Popular upmarket burger restaurant Hopdoddy is making some changes to the menu at all its locations. In addition to the regular roster of burgers, 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 and rosemary), as well as 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 namesakes — hop (beer) and doddy (Scottish nickname for cows) — in a deal that pairs 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 to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday), the burgers and pints cost $5, as do the new shareable plates.
