Hot Doug's: the Movie - Doug with sign

Random Media and Markos Films take audiences on a mouthwatering, culinary journey with HOT DOUG’S: the MOVIE, coming to DVD, Digital and VOD, beginning June 25, 2019. Inspired by chef Doug Sohn’s love of “encased meats” and his desire to create a sausage superstore, HOT DOUG’S: the MOVIE follows Sohn on a journey that takes him from being at the top of his game to a decision to close his restaurant at the height of its popularity after 13 years of business.

Hot Doug’s opened in 2001 and quickly became a phenomenon, ushering in the era of gourmet-casual dining and attracting fans from around the world, including Anthony Bourdain, who included it as "one of the 13 places to eat before you die.’’ Love for Doug and his crew, who operated like family, made the restaurant an institution, with hungry fans waiting in line for hours to try culinary delicacies that transcended the average hot dog, made with ingredients including foie gras, venison, curry pork, and escargot, bearing names like "The Joe Strummer," "The Anna Kendrick," and "The Elvis." HOT DOUG’S: the MOVIE is the remarkably delightful story of a special place that will leave you hungry for more.
