Personal Notes:
Coney Island Hot Dog Shops was grown in New Castle, PA as a way to help the Greek Community to bring family from Greece to America for legal immigration. When Clay and Tessa were young they could buy 10 dogs for a dollar. The waiter would line up the hot dogs in the buns all the way up his arms. It was quite entertaining to see how these hard working men did their jobs. The homemade French fries were delicious as well. Note: to make the crisp fries, blanch in 325 oil for 2-3 min. Cool and then fry in 375 oil until crisp, Drain salt and serve.
