After the expansion of the Langlois Market in " 1981", the need for a deli was a must due to the Tucker saw mill gang. * The mill employed quite a few workers all looking for something to eat at their morning and afternoon breaks . Truckers going up and down 101 seemed to be hungry as well As we pondered on what to sell, my mother-in-law Muriel Sweet suggested our selling hot dogs using her famous mustard recipe. She knew people enjoyed her mustard from all the compliments she received every time served it at picnics.
During the course of the past thirty-three years, our hot dogs have become famous throughout the area. It is the combination of serving a very delicious frankfurter made with beef and pork, Muriel’s' home- made mustard and just the right pickle combination. It is the word- of -mouth advertizing that seems to bring people from far and near to sample our dogs. People will drop in and say, " I just have to try one of your hot dogs that I heard about." Some people even go as far as to say they are " world famous."

Photo confirmations of the acclaimed "dog"
This guy loves the world famous hot dogs so much that he volunteered to eat second one for this photo op.
