Berkley has seen a number of new eateries crop up over the last couple of years, and our favorite of these is Atomic Dawg. Run by Chef Gary Brenner, formerly of Café 317 in Royal Oak, Atomic Dawg offers creatively topped hot dogs and Corridor Sausage Co. sausages in a converted house with quaint ’50s decor and friendly service to match. Our favorites are the BBQ Hog Dawg, split and filled with pulled pork and coleslaw, and the Laikon, a Corridor lamb-and-fig sausage with tomato, red onion and cucumber salad and tzatziki sauce. Wash them down with a classic milkshake or a root beer float. A great place to take kids, or just revel in the nostalgia of being a kid yourself.
