“Auch due lieber!” The Dog Haus Biergarten in Menifee is a great place to have a craft beer and a signature hot dog after a hard days’ work. A cross between a fast food place and a sit-down restaurant at 30080 Haun Road in Menifee, the Dog Haus becomes a delightful break from the routine fast food take out fare.
The family restaurant, owned by millennial brother and sister team Tanya and Amir Tabrizizadeh, with its signature hot dogs, sausages and hamburgers and large variety of craft beers, provides fast and friendly service to young and old who find their way to the unique franchise restaurant.
Children, parents and grandparents will find every signature hot dog, sausage or hamburger grilled to perfection and placed on and a sweet Hawaiian bread roll. There are seven each of hot dog, sausage and hamburger builds to choose from, or if the customer chooses to do so, the opportunity build their own. The price is only $5.99 each for Haus Dog builds and $7.49 each for Haus Sausages and Haus Burgers.
Want some fries, Tater Tots and a fountain drink? Add $3.49 for any of the combo builds. For the children with the smaller appetites they can enjoy any two signature sliders and a fountain drink for $5.99. The Dog Haus also offers other upgrades, making almost every meal under $10. Where else can you find such a deal?
When I ordered the signature Das Brat, I could hardly wait to taste the bratwurst, caramelized onions, whole-grain mustard aioli and sauerkraut I heard sizzling on the grill. My table neighbors, Laura Walker and Cassie Giddings from Murrieta were “oohing and ahhing” at their signature Love Boat Tater Tots, Haus chili, Haus slaw and a cardboard boat of what looked like “The Fonz,” a spicy Italian sausage, pastrami and melted mozzarella cheese.
“I just love coleslaw.” said Walker. “This is soooo good. Oh. My gosh. This is so unique, so exciting it has all kinds of flavors.”
At another table, Kyle McBribe and Edgar Santiago from the Nuevo area had just downed craft beers and were finishing up a signature Little Mule, a unique hamburger build with cotija cheese, white American cheese, pickled jalapenos, chipotle aioli – a spicy treat – with a fried egg to top it all off.
“That’s good stuff,” said Santiago who was there for the first time. “I love this place.”
Then the words “Order up!” came from the kitchen where cook Kim Sierra has just made up my anxiously awaited Das Brat. The German in me came out as I tasted the first bite, “Das schmeckt gut,” ohh it was so good. The mildly seasoned sausage, sweet onions and sauerkraut just melted in my mouth.
When I asked Amir what was put into the sausage that made it taste so good he said, “It’s a secret.” The premium meat and its ingredients are made up at Dog Haus Biergarten corporate headquarters in Pasadena along with the Hawaiian buns served with every dog, sausage and burger. “Can’t give you that,” said Amir, adding that people can get a sausage build to take out. The restaurant does offer a takeout menu but does not cater.
Adults and children with a sweet tooth can also find ice cream treats with shakes, floats, soft serve cones or cups.
Yet the brother and sister, who also manage two Denney’s restaurants in Murrieta, have provided some food services to the local school districts on special occasions.
“We are getting more involved in the community,” said Tanya.
The Dog Haus Biergarten opened only six months ago, and after the Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting, has seen customer traffic continue to grow.
The evenings often see a full house, and in good weather their outdoor lighted patio quickly fills up. A special attraction to the adult crowd are the 14 on tap craft beers offered along with a number of canned craft beers. Some of the most popular craft beers are from the Garage Brewery in Temecula and the Mason Jar Brewery in Menifee.
“We use local craft beer brewers,” said Tanya.
You can’t find a better place for this new concept in hot dog and sausage meals then the Dog Haus Biergarten in Menifee. Das Gut!
