I have an update for fans of Chicago-style hot dogs: Dickies Dogs, located on the SW corner of Thompson Peak Pkwy. and Bell Rd, will not be re-opening.
I learned from several people in the area this week, that the restaurant did not have their lease renewed. You may recall that this location was the scene of several frightening bombings and the restaurant was destroyed on more than one occasion..
While it appeared in recent months that the rebuild was progressing smoothly, it was noticed that sometime in mid-December, that those efforts came to a sudden hault.
The dogs were good, though over priced and those of us in the neighborhood are thankful that no one was injured or killed in these unsolved crimes.
Note: this makes 2 failed independent restaurants in this strip mall, as there was pizza place that went under several years ago and the space remains vacant today.
