Coney Island Doggie Sauce

This is a new experience for me. I've gone over tons of messages from New Castle, PA, about their hot dog sauce. I've looked for years...I mean years....for a special sauce I remember as a kid in Easton, PA. The place was Steve's Cup just off Nazareth Road in Palmer Township. I was 6 or 7 and helped there washing pans. Cars would line up next to Steve's and would come for great distances. Steve was a Greek and had his place open about 9 months each year heading to Florida in the winter or back home to Greece to visit. His dogs were deep fried and put into a very steamed roll. They were slathered with his sauce, a thin slide of dill pickle, some celery salt and then rapped in wax paper to steam. I've tried for years (I'm 71 now) to duplicate. Some of the famous doggie shops are in this area, for example Yoccos in Allentown. There was also a Marcos at 4th and Gordon in Allentown and then the famous Crystal Palace doggie shop on Penn Street in Reading. But nothing compared to Steve's Cup.
