John, Ive asked people at Hot Dog Johnnys and they have told me they were fried. Maybe they tell different things to different people to keep it secret, who knows. Also my parents who live in this area since the early seventies have told me they asked long ago and were told they were fried. My parents grew up right near Rutts and used to frequent it when they were just starting to drive. My dad said it was big hangout for them(being kids then) and everyone used to park and hang out and show off there cars. He said the reason for the many no littering signs( which is obvious)is when they were young EVERYONE threw theyre garbage off the side. I love how clearly outdated the signs are with a fine of 50$ haha. He said before the road below was completed they used to drag race there too. Ahh, I wish as a kid I grew up in that time period rather than now. Anyway I love history of old places like that so I thought id share some. What do you think of Tobys Cups dogs? I think they deserve to be on the map just for the unique little stand they sell out of. One last thing, can you give me some info on how to order Schmalz’s hot dogs that Hot Dog Johnnys uses? Thanks, Your the hotdog King!
