Jimmie’s of Savin Rock

with 5 comments

Stopped at Jimmie’s in the Savin Rock section of West Haven Connecticut when I up north in June.  Although the current restaurant has been up for several decades, it’s a stark change from the Hot Dog stand of the 50s and 60s with Ronnie screaming out “Split Two”!

Two split Roesslers hot dogs, fries, and cole slaw – went down easy the the cold brew.  I didn’t really remember the neon green relish but I guess they always served it.  It’s the hot relish at the Glenwood Drive-In I love!

  1. Man…that hot dog plate is beautiful. I don’t think I could finish but I’d damn sure love to try.

  2. Looks like a perfect place to stop by for a hearty meal and a cold one.

    Remember in High School, we would go to Jimmies and get the hot dogs for $.20 and the fries were $.25??

    We could not get the beer then.

    • Yes, I remember. And it was the old Jimmies stand. I remember going in your Mom’s 56 Buick – think it was you, me, Geary, and we may have met Richie D there (he lived close to Jimmies). $1.00 went a long way back then!

  4. Would love to get a hold of that beautiful picture and give it to the Roesslers. That would be a special gift.
