As you might have already read, the restaurant will be opening back up sometime in October under new ownership and a new name.
Dave Kay was a regular customer of ours and we wish him well opening up as East Providence Weiners.
At one time there were locations in Providence, Cranston, and East Providence, although only the last is still operating.
The current owner is a fellow with the shocking moniker of Sparky Watts, who learned the weiner business from Jimmy Kanelos when he was in high school and college.
The Kanelakos family was, from 1905 to 1924, in partnership with a family named Bergeris.
