New hot dog concept comes to Italian Village food hall

Diners in Italian Village now have a spot to satisfy their hot dog fix.

Junkyard Dogs, the recently-opened eatery from Ed Bisconti of Borgata Pizza Cafe and QFM96 host Jerry Elliot, has taken over the Hatch kitchen in Budd Dairy Food Hall, a rotating space for vendors.

According to Bisconti, Junkyard Dogs will occupy the Hatch kitchen for the next 90 days. Junkyard Dogs replaced The Pitt BBQ Grille. The hot dog spot opened its original location in Worthington last July.


The eatery focuses on serving high-quality hot dogs with a variety of toppings, milkshakes, fries, and Hubcaps, thick-cut potato chips that are fried and coated with Buffalo seasoning.

According to Bisconti, the eatery’s menu at Budd Dairy Food Hall will be the same as its Worthington restaurant with the exception of soft drinks. While milkshakes will remain, the Budd Dairy Junkyard Dogs will not serve soft drinks, as Bisconti said the food hall already offers a wide variety of similar products.
