Frank Talk: What started as a small hot dog stand at Seaside Park in the 1930's has morphed into a full-scale eatery known as "The Greeks," for the Greek immigrants who worked there soon after Founder Harry Tomlinson died (and a Greek buyer took over)
The prices are fair, the food homey and hearty, and the red hots as popular as ever, though the restaurant also serves burgers, sandwiches, salads, soups and more. The diet-conscious love the low-carb menu while those in a rush love the drive-thru.
