Hot Doug's Replacement Launches New Era Tomorrow in Avondale

Tomorrow marks the day that a new restaurant opens in the former home of the legendary Hot Doug's. The folks behind Ukrainian Village's Fatso's Last Stand are bringing Frank Meats Patty, a more traditional burger and hot dog stand, to Avondale, and ownership is looking forward to giving locals a more accessible option for classic burgers and dogs rather than the epic lines and odd hours that were a hallmark for years at California and Roscoe.

To that end, Frank Meats Patty is introducing itself to the neighborhood by offering a free sandwich, fries and a drink to the first 20 people when it opens at 10:30 a.m. The full menu is available on its website, which, as promised, is similar to the Fatso's menu while adding former off-menu items including the "Ooey Gooey," shrimp po' boy, and a game burger of the month, which is a buffalo sausage burger (pepper jack, fire-roasted poblano peppers, pickled shallots) in January.

It'll officially be the end of an era—and the beginning of a new era—tomorrow at 10:30 a.m. at California and Roscoe.
