CALERA – Calera residents will soon have a new restaurant to visit when 3D-Dogs opens June 10 in the former Donna’s Café building.

The restaurant is the fifth opened by owners Sean and Jennifer DeSmet.

“We opened our first location in Billingsley in 2003, moved the business a few years later to Prattville, then Maplesville,” Sean DeSmet said. “Due to problems with the building in Maplesville, we opened our Clanton location last July. We’ll open our Calera location June 10 and have a big grand opening a couple of weeks later.”

Menu items include hot dogs, polish sausage dogs, hand pressed burgers, Phillies, gyros, BLT, salads, kids meals, fries, tater tots, onion rings and fried pickles. Sandwiches are served on a classic bun or grilled sourdough.

“Our Philly Cheese Steak is 6 inches of pure awesometicity, it’s a favorite among our customers,” Sean DeSmet said. “Providing quality food keeps our customers coming back. If you can’t find something you want to eat on the menu, chances are you just aren’t hungry.”

A hot bar will be available for customers who need to grab a bite on the run. The menu offers weekday specials: Burger Monday, 2 for Tuesday, Philly Friday. Seniors, active military and safety personnel will receive a dine-in discount.

Restaurant hours are Monday-Friday 10 a.m. – 9 p.m. A full course breakfast (pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, grits, homemade biscuits) will be offered on Saturdays and Sundays starting at 7 a.m. Call in your order to save time at 668-1811.
