This recipe made A&S a hot spot for hot dogs ! Spyros, was my dad, a great dad, a man who had no formal education and yet gave me my first entrepreneurial lessons. At A & S we had the best hot dogs because we served them with homemade onions, "Hey Spyros, give me a dog with homemade onions" These were words echoed in the store on a daily basis. A recipe filled with memories that encompass a whole life filled with obstacles, happiness, failure and success. It might be a simple recipe but there'so much attached to this, it's the brick and mortar of what he accomplished. I dedicate this to my dad who passed away on May 3,2014 and I want to thank him for every lesson he has taught me.
