John, I actually was just there one week ago on saturday and asked the girl who served me and she said they were fried. I meant to post that last week, just havent had time. I went to pick up Hot Dog Johnnys dogs, Schmalz’s, at Fredericos two days ago on Saturday and I arrived exactly five minutes late. They closed at six and I got there at six o five. I was so dissapointed so im gonna head there earlier next weekend to pick them up. And like you said, they are the same dogs Hot Dog Johnnys uses right? While in the area I stopped in Kenilworth to go to charlies but then my friend and I had an uncontrollable craving for white castle so we jumped on 22 to union and that was the end of that. When you go to Johnnys this week let me know how you liked it this time and buy a whole pickel, sliced. They are excellent. Take care.
