“It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood... and on our outdoor porch! After a long winter that turned into a chilly spring, the sun is finally shining and we can hear the birds chirping. What better way to celebrate the return of warmer weather than by enjoying a relaxing meal on our outdoor porch! From hand-crafted cocktails to our selection of seasonal specials, we have that something special to help kick off al fresco dining season. ”

“Just how did fries end up on the sandwich? According to Joe’s cousin John DiPriter: "One winter, a fella drove in with a load of potatoes. He brought a few of 'em over to the restaurant to see if they were frozen. I fried the potatoes on our grill and they looked pretty good. A few of our customers asked for them, so I put the potatoes on their sandwiches.” Simple!”

“The Original Hot Dog Shop founded by Syd & Moe Simon opened in the shadows of Forbes Field during the Pittsburgh Pirates’ unforgettable, 1960 World Series Championship season. It was thought, “where would a better place be than outside of a ballpark to open a hot dog and burger stand?””
