John Bradbury and co-owners Jason Koperniak, Christopher St. Cyr, and Mitchell Bresett purchased the building and equipment, and have reopened the space that used to be The Hot Dog Ranch located at 310 State Street in North Adams.

People in North Adams have been waiting and wondering when a business would open at the old Hot Dog Ranch. They are now The Ranch. They officially opened their doors on Thursday the 27th. 

 As of Thursday, January 27th, When I drove by The Ranch on the 27th, the large "opening soon” banner that had been hung on the building was now gone and there were all kinds of people in the establishment enjoying themselves. 

Much of the building and food will remain the same. The space still will have the sports feel to it, and if you have missed your favorite staff who used to work at the Hot Dog Ranch, some of the same staff will be working at The Ranch now. The Ranch will feature a full bar, and soon will offer keno. 

Some favorite foods are still there like onions, sauerkraut, mustard, and ketchup, there are extra topping choices on the menu too, like beef chili sauce, warm cheese sauce, and hot pepper relish, also added is chili, chowder, and chicken wings. 

I guess it has been gangbusters over at The Ranch. On their Facebook page, I found this posted. 

“We are currently sold out of dogs & onion rings! They will be available tonight for dinner” 

Guess folks have been missing their mini dogs and onion rings!

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
