Popular upmarket burger restaurant Hopdoddy is making some changes to the menu at all of its locations. In addition to the regular roster of burgers on the menu, beginning tomorrow, diners will also find a “shareables” section that includes Buffalo fries (topped with Buffalo sauce, blue cheese crumbles, chives, ranch) and Hot Honey and Sage Fries (sweet potato fries smothered with sweet-spicy honey and fried sage + rosemary), as well new milkshake flavors like S’mores and Strawberry Shortbread. The bar is also adding cocktails like a pineapple daiquiri.
May also marks a new Hopdoddy happy hour special that weds the restaurant’s namesake — hop (beer) and doddy (Scottish nickname for cows), with a deal that paris a monthly burger special with craft beers from across the country. The May burger is the Elvis Burger (Angus beef patty topped with American cheese, Applewood bacon, local IPA whipped peanut butter and sliced banana on a house baked egg bun), which will be paired with IPA specials. During happy hour (3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday), the burgers and pints cost $5, as do the new shareable plates.
