Brätworks’ dogs are naturally smoked, freshly baked, and a healthier alternative than the typical cuisine at a fast food restaurant. Brätlack franks lack sodium nitrates. The restaurant has a very contemporary feel to it, giving off a “hipster” vibe with bricks decorating the walls.
After hearing only positive things about the restaurant and viewing their promising reviews on Yelp, I decided to give it a go.
When I walked in, I didn’t expect it to look like a Subway or Chipotle, but the interior closely resembled both of them.
Brätworks allows you to customize your hot dog, offering multiple options for your dogs, buns, and toppings.
Instead of ordering typical hot dogs, my friend and I decided to try the classics, which were an Italian and plain beef dog.
One downside to the restaurant would be the lack of combos, because everything is ordered à la carte.
Brätworks is definitely not like Weinershnitzel and may be a little on the pricey side. You can expect to spend about $7 on one hot dog.
Although our hot dogs were more expensive than usual, they also tasted better and were larger than a typical frankfurter.
Overall, I felt that the restaurant lived up to the expectations and hype it received.
The Italian dog I ordered tasted exactly like spaghetti in hot dog form. The marinara sauce was perfect and the bun was, in fact, freshly baked.
Not only was the food great, but the service was exceptional.
The employees asked us if it was our first time dining with them and explained to us how to customize our order.
finished eating, the employees asked us if we enjoyed our meals.
Brätworks is technologically advanced with their registers and their soda fountains, which gave it a more modern feel that many college students love.
Brätworks is a great place to frequent every so often, meet up with friends, or get some school work done while you get a bite to eat.
It’s the perfect place to go to for a late night snack during those long, arduous nights of studying or well-deserved procrastination.
