Let’s Be Frank sells “dogs gone good”: flavor-filled hot dogs made from pasture-raised livestock. Compared to your average frank, these dogs are better for the animals, better for the rancher, better for the environment and better for you. Best of all, they’re sizzled to perfection and absolutely delicious. Today’s Groupon gets you two of these juicy dogs for just 6 bucks any day of the week (compared to the normal price tag of $9.90 and the $8 Tuesday special).
This Marina hot dog venue offers five kinds of dogs, all free from nitrates, hormones, and antibiotics:
- The Frank Dog is made of premium cuts from California-raised cattle and organic spices. It’s lower in fat, calories and sodium and richer in Omega 3 fatty acids than a standard hot-dog.
- The Brat Dog is filled with porky flavor and made from humanely raised pigs and a savory blend of spices.
- The “Hot” Dog contains humanely raised pork sausage blended with garlic, herbs, spices, and smoky Spanish paprika.
- The Bird Dog is plump and juicy, made from free-roaming turkeys in the Sierra foothills.
- The “Not” Dog is the vegetarian Italian-style sausage alternative to a meaty frank.
Spice up any dog with Let’s Be Frank’s signature Devil Sauce: spicy pickled pepper relish.
Founders Sue Moore and Larry Bain started Let’s Be Frank with their vision for a healthier fast-food alternative to the traditional fat-filled dog. They decided to “return the much-demanded hot dog to its rightful position: an icon for a healthy food system.” The company supports the small number of family farmers and ranchers who raise their animals on pasture in humane conditions. Moore and Bain believe in supporting local products and sustainable food systems.
But it’s not all about the grass-fed animals and your body’s much-needed nutrients—Let’s Be Frank is juicing with hot-dog fun from the moment you walk in. UrbanDaddy.com describes the retro shop: > * Approaching the futuristic eight-seat eatery, you’ll feel like you’re actually entering a giant hot dog. The awning is rounded and wiener shaped, and every outside inch of the tiny space is decked out in some form of red or yellow. – UrbanDaddy.com
