to get out of their experience when visiting Dog E Style? 
Different. Affordable. Casual. Relaxed 

Why did you choose downtown Buffalo and not a suburb? 
Downtown Buffalo is on the Up & Up. If you haven’t been downtown in a while you are missing out on a city that is coming back to life. We want to show people that it is ok to start investing in this city again. There are so many things happening all over, whether its the Waterfront, revitalizing the Chippewa/ Entertainment District or the Medical Corridor, you see cranes and hardhats everywhere. Delaware North, IBM, Roswell, Terry Pegula, they are all showing that now is the time to get in the city!  

What about Buffalo do you love the most? 
The People!

Is there any other information or specials you feature that you’d like the general public to know about? 
We are always running special dogs! Our website will be up and running soon, but in the meantime stay up to date with us on are social media pages.

Does Dog E Style feature catering or will they in the near future?
Yes, we offer drop-off catering for your office for lunch, dinner or even if you want to pick it up for any special event you can.

Me and the guys from work thought the food was awesome, the space was great and it is on our list of places to visit again and again {especially for lunch}. Thank you Tessa and Tom for helping me share more information on Dog E Style. And a special thank you to Mr. Termini for continuing to move Buffalo forward.
