        Went in there at about noon today and there were 40 people ahead of me in the queue. Yes, that's right, I pulled #20 and they were up to #80. The vibes were great, big smiles all around, patrons sharing stories about how they grew up with Dittmer's sausages, etc. It felt like a revival meeting. It's a much roomier location with huge display cases. Don't know if I've ever seen more meat in one place. The sandwich counter won't open until September 1st. We snagged some merguez and some smoked pork chops and chicken legs. Yum!

        Thank you very much, Derek! That is welcome news, after having almost given up on seeing this institution return to enrich our tastebuds and arteries.

          A friend was there today and reports buying Sheboygans, brats, bacon and a 26-ounce ribeye that he said was so beautiful it brought tears to his eyes. He said the place is larger with more room to move around.
