The Dog House Grill, a casual restaurant in the lower level of the Janzow Campus Center on Concordia University, Nebraska’s campus, will showcase a new menu during an on-site event on March 17 from 3 to 4 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. 

“This new menu features the top sellers from our previous two years in business, as well as some new items that have been in hot demand as specials during this academic year,” said Concordia’s Director of Dining Services Bryan Scherbarth. “The students helped to create some of the new recipes, and they are excited that the campus community as well as the general public will have an opportunity to experience The Dog House as another quality local dining option.”

The full menu from The Dog House Grill features American cuisine including cheeseburgers, sandwiches, wraps, wings with a variety of sauces, fries, milkshakes and smoothies.

The New Menu Party will feature samples of the establishment’s new food items including the Spicy Double Cross Burger made with jalapenos and a sriracha aioli, the Tuscan Pesto Chicken Sandwich with melted provolone cheese on a toasted brioche bun and other specialty entrées.

“I’m particularly proud of the new Chicken Cordon Bleu Wrap,” said Scherbarth. “This wrap was created by one of our student supervisors. It only contains five ingredients, but they are so well balanced and well prepared that it tastes like something you’ve never had before and have to have again. The best food is delicious and innovative without being complicated—that’s why this wrap in particular has become a campus favorite.”

Samples of this month’s featured milkshake, the Shamrock Shake, made with green mint chip ice cream, peppermint extract, whipped cream and a cherry, will also be available at the New Menu Party.

The Dog House Grill was open for service in the fall of 2013 by Chartwells, a leader in higher education dining services. It is open to students and the public from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. Friday, 5 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. Saturday and 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday.
