In a state known for its hot dog worship, one spot stands out for its longevity and a closely guarded recipe. Known by its regulars as “Cappy’s,” Capitol Lunch has served hot dogs with a signature Greek-style meat sauce since 1929. The hot dogs are grilled and served on a steamed bun with mustard, sauce and diced raw white onions. The key to their success may be how little things have changed over the years. The same family runs the restaurant, and prices stay low.
