The Cowboy (left) is truly a fan favorite. Topped with bacon, grilled onions, Jack cheese, and BBQ Sauce. The toppings complement the savory flavor of the premium hot dog and make for a sweet and tangy treat.

You can never go wrong with The Classic. Served with dijon mustard, green relish, grilled onions, and sauerkraut, this twist on the classic hot dog experience is our staple gourmet hot dog and combines flavors of traditions old and new.

Newton is getting a new hot dog spot called The Savage Wiener

With a surplus of great places in the Boston area to grab a frankfurter, the competition to be the top dog is fierce. But a new pop-up in Newton Centre with a unique name is hoping their footlong will cut the mustard.

The Savage Wiener, owned by longtime Newton Centre resident Jim Lowenstern, plans to serve a variety of different hot dogs at 827 Beacon St., the home of Sandwich Works.

“Born out of a love for good food, our unique blend of spices coupled with carefully selected toppings make our hot dogs a unique twist on the classic hot dog experience,” Lowenstern wrote on The Savage Wiener’s website. “Our gourmet hot dogs are a nod to old-world craftsmanship, while embracing today’s state-of-the-art smokehouses. Each bite is a one-of-a-kind experience for your tastebuds.”

According to Eater Boston, Lowenstern originally wanted a naming convention built around the concept of an ‘ultimate hot dog,’ but a series of jokes led him to the Savage Wiener moniker, and he’s since embraced the off-color double entendres as part of his branding.

The pop-up will also offer “savage muffin tops,” which are in the pastry category, not the hot dog category, Lowenstern said. He had initially set out to create a concept around the “ultimate hot dog,” but while working with CPA firm Savage, Weiner, & Co. and hearing his in-car phone mispronounce the name, Lowenstern found new inspiration for his hot dog pop-up name.

The Savage Wiener officially opened for business with a launch party Thursday night, and more details about hours of operation going forward will be coming soon.

The Savage Wiener Launches in Newton Today

The ultimate hot dog has arrived in Newton Centre, courtesy of a new concept with a winning name. The Savage Wiener makes its debut today at Sandwich Works, celebrating its grand arrival with a launch party from 5:30-7:30 p.m., during which there will be free hot dog tastings.

Jim Lowenstern is the man behind The Savage Wiener, which will pop up indefinitely at 827 Beacon St. in Newton, with various types of hot dogs. Toppings include spicy mustard, secret relish, and onions.

“Anyone’s invited. Hopefully we’ll have enough to go around, and we’re basically doing hot dog flights. The premium, the steak, and the wagyu beef,” he said. “And people who come early will hopefully be able to sample all three, in the form of a hot dog flight, if you will.”

The pop-up will also offer “savage muffin tops,” which are in the pastry category, not the hot dog category, Lowenstern said. He had initially set out to create a concept around the “ultimate hot dog,” but while working with CPA firm Savage, Weiner, & Co. and hearing his in-car phone mispronounce the name, Lowenstern found new inspiration for his hot dog pop-up name.

The Savage Wiener specializes in gourmet-style dogs that are “born out of a love for good food,”according to the website. “Our unique blend of spices coupled with carefully selected toppings make our hot dogs a unique twist on the classic hot dog experience.”

For now, catch the ultimate hot dogs at Sandwich Works or order them by mail, and keep an eye out in the future should Lowenstern decide to convert Savage Wiener into a standalone concept.
