Back in April, news broke of the dog-friendly restaurant/bar Mutts Cantina that was coming to Uptown in Dallas. It is now official that Mutts will open on Wednesday, June 19.
Mutts, the open-air restaurant from Free Range Concepts partners Josh Sepkowitz and Kyle Noonan and their partner Jeremy Frazer, will be in the prime Uptown spot on the corner of Cityplace West and Oak Grove Avenue that was previously part of the Hank Haney golf driving range. It will house a private dog park adjacent to the restaurant that will feature monthly memberships ($9.95 per dog) and one-day passes ($4.95 per dog). The monthly membership allows for unlimited visits to the 2-acre dog park
"The restaurant will be a fun place for people to gather for good food and drink," said co-owner Josh Sepkowitz. "But we want people to know that this is a restaurant first, dog park second. You don't need a dog to come to Mutts."
As for the menu, Mutts will serve burgers, hot dogs, wine, beer, frozen custard, shakes and more during lunch and dinner and breakfast tacos, oatmeal, yogurt parfait, donuts and coffee for breakfast. Food items of note include the Randy Travis hot dog that is soaked in beer and the Jessica Biel hot dog that is full onions and peppers and is "mighty, mighty hot...just like Jessica."
The only beef used will be naturally raised, grass-fed with no hormones or antibiotics from Harris Farms. Henry's Ice Cream will provide a "specially made for Mutts" frozen custard. Draft beers will be from Dallas-based breweries and all non-draft beer 100% recyclable aluminum cans.
