Sneak Peek at Station Street Hot Dogs

Twitter is all abuzz about the newest establishment to open in Pittsburgh.  Station Street Hot Dogs, located on Broad Street (kind of behind the new Target) in East Liberty, official opens today at 4pm.

We got a sneak peek at the place from Dave Lagnese (who is a super supporter of the neighborhood – stop by and say hello to him at the East Liberty Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings – he is the man behind the Kew Park coffee bar).

Here is his report on Station Street with a few photos…

Station Street Hot Dogs opened today at 5:00. I am happy to report that I was the first paying customer! I had a new york dog and a kimchi dog with an order of fries. All were excellent. The photos are of the menu board being chalked when I arrived about 10 to five. And Kevin preparing the first order (mine). He seemed to have the same intensity putting fixins on the dog as he does plating a dish at SALT. They told me the hours would be something like 11:30 am until 11:00 in the evening. Check it out and spread the word.

You can check out the entire menu at www.stationstreetpgh.com.  They have a great website – we aren’t sure who designed the site but we hope to track that down.  They also share some history of the place.  It is nice to see a local business getting an update.

Station Street is a hot dog shop in the East Liberty neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA. Opened in 1915 at the corner of Station Street and Larimer Avenue and relocated in 1969 to Broad Street, the shop was closed for several decades before being resurrected in 2006 by Bob and Ruth Tortorete. In February 2012, Station Street was reopened by brothers Kevin and Tom Sousa, and designer Jay Fanelli.
