America’s Top Dog is no longer on top. This hot dog spot serving both regional-themed and build-it-yourself hot dogs served its last dog in December. Owner Jeff Brosman confirmed today that the restaurant closed due to the economy. He said, “We did really well in the beginning but then… business was not good.”
America’s Top Dog set up shop on Chamblee Tucker Road in Fall 2010, earning praise from Dining Team member Jon Watson. Brossman later opened a second location on Satellite Blvd in Duluth and sold the original location, which closed last November.
America’s Top Dog was included on Jon Watson’s list of the top 5 hot dogs in the city. In the same poll, readers chose it as their 6th best hot dog on Best of the Big A.
