Logan Square cult favorite hot dog stand Redhot Ranch announced today that they were planning a second location in Lakeview, set to open this fall. The new location will be bigger, boast an expanded menu that will include burgers and will provide space for parking.

Redeye reports:

Located at 3055 N. Ashland Ave., the second location will sell the same Depression Dogs,Vienna hot dogs wrapped with fries, and French-fried shrimp as the Logan Square original and 35th Street Red Hots, its sibling restaurant in Bridgeport. In addition, the larger space will permit a menu expansion that will include hamburgers in the style of West Coast chain In-N-Out Burger.

Business at the original location has doubled over the last six months, prompting the expansion. In addition, the same owner also owns Weiner's Circle and is trying to license the concept across the country.
