The dogs were grilled on a flat stainless steel ''griddle'', it was heated by gas, you could walk by the front window and watch everything going on in the grill area, sort of a poor mans ''table in the kitchen''

Chocolate milk....the finer things in life!
They must've used another brand of dogs in last few years....seems the Dubugue packing plant went through lots of turmoil and buyouts,and closed in 2000,,,was leveled in 2006 for a shopping center.
Anyone work there last few years know which brand the purchased?

Brian, I go to Millers Meats every saturday, they made the chili sauce for the shop, they still make it and sell it, I'll ask Jim what kind of dogs they used, I think they still sell Dubuque dogs

I always ''liked'' when you ran your hand under the booths or counters and the texture of the gum build up felt like the moon looked

Brian, checked w/ Jim at Millers, for the last 5 yrs they used Kunzler ''grill franks'' hot dogs, they also used a Srtoehmann's bun which was steamed and of course topped w/ that world famous sauce

WOW thanks!
The first time I took my wife she actually asked for a menu! Then she ordered soup and coffee?!?! She was turned off by the less than clean spoon and the lipstick on her cup,,,LOL...from that point forward she ordered her coke in a new styrofoam cup,and plastic ware...
Still there is nothing like the place.I live now in Lakeland FL and wish we had a place like that.

Main St. Progress slow? Butler Downtown Revitalization Committee?
PLEASE HELP!
I work on Main Street Butler Pennsylvania and read an article appearing in the Butler Eagle, Thursday, November 15, 2007 Titled “Main St. Progress Slow” by Ed Biller, Eagle Staff Writer.
I know the committee has been working for four plus years and I am wondering what the hold up is?
The article states $160,000 allocated to the city but monies cannot be released until two surveys are completed.
The first survey is seeking input from business and property owners. I work on Main Street and have never seen a survey. Who developed the survey? What are the questions being addressed? How was it distributed and to who? What does Mayor Maggie Stock mean when quoted as saying,“It’s the responsibility to make the city of Butler as good as it can be” and “ It’s not something ‘they’ do. We do it. DO WHAT?
Who are the people who run this committee what do their titles mean and how can they be contacted? I hear through the grapevine they have already been accepted so does this mean there was a survey and now they need another? Was the survey distributed to all downtown business and property owners or just a select few? Can the public taxpayers see these reports and if so where are they located?
If you know any of the above answers or have links to sites on the Internet addressing BUTLER DOWNTOWN REVITALIZATION COMMITTEE
Under Topix Forum title:
Main St. Progress slow? Butler Downtown Revitalization Committee?
Thanks for your time

Brian,
I grew up in Tarentum,Pa. and it was always a very special treat to go to Butler for hot dogs. Never have had any like them since. I now live in Vero Beach, Fl. We have 2 "copy cat" recipes that I would be willing to share. There is also a "copy cat restaurant" in Butler selling hot dogs, Isaly's ham bbq's and strip district type fish sandwiches all good but not quite the real thing. Would be fun talking if possible.

Is there anywhere to get Saxonburg bologna? Especially with garlic??
Before 9-11 I used to take it overseas with me. It is amazing how many carry-on's I could get on the plane [along with sereval small children] with
a pay-off of one ring of Saxonburg Bologna!
WHile I'm on the food bender - when did it become 'traditional' to put french fries in a salld??? Wasn't THAT a Pittsburgh thing?
How was the parade?

In regard to "saxonburg bologna" the only place that i have been able to find the good saxonburg bologna is at Friedman's grocery stores. Not sure if that helps you much where you are at now though. good luck!

Millers also makes and sells the gravy now,I think when it was made on site they just used all of the excess grease from cooking and added flour,the gravy would be hot but after it would coagulate I'm not sure it could still be considered gravy
