“Keep it simple. Everybody loves a hot dog.”
These frequent words of advice from her father inspired Pamela Swanson, along with partner Lionel Holmes, to open Haute Dogs & Fries in May 2010. Pamela and Lionel share a common vision: open a restaurant that gives families a fun time out together without putting a dent in their wallet. Their philosophy remains simple: provide exceptional taste at an exceptional value.
Haute Dogs & Fries offers a fresh take on the family dining experience, serving the same hot dogs found at Boston’s Fenway Park. However, these aren’t your typical ballpark franks. Each hot dog is served hot off the grill on fresh, New England style buns and dressed with fresh toppings such as caramelized onions, sauerkraut, jalapeño peppers, mangoes, and Lionel’s own homemade Chili recipe. Handcut french fries made from Idaho potatoes and sweet potatoes are a specialty at Haute Dogs & Fries and complement every dish.
Lionel and Pamela’s approach is to seek out locally produced products from local vendors whenever possible. They are proud to serve the freshest sausages from Lothar’s Gourmet Sausages of Hamilton, Virginia and Fields of Athenry, located in Purcellville, Virginia. In addition to hot dogs, Haute Dogs & Fries has a wide menu that includes bratwursts, kielbasas, and sweet Italian sausages.
