Short Leash Hot Dogs on Central Has Closed

It was a short run for Short Leash Hot Dogs at 130 N. Central Avenue. After just a few months, the third location of the well-loved hot dog restaurant has shuttered. The owners made the announcement via a Facebook post on Monday afternoon.

The restaurant opened in November 2015 and, in addition to serving breakfast and lunch, provided food for Valley Bar, which is located in the basement of the same downtown Phoenix building. Short Leash will continue to provide food for the bar for the next week and a half, although the restaurant is no longer open for business. 

In addition to operating two food trucks, Short Leash Hot Dogs has two other restaurants — one on Roosevelt Row and another at Union at Biltmore Fashion Park — as well as Rollover Doughnuts at 10 West Vernon.
