It’s fun. It’s different. Its social mission is deliciousness. And it’s coming to Saline!
The anxiously-awaited Detroit Dog Company (103 N. Ann Arbor St, Saline) will open its doors to the public for the first time this Saturday, December 7 at 11 AM. For their grand opening, they will be offering a “prefix” menu – the Original Detroit Dog, hand-cut fries, deep-fried cookie dough, deep-fried brownies served with homemade whipped cream, Calder Dairy shakes, Faygo in glass bottles and Faygo floats.
The Detroit Dog Company, with its Detroit-inspired menu and décor, is the brainchild of Catrina Vlisides. Ms. Vlisides has spent most of her life in the restaurant business. Her father, a long-time restaurateur, has been helping take this restaurant from vision to reality. “Being able to bring my design to life,” Vlisides explains, “has been incredible. I just hope everyone loves it as much as I do. I have been blessed with a father who knows this business and has taught me so much. I am happy that he is a part of the Detroit Dog Company and continues to be an active partner.”
Vlisides’ deep love for Detroit’s glory days and its rich culture and fabulous food is evident. Everything in the restaurant – from the food and drinks to the painting on the wall – has been locally sourced and handcrafted. Even the bricks on the interior walls were reclaimed from old Detroit buildings.
And the hot dogs? Well, they’re pure Detroit too. Try the Rock City (wrapped in bacon, deep fried, topped with cheese and grilled onions), the Mexicantown (ground chorizo, avocado, tomato, jalapenos, cheddar and sour cream), or the Boblo Island BBQ (with house-made sweet coleslaw, onion rings and barbeque sauce). Yum!
