Ain't Nothin' But A Hound Dog

The 3rd version of the Rock 'n Roll Burger Co. menu launched on Monday 2nd March 2015. It's only been one year since the Rock 'n Roll Burger Co. concept was first launched but it's evolved so much since then. In the third incarnation we say hello to a brand new selection of hot dogs, Hound Dogs to be precise.
All of the eight Hound Dogs have been carefully put together to reflect the Spring and Summer weather, a different selection will be launched after the summer to reflect the colder and cosier seasons. This choice of eight hit dogs includes 12 inch Cumberland sausages, Vegetarian Quorn® sausages and Vegan Linda McCartney® sausages. the idea being that everyone will find one they like!
