It’s not just a trendy name, Local Burger prides itself on sourcing their food, beer and spirits locally — whenever possible.. The hot dogs are no exception.
They’re from The Brooklyn Hot Dog Company.
“The hot dogs are grass fed, nitrate-free, no antibiotics, no hormones,” says Local Burger co-owner Alyssa DiGirolomo.
“It’s just a really nice, clean hot dog that’s full of flavor.”
