Speed's Thurs 9/13?

  • 8

I work during every work day out in the burbs, but am off tomorrow because of the Jewish holiday.
Think Speed will be there? I dream of the Speed dogs I've never had.....
thanks

  1. Speed is there M-F 10-6 unless bad weather. He has two employees now working the truck and things go a lot quicker then in the past. Last 3x i have been there has been a minimal wait.

    1. I'll be running some errands in the area this AM..including going to M & M BBQ. I'll try to call someone ..who can post a definitive answer..but my guess would be yes...should be around 11 ish.

          Went today at 2pm.No line.
          Wow, the mother of all dogs. I hadn't had one in 20 yrs and it was all I remembered. Lite everything and the best seat in the house is the granite block near the stand.(Don't try to eat one of these babies in your car.)

          FYI, Speed's 87 yrs old and retired.
          Greg's running it now and his card says he caters. Speed's dogs sounds like a great catered event.
          He says he's going to be open all year, weather permitting.

              So, are the days of seeing Speed himself no more?

                Yeah, it seems so. Greg definitely gave me the impression Speed was all done.
                Nice guy, I wish him well
