The restaurant has been under construction for nearly six months but is finally set to open in the former Hooters building in Greenfield.
On April 8, just after midnight, a witness called police to report a vehicle had sat through an entire cycle of lights without moving at 76th Street and West Layton Avenue.

Most dogs like being outside. Even Dr. Dawg. Davis Ross, owner of the Chicago-style hot dog and Italian beef restaurant set to open soon in the former Hooters building, 7700 W. Layton Ave., received approval to build a fenced-in, uncovered patio on the south side of the building. Ross, who told Greenfield Patch he hopes to open the new restaurant by Feb. 1, got the OK from the City of Greenfield’s Common Council on Tuesday to build the patio between the sidewalk on 76th Street and the front of the building. He did, however, have to scale back the original scope of the patio, which was initially 1,440-square-feet and could have held nine four-person tables as well as a few benches. The new patio is expected to accommodate as many as six …
