Story by Mariah Cowsert
Hot dog, hot dog, hot diggity dog. Jonny B’z Hot Dogs & More, located at 638 Wealthy Street next to Rowster’s Coffee and Nourish Green Grocer, is home to unique hot dogs, hamburgers and corn dogs that are sure to please the whole family.
Forget about the dogs of the past with flimsy buns and hamburgers made with beef fillers. At Jonny B’z you can get 100 percent beef patties, Chicago style hot dogs with grilled buns and vegan corn dogs and hot dogs (that’s right fellow veggie folks) at a reasonable cost for any college student.
As a long-time vegetarian, I was pleased to discover the vegan corn dogs at Jonny B’z and frequent the restaurant as a place to meet up with friends and family while satisfying my search for a hot dog diner that offers more than sauerkraut as a beef substitute.
After opening their door in 2009, Jonny B’z has served college students that want to venture out from their late night Yesterdog feasts and families who want a casual sit down restaurant for their kids. They offer friendly service and a pin-ball machine to keep busy while you wait for your dogs to arrive at your table.
While most AQ students who find themselves wandering the streets of Eastown in search of late night eats, Jonny B’z remains open until 3 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays to cater the needs of hungry college weekenders.
“With buns like these, who wouldn’t want to check them out?” says Aquinas senior Connor Manion. To check out what Jonny B’z has to offer your tastebuds, visit their Facebook page or website for a full menu and be on the lookout for updates as they will be soon be offering craft beer in store.
