A longtime University of Arizona-area bistro has called it quits, opening the door for an innovative hot dog purveyor with a penchant for flipping eggs.

Joel’s Bistro ended a decade of residence at Geronimo Plaza, 806 E. University Blvd., on Aug. 19, when owner Joel Suire sold the business. The new owners spent a couple days last week cleaning up before reopening the restaurant last Friday as Mutts, a gourmet hot dog and breakfast joint.

Executive chef/GM Michael Wilson said he won’t introduce the hot dog menu until Wednesday.

But it will include more than 20 signature hot dogs and sausages, using all-beef hot dogs and meats imported from Wisconsin. The menu includes the classic Chicago dog, brats, a chilidog and Wilson’s rendition of a Sonoran hot dog.

Hot dogs run $3 to $5.50. Breakfast averages $6.

Mutts is open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily until Wednesday, when it will roll out the hot dog menu and its regular hours — from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.
