Who says late November is only a time for turkey? Not us, that’s for sure. That’s why Franktuary is officially declaring Tuesday November 24 to be “Franksgiving Day.” Purchasers of a Locavore will be offered a second for free. It’s just our way of saying “franks a lot” to you, our lovely customers.

The Locavore, an organic, grass-finished all-beef frankfurter, debuted on our menu in July. Since then customers have referred to it as “the filet mignon of hot dogs” and “the best hot dog you will ever eat.” While these are undoubtedly true statements, the benefits of consuming a Locavore go far beyond extraordinary flavor. Free of antibiotics and hormones, organic, grass-finished beef offers a perfectly balanced ratio of Omega 3 and Omega 6 essential fatty acids, an inflammation-fighting health benefit more commonly associated with wild-caught seafood. As the name suggests, the Locavore is produced from start to finish in the Pittsburgh region, traveling only 60 miles from Ron Gargasz Organic Farm in Volant, PA to Franktuary in Pittsburgh.

Just an FYI, after Franksgiving, there’s another popular holiday later in the week. We’ll be closed Wednesday November 25 through Friday November 27 in observance of Thanksgiving.
