There is a new hot dog place in Pasadena. In a space we Chowhounders know well - where La Reina and then Normas Taco's used to be. On the corner of Chester and Green.
I tried to go today after noticing it earlier this week, but when I drove up at 2:15 one of the employees came out to let me know that they had to close due to electrical issues. I asked him for a menu and drove on with the decision to stop by next week.
On the menu, they have Mustard Dogs $2.50; Chili Dog (mustard, onions & chili) $2.95 add cheese $3.35, Chicago Dog (I will confirm whether or not they have the neon relish and sportpeppers and report back) $2.75, Kraut Dog, Corn Dog, Fries $1.75, chili fries $3.25, add cheese $3.65. And then drinks. "All dogs made with 100% beef. Beef dogs with a "snap" (natural casing) or veggie dogs available on request". Not sure how long the prices will be this low, but I plan on trying them soon.
Unfortunately, the menu does not have hours.
