Pee Wee's

A tipster has informed us that Pee Wee's Famous Hot Dogs and Hamburgers has closed. We've written about the hole-in-the-wall many times over the years since it opened in 2010.

We've even included it in our list of 10 best hot dog joints and 10 best burger joints. We even had it as a contender in our Game of Burgers tournament (which, yes, we kinda never finished) and our Sausage Issue last summer.

Even as we called them out for a few missteps, we liked Pee Wee's, a lot. Farewell Pee Wee's. We were just getting to know you.

I like that you use the word "kinda" in your article.

A burger & hotdog shack that can't stay open across from a high school should tell you something. ...

They were THE BEST sucks that apparently enough people didn't know about them otherwise the line would have been out the door everyday.

I wonder if the lack of restroom facilities and piss poor parking had anything to do with it? How does a family take kids to a place where they cannot go to the bathroom?
