    No one seems to know. The speculation from others seems to say that price and inconsistent product might have done them in. I would add that the location didn't help.

      I always thought it was good but the problem with doing that kind of dog with all those different toppings is that first of all keeping product fresh and second is that its not as easy as you think to train people to make all those dogs with just the right amounts and not make them  a mess. It prob was really tough after his partner bailed.  So  they could maintain top quality at all times, Matt would have to be there Open to close almost all the time!

          First off I would like to thank everyone for their patronage, and it was my pleasure serving all of you. That being said, the one simple fact that we closed, was the rent was high, and lunch business in the beginning of the week just slowed down to much..weekends were still brisk, just not enough to carry the rest of the week..

          I felt our product was consistent, and all our toppings were fresh, and yes I was there most days from open to close, but truth is I liked being there and wouldn't have it any other way. So again thanks to everyone, and it was really special meeting and getting to know you.  You never know when you may see Amazing open again, but not soon that I can tell you. I hope to frequent some other establishments, and hopefully gey on some of these hot dog tours..

          Thanks
          Matt

            Hello Matt ,

            We do hope you can make the next Jersey Hot Dog Tour scheduled for Sept . It was a pleasure having your Amazing Verona location on the tour a few years ago and it was a big hit !!
            Good luck in future endeavors and hope to see Amazing back sometime soon!!
