as I went by the place yesterday I noticed there are two panels of glass above the doors that are etched with the hot dog shop motto, hopefully somebody will remove them and give them a home before they tear down the building

I am over 50 yrs. old and remember going to the Hot Dog Shop every Sunday after church. With 5 in our family at that time....it was affordable to feed lunch to the family, visit with other customers and watch the one waitress that had the "drawn on" eyebrows!!! She Always looked surprised!!!!!

My famil and I used to go there after church, too. I remember
that waitress. Her name was Mary.
She was there forever! I can still hear her yelling orders to
the guys up front. "Two hots! Two
hots!"

i remember the rats in the bathroom in the mornings before they would head out to the grill area for lunch. after awhile, I just considered them "regulars"

The name of the waitress with "drawn on" eyebrows was Vivian, not Mary. Mary was there for a long time too; but, not as long as Vivian.

I remember the drawn on brows. I wonder how many of those ladies were there until closing?

The place remains my best memory of Butler!

We would go there after 8th grade basketball games in 1948. Even us kids from Chicora liked the dogs. 7 for $1.00?

When I first went as a kid, hot dogs were 15 cents apiece, 2 for a quarter.
