A local restaurant is raising eyebrows by raising its prices to $20 for a hot dog.

About two weeks ago, Bison Jack's in Middleton began charging $20 plus tax for all its meals. Most of their bison dog specials were previously priced at about $8.

The restaurant is a "pilot" store for a company based in Denver, and the first in the country. It opened a little more than a year ago. A local staffer tells NBC 15 the store is not closing, but when we went inside Friday none of the food or toppings were already prepared and we did not see any other customers.

A spokesperson for the company contacted NBC 15 promising more information. We will update this story as soon as we receive it.
