Daddy’s Dogs, the late night gourmet hot dog food cart from owner Sean “Big Daddy” Porter in 2015, is opening a new brick-and-mortar location in Printers Alley this weekend.

The new location at 205 Printers Alley is the second permanent home for Daddy’s Dogs — Porter opened his first brick-and-mortar shop in The Nations in late 2017.

Since first opening, Porter quickly made a name for himself around town with his popular hot dog cart. The straightforward menu of 100% all-beef specialty dogs and sides like loaded tots, chili, slaw, or chips is available all day, with a streamlined late night hot dog menu. There is also a vegan hot dog option available.

Before opening Daddy’s Dogs, Porter spent many years touring the world with Cage the Elephant, Elle King, Kris Allen, Mat Kearney and others.

During grand opening weekend March 29-31, Daddy’s Dogs Printers Alley will be open Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. During grand opening festivities, they’ll be hosting a giveaway of free hot dogs for a year.

Starting April 1, hours will be Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Thursday and Friday, 9 p.m. to 3 a.m., and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. They will be closed Sundays.
