You probably visited Dagwood’s, Joe Dimaggio’s, Shakey’s, Players, Frenchy’s, & Toppers before games at one time, too. All good pre-game venues back in the day in GF. Look what you’ve done. 

I miss 42nd Street Eatery.

Finally tried the improved baker boy bun grinder today, and can't tell it from the Hugo's bun. Some may like it better. Can now go back to my regularly scheduled grinder.

I love baker boy buns so I can imagine the new grinder buns are pretty good.

I was only in frenchy's once when I was 19 me and four of my buddies 

Had a great time on a Wednesday night. And our waitress was smoking hot. Blonde if I remember right her name was Teresa

Yes. No. Yes. No. No. Yes. 

Add in my previously admitted 4 for 4 and I'm 7 for 10. 

Please stay clear of the Red Pepper; usually eat there three times in two days when we come up for a football/hockey weekend.:)

OK, I'm 7 for 11. ;)  

Red Pepper was my "we're late, grab and go" option. Now that it's in the rink all the better.

What's with Neighbors Bar?

Friday and Saturday night. Hockey in town. Should be some of the best nights of the year.

Only two people ever in that bar (Massive glass exterior makes that easy to see).

Despite 100's of college students within easy stumbling distance.

You have to try to be that bad.

When people ask me about dogmahal, I reply: "I think the owners got high once and were like we should totally open a vinyl record (& comics, etc) shop and sell hot dogs.....and then they did."

Ate at the Pepper on 42nd today. Buns sucked. My wife liked it. My son and I said nyet.How long must this travesty continue?

Ate at the University Avenue one on Saturday. Buns were terrible still.

Heard they were getting them from a Canadian Company.

So the Pepper also changed their hot sauce a while back. It’s thicker now, and in my opinion, not near as good. Anybody else have a problem with it?

Disappointing. I'll be back in town in a few weeks and was really hoping they had it fixed. Based on their social media activity (responding to all bun questions with "yes we have the original recipe buns back"), I won't be able to trust them in the future. Killing my nostalgia.

 they are from Baker Boy in Dickinson. The newest batch is improved over the first Baker Boy buns, but they need to get rid of the corn meal on the bottom. Supposedly Baker Boy has the original Hugo's recipe but obviously hasn't perfected it yet

Why no more Hugo’s?

Not clear but some of the workers think the tellman's got a better deal from Baker Boy

Doesn’t sound like a better deal with all the negative pub.

Nope.   would guess the grinder business has slowed considerably

Better deal? They have to have the lowest overhead of any restaurant in the country. No servers, cheapest paper plates made and no forks. That's why we love it.

They're charging $10+ for a sub sandwich most places would get $8 for. I'm not going to pay that for substandard bread.

It’s over $10 for a full everything now? I’m a hard Schneider and tostada guy so I haven’t looked at the grinder prices in a while.

I think it was, although that may have included a small white sauce to go. Reminds me of the Pizza Corner debacle. That's a solid $6-7 pizza now, but they're still trying to get $10 at the grocery stores.
