Business has been booming in Shelby Park, bringing new life to the community.
One of those shops specializes in gourmet hot dogs.
Red Top Hot Dogs started as a food truck, and has grown into a brick and mortar restaurant on Logan Street.
The hot dog shop serves grassfed beef hot dogs and handcrafted gourmet game sausages – including boar, bison and elk. Tofu dogs are also available for those who aren’t fond of meat.
Some of the dogs take on the names of neighborhoods – like the Germantown, which features a wild boar sausage on a pretzel buns, topped with smoked gouda beer cheese, bourbon grilled onions, apple bacon sauerkraut and bourbon molasses.
Those who prefer a meatless entree can opt for the Shelby – vegan sausage on a pretzel bun, with gouda beer cheese, and two sauces slathered on top.
Red Top also serves craft sodas and beers from several local breweries.
The hours listed on their Facebook page are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and Noon to 8 p.m. on Sundays. The restaurant is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
