A Sneak Preview of Scotch & Sausage, Which Opens Today in Oak Lawn (Photos)

Categories: First Look

After months of taunting Oak Lawn with its contemporary design and one-two punch of a name, Scotch & Sausage (2808 Oak Lawn Ave.) finally opens its doors today at 11 a.m. The causal restaurant and beer garden offers more than 20 varieties of sausage "sandwiches" (which are basically like giant, more complex hot dogs) for up to $8. The sausages are all either created in house or made locally, according to the restaurants recipes, and include the basics; pork, beef, chicken and vegan options. But there's also some slightly more adventurous meats like venison, quail and antelope.

The menu also offers hand cut fries, scotch eggs and plenty of dipping sauces to choose from. As for the "Scotch" part of the name, there are more than 100 varieties of whiskeys and scotches up for grabs, and plenty of beer on draft.

Chef Trevor Ball is in charge of the kitchen, he's got pedigree: he's the grandson of Karl Kuby, who founded Kuby's Sausage House in 1961. You also might recognize Ball from his appearance on Guy's Grocery Games last month.

Scotch and Sausage will be open until 3 a.m. on Thursday nights, until 4 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights and until midnight the rest of the week.

All these penis jokes must be a man thing. It never crossed my mind. I was spending my time wondering if they have a scotch for someone who doesn't like scotch.


While living in China from 2004 to 2012, I started serving communion at Saturday night dinners using Scotch and Chocolate. I serve Cardhu single malt neet and Ghirardelli Intense Dark. Now living in deep east texas, I will drop by and sample the food... and a dram of scotch...see ya'll soon.

I saw this place a few months ago and was trying to remember the name and the only thing I could come up with was Wieners and Whiskey.  Guess I wasnt too far off.


the 8th grader in me cannot stop giggling about a guy named ball running the kitchen at a place that specializes in sausage. 


I enthusiastically approve of the whole concept, and I will hopefully soon be able to evaluate the execution (read "drink their whiskey and eat their sausage").

Get in my belly.

Going for lunch today. Hope it's not a ear fuck like Campuzano.


@The_triplefake_Brandon_Eley  Dude, my brain went into a dick joke overload when I saw the name of this place and the pics.  Even stronger than in 2nd grade when someone had a ding dong in their packed lunch. I guess we men truly are hardwired to always have a dick joke or a fart joke in the on deck circle. Somebody come pull my finger.
