Dau 278 - Lisa

After a week in NYC, I'll put our Bay Area institution Casper's Hot Dogs up against theirs or Chicago's. Growing up my Tia Chickie worked at the Casper's on C Street, she sometimes subbed at the Foothill Blvd location, both in Hayward and she worked the one in Dublin.  Used to love to go visit her with my Grandma Emily for lunch.  Got to play the juke box and eat a dog.  She used to bring us the 45's when they took them out of rotation which was always cool. 

Here's the history of the East Bay favorite:
