OK, so it’s not a restaurant but the hot dog cart at the Home Depot was always a quick, dependable snack. Not any more. I know the owner passed away last year, and apparently he took the recipe with him.
Stopped there today. The hot dog was extremely rubbery, I assume it was left over from yesterday. The bun was stale and the bottom half of it was hard, I assume it was left over from last week. The condiments (tomato, pickle) have gotten smaller. And I’m pretty sure that in the last 18 months that dog has gone from $1.75 to $2.75.
I give that hot dog stand three more months, at best, before it joins the former owner.
