Juni's Dog Haus Coming to Waterbury 

Side Dishes

Fast food is coming to Waterbury, Vermont style. A new drive-through window inside the Cabot Annex Store will serve up hot dogs and sliders prepared by the folks at Juniper’s Fare.

There won’t be any seats inside Juni’s Dog Haus, just a takeout counter. There or at the window, passersby can grab specialties such as breakfast sandwiches on homemade cheddar biscuits, smoked pork sliders and all-beef, kosher hot dogs. A Reuben dog comes topped with house-made sauerkraut; a banh-mi dog, with house-made kimchi.

“We’ll also have Chicago sliders, sort of cheesy-oniony-saucy-braised-beef patties” on onion-steamed buns, says Juniper’s Fare chef Martin Smith. Once the Dog Haus opens in March, other menu highlights will include “fry boats” slathered with a variety of toppings, such as taco-seasoned fries with salsa and lettuce.

The takeout spot is the third link in what is becoming a mini-chain for Juniper’s Fare, the Waterbury café run by Moretown-based Church of the Crucified One. In the fall, the group opened Juniper’s Fare Deli in Northfield, which serves “big, fat sandwiches” and hand-tossed pizzas, according to Smith.

“The Lord said to stretch out our tent pegs, and we are,” Smith says of the expansion.

How do you define "local" food?

  • It must be grown at a farm in my town.
  • I'd like it to come from within an hour's drive.
  • If it's grown in-state, that's fine.
  • If it's from New England, that counts!
  • I'll go with the USDA definition: if it's produced within 400 miles of my house, it's local.
