Located in Gardnerville, Nevada, Hamdogs has been feeding locals and travelers in the Northern Nevada Carson Tahoe area 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for nearly 20 years now.
Besides killer breakfasts and tasty lunches, our Santa Maria style, open-pit, “live” red oak BBQ has earned us the reputation for the best tasting grilled meats this side of the US. At Hamdogs, we believe quality shouldn’t have to sacrifice for quantity, we guarantee you’ve never had this much high quality meat in one sitting. We source the best ingredients available and even the wood we cook over is shipped all the way from the other side of the US.
Our head chef comes from a lineage of Chefs originally responsible for perfecting the Santa Maria style which requires meticulously adjusting the grill and the flames to roast high quality cuts over open flame as opposed to the much easier (and more forgiving) style of BBQ we’re all familiar with which uses hot coals or embers.
Others have copied us, more will try, but when you want a real meal, with real flavor, cooked with real ingredients, and really reasonably priced, come eat where everyone eats, Hamdogs!
