Andrew Braverman is extremely confident in his family's business. "I'll match our Italian beef sandwich and hot dogs up against anybody in the city," he boasts.
The Dogout opened three years ago on Waukegan Road in Bannockburn and has been attracting a wide variety of customers ever since.
"We do our best to know everybody by name. It's the way it's always been," said Braverman, who recently moved back home to help his parents with the business.
His dad opens every morning, his mom is behind the counter during the day and he jumps in during the rush hours--a casual family routine that Braverman says works well in Bannockburn.
