Pronto Pup’s yellow stands are everywhere at the Kansas State Fair – they’re good.
The Pronto Pup was sold and is now called Salmon River Pronto Pup. Ate there today while Sam, Trudy and I were returning from the Oregon State Bar_B-Q competition at the Chinook Winds Casino in Lincoln City. Pronto Pups were excellent(much more moist than the usual corn dog coating) and the pronto pup mix was sold in the store. The place is well worth a stop if you are driving from Portland to Lincoln City. And it is across the street from the Otis Cafe, a roadfood reviewed restaurant by the Sterns and also reviewed by the NY Times.
Lemme see, I think I can raise Uncle Vic by $5.
I’ve been trying to find some pics on the web, to get a better idea of what I’m bidding on, but to no avail. The current owners paid just $5000 for the place.
I’ve been fascinated by the little burg of Cistern, TX, in the rolling Texas Hill Country, which isn’t for sale, alas. They have a sausage company there that makes a great sausage, but they don’t have a Pronto Pup!
BTW, my offer is conditioned upon all the equipment in the Pronto Pup being in working order and recipes included.
Well, since I see no reserve, I bid 50 bucks…. Bout all I can afford at this time…. But if the sale is approved, the town name of Otis (Reminds me of the drinking fella on the Andy Griffith Show, and then on the other hand, an Elevator Company) would have to be changed… Not sure on the name, but if you accept my $50 dollar bid, I’m quite sure fellow roadfooder’s would help me come up with a new name…
The corn dog stand is called "Pronto Pup Corn Dogs". Anybody eaten there?
OTIS, ORE. – The "For Sale" sign is back up on the tiny Coast Range town of Otis. Five years ago, the idea of selling Otis put this town on the national map. Almost overnight came an offer out of California for the $3 million asking price. The "Today Show" wanted to feature Otis, and rumors flew that Clint Eastwood or Arnold Schwarzenegger were ready to deal for the town. Alas, the fanfare faded. Rumors about Hollywood stars turned out to be just that and the California buyer disappeared.
However, the owner of the land Otis sits on, Vivian Lematta, says she wants to try again.
Otis includes the Otis Cafe, a market, a corn dog joint, the post office, a woodcarving outlet, two houses, a big barn, a community club and an all-purpose building.
Lematta is again asking for $3 million for the town.
