One of Connecticut's most well-known hot dog stands, Super Duper Weenie, started with a truck that owner Gary Zemola saw in a book of paintings by photorealist John Baeder.

RoadfoodLogoFormerly a mobile truck selling hot dogs by the side of the road, Super Duper Weenie is now a stationary restaurant with indoor seating. As you might suspect from its name, the house specialty is a hot dog. It is a firm-fleshed, locally-made weenie that is split and cooked on the grill until its outside gets a little crusty but the inside stays succulent. It is sandwiched in a lovely fresh-baked roll and adorned with utterly amazing condiments -- homemade condiments, including relish made from pickles that Chef Gary Zemora has himself made from cucumbers!

Super Duper Weenie started off as a hot dog truck on a traffic circle off I-95 back in 1976. A few years they moved to their current location just off the circle. Only problem there are what seems like 43 roads that, in true New England style, flow into the circle. Few things in life are worth negotiating a New England traffic circle. Super Duper Weenies is one of them.

It's a bird, it's a plane... it's when finally made the papers! We are news that's fit to print since we were included in a review for a documentary we were in back in 1999. The story of the SDW truck was included in "A Hot Dog Program" which aired on PBS in 1999. Click here to read the review of the program (and to see Gary's mug in print!)
