Dining Notes: Second Charleston's fires up the grill


Chicago Dawg House — a Cubs-themed hot dog joint with Chicago-style grub — is moving from its west Omaha location to Midtown Crossing.

The restaurant will be in the bay formerly occupied by Blanc Burgers.

Kelly and Regina Keegan purchased Chicago Dawg House in March 2012. It's currently located near 108th Street and West Maple Road. The Keegans are hoping for more foot traffic at the new location.

The restaurant serves Italian beef hot dogs on steamed poppy seed buns and Italian beef sandwiches on Gonnella rolls, both brought to Omaha from Chicago.

The new Midtown location will be larger than the current location, with triple the amount of seating, including a dugout-style seating area and stadium seats that are from Wrigley Field in Chicago and Omaha's Rosenblatt Stadium. The decor will feature a Chicago Cubs theme.

"When the Cubs win, the 'W' flag goes up," Kelly Keegan said in a press release.

Kelly Keegan is an Omaha native. The Keegans hope to have the Midtown Crossing restaurant open by Oct. 1. The Chicago Dawg House "Weiner Wagon" will be at Midtown Crossing events throughout the summer.
