Fresh cut fries, Chicago style dogs and morePublished 7:00am Tuesday, July 15, 2014
Southern palates can get a taste of the north by stopping in at Picayune’s newest restaurant, Dog-N-Burger, which opened earlier this month.
Located at 402 West Canal St., the family owned business offers Chicago style hotdogs, specialty burgers and the only place in town where patrons can purchase an Italian Style Beef sandwich, said Travis Nunnery.
Angel Nunnery, the business’ owner, has been in a kitchen since she was a little girl. As a child she helped her mother and aunt in the kitchen. She also ran the Highway 43 Grill.
Travis Nunnery said he has been in the restaurant business almost all of his life, and chose the menu based off of his experiences growing up in the Chicago area. That experience lead to the addition of Chicago style hot dogs and the famous Italian Style Beef.
“It’s a bit of the north down here,” Angel Nunnery said.
Travis Nunnery said he uses original Italian bread in those sandwiches, because other breads tend to fall apart from the juices in the meal.
“The Italian Beef is to die for,” Travis Nunnery said.
Currently the business accepts only cash, but Travis Nunnery said they will be able to accept credit and debit cards by the end of this week.
One thing that helps the business stand out is the fact that they will deliver to another business. Dog N Burger will deliver their full menu to local businesses for lunch and dinner. Currently, residential delivery is not offered due to staff limitations.
All of their food is made from premium ingredients, including Nathan’s beef hot dogs, 100 percent beef hamburgers and fresh cut fries.
They also offer all beef polish sausage and beer brats.
The business currently employs five people, all of which are family, or considered family, Angel Nunnery said.
As customers enter the restaurant they will be greeted with 50s and 60s decor, which Travis Nunnery said took weeks to collect. Records and old tin signs line the walls, and free Wi-Fi is offered to the customers.
Dog-N-Burger is currently one of the few family run businesses open seven days a week in Picayune. Travis said they are testing the market, so their hours may change.
Currently the restaurant is open from 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday.
Delivery is offered Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for lunch, and 4 to 6 p.m. for dinner.
Delivery is not offered on Sundays.
