BRUD'S HOT DOGS

Corner Towsend & Wharf
Boothbay Harbor ME

Hours:  Whenever

"King Brud" is 82 and has been serving up hot dogs on a corner in Boothbay Harbor for 59 years.  Back then his dogs cost 15 cents.

Brud is also elusive.  I've been trying to bag him for this site for a few visits.  He sets his own hours - mostly lunch, mostly in season.  I caught him on a sunny Sunday in early June.

The guy at the hardware store humorously cautioned me that Brud's aren't the greatest dogs.  "I've got a t-shirt that reads 'Brud Free since '83.'"  

I don't want no t-shirt.  Brud's dogs are fine - steamed dog, steamed bun and topped with mustard, relish, onion, ketchup and 59 years of tradition.
