Bill

I agree.  I think its one of those things that is worth the extra effort and good fries can elevate the hot dogs and burgers that are served

          Not trying to get on anyone's case here but for GOD'S SAKE identify yourself as a ROAD-FOODER when you show up. It's a badge of honer wear it with pride!

          Of course if your Buddy Roadhouse you'll show up and he will ask if you sell Italian food at a BBQ stand, and the owner with out looking up reply's no sorry buddy, no realizing who it is for an instant. True story happened just last week.
          LOL

          Tell them your a Road Food person and the owner may just invite you into the kitchen and offer you a taste of everything in the house. I know I do, 99% of the time.

                  5 years.  where has the time gone?  Seems like it was yesturday that I took over this little run down hot dogstand.  It's still  run down but the food is much better.

                  looking forward to the next 5 years.

                      Of course it should be called America's Sauce"
