Updated: noon, April 17 Mayor Michael Neitzke and Paul and Mary Moll were the first customers at Dr. Dawg, 7700 W. Layton Ave., which opened at 11 a.m. Wednesday, April 17, in the former Hooters building. "I couldn't wait for a foot-long chili dog," Neitzke said.

Owner David Ross hoped to be open by Feb. 1; now he's aiming for the beginning of March.
The wait will be a little bit longer than hoped for those anxious to sink their teeth into a tasty Italian beef sandwich or Chicago-style hot dog while not having to leave the 76th Street shopping corridor. Dr. Dawg owner David Ross told Greenfield Patch he’s aiming to open his specialty restaurant at the beginning of March. Ross initially hoped his second Dr. Dawg location would open in the building formerly occupied by Hooters, 7700 W. Layton Ave., by Feb. 1. “It’s typical, behind schedule and over budget,” Ross said Wednesday. “But we’re very pleased that we’re in full swing. All the inspections have been done. All the drywall has been hung. We’ve got on a good roll, but it’s going to take the entire month of February to get everything …

The new hot dog restaurant will open in the former Hooters restaurant in early 2013, owner David Ross said.
Most dogs like being outside. Even Dr. Dawg. Davis Ross, owner of the Chicago-style hot dog and Italian beef restaurant set to open soon in the former Hooters building, 7700 W. Layton Ave., received approval to build a fenced-in, uncovered patio on the south side of the building. Ross, who told Greenfield Patch he hopes to open the new restaurant by Feb. 1, got the OK from the City of Greenfield’s Common Council on Tuesday to build the patio between the sidewalk on 76th Street and the front of the building. He did, however, have to scale back the original scope of the patio, which was initially 1,440-square-feet and could have held nine four-person tables as well as a few benches. The new patio is expected to accommodate as many as six …

Dr. Dawg, a Chicago-style hot dog restaurant, will replace Hooters, which was a Greenfield mainstay for 15 years at one of the busiest shopping corridors in the Milwaukee area.
Not a fan of chicken wings? Maybe Chicago-style hot dogs are more your style. With the scantily clad waitresses of Hooters, 7700 W. Layton Ave., now a thing of the past, Dr. Dawg has pounced on the vacant restaurant like a puppy on a new toy. David Ross, owner of Dr. Dawg, is making plans to open his second restaurant, likely around Jan. 1, 2013, in the vacant Hooters restaurant. Dr. Dawg is a family-style, fast-casual restaurant concept with a theme based on the Chicago-style hot dog and Italian ‘beef-stand’ genre. The menu, however, isn’t limited to just dogs, dogs and more dogs. Standard comfort food is joined by healthier items that can appeal to health-conscious consumers, such as gluten-free, trans fat-free and many all-natural items…
