BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Massachusetts will not have a Spike's Junkyard Dogs by the end of the month, as the Allston location announced they will not be renewing their lease, closing up shop on September 24 after 20 years in service.
WBZ's James Rojas spoke with Dave, the owner of the Allston location, who says he's retiring from the hot dog business. The Spike's in Warwick, Rhode Island will remain open to customers, Dave said.
"I can't believe it's happening, it's been a tremendous run. Had a lot of great people that I've worked with. Thanks for being great friends and customers, we truly appreciate it— it's been a lot of fun," Dave said.
Prior to saying farewell, the Allston store brings back some old favorites and weekly specials to the menu. Among its roster is the popular 'Texas Ranger' hotdog, which is topped with barbeque sauce, bacon, and cheddar cheese.
