Praise the sausage gods, Luscher's Red Hots finally opens today at 11 a.m. Deep Ellum's newest counter-service restaurant is brought to you by The Grape chef-owner Brian Luscher, who's putting his sausage-making skills to good use here: The menu includes eight different handmade sausage iterations, from a classically topped Chicago-style dog to a Wisconsin brat, plus a breakfast sandwich with country sausage. Don't sleep on the Wagyu Italian beef sandwich with spicy housemade giardiniera, or there's also a version made with overnight Berkshire roasted pork; Italian sausage can be added to either for a meaty one-two punch. (There's also an excellent burger, but that's a story for another day.)

Off-Site Kitchen fans will find the fries OSK-ish in the best possible way, and there are also crispy hand-battered onion rings, potato salad, and chili made (gasp) Northerner-style with beans. Rounding out the offerings is a selection of local canned beers, as well as one on tap from Chicago brewery Goose Island, and locally made popsicles and ice cream bars. Worth pointing out: a typical meal for two clocks in at under $30.
