about us

Our Story

Every city has its culinary staples, and here in Lexington, we felt it was high time the hot dog got its due. Boonedogs was conceived from a simple yet profound desire: to elevate a food item that often finds itself at the bottom of the menu.

Co-founded by Tim and Jessica Jones, and Hilary and Charlotte Boone, Boonedogs is more than just a restaurant—it’s a culinary canvas where creativity knows no bounds.

Our Philosophy

We really like taking items on menus that are overlooked and get really creative with it. Turn it into something unexpected and change people’s minds about what a hot dog can be.

This philosophy has led us to reimagine the hot dog, transforming it from a simple snack into a gourmet experience. 

More Than Just Food

While our gourmet hot dogs are the stars of the show, Boonedogs offers much more. Our outdoor area is a welcoming space for families and friends to gather, complete with games like cornhole and plenty of seating.
