Jimmy's grill, the same one he has had for 35 years, stands under a window overlooking the street.
At Jimmy's Hot Dogs, change is not good. The customer cannot have it his way, he can have it Jimmy's way: with mustard, onions and chili. At least, for a few weeks longer. Jimmy and Efthymia Rellos are closing Jimmy's Hot Dogs, a popular local hot dog stand for the last 35 years. Here, Jimmy, who is 89 years old, works the grill in the window of his place.
Jimmy's usual, two dogs with mustard, onions and chili.
Most customers have been coming to Jimmys for decades. "Mrs. Jimmy" takes orders, but Jimmy already knows what his regulars want.
Jimmy and Mrs. Jimmy stick with the Greek mentality that if you like their food and eat a lot of it, you like them.
Lunch at Jimmys is a tradition, even for residents who have moved away. Whenever they visit the area, they visit Jimmys.
Jimmy's original cash register still totals the bill, $2.00 per dog nowadays.
Jimmy and Mrs. Jimmy, (Effie), have run the business together for 35 years.
Customers know closing day is near. They will all miss Jimmy, and his dogs.
