After many years of working for a printing company, Tony Passaro decided to follow his true dream and open a restaurant selling hot dogs, gyros, hamburgers and Italian beef. His first place was called Devil Dog and once the location on Route 59 became available, he decided to get creative and opened The Dogfather.
Tony derived the concept of The Dogfather from one of his all-time favorite movies, The Godfather. It became an instant hit in the town of Bartlett, IL, not just because it was a very clever, original idea but also because the food is delicious, the staff is especially welcoming and the atmosphere is superbly pleasant.
With colorful surroundings & tastefully selected black & white Italian photographs lining the walls, Tony Passaro has successfully accomplished his dream.
Everywhere he goes, he is referred to as “The Dogfather”!
On many occasions, Tony is seen preparing delicious dishes in his kitchen while welcoming his guests into the restaurant and making sure everyone is enjoying their food. He’s a favorite with kids, well liked among parents and respected within the community for all he does to support Bartlett and its charitable and youth organizations.
