I cast my vote for the hot dog truck which has outlasted all vendors...SKIPPY"S parked in Dongan Hills by the S.I. little league.This was my grandfather Robert "SKIPPY" Bellach. The business was started in 1969 and my cousin still operates. I remember helping my grandfather renovate that international truck. Oh I miss my grandfathers homemade sauces chili and onion made exactly the same way as my grandmother Jane's recipe called for. I used to help peel and slice those 100lb bag of onions. Sabrett hot dogs!!! We never served "dirty water hot dogs as we would clean that truck and have fresh sauces everyday. He would not only served the best hot dogs but always held the best conversations. his customers would always stay and chat.My grandfather and grand mother are sorely missed but always will be alive in my heart and mind. the S.I. advance always did an interview with gramps every spring when He'd return from his winter vacation.
