I'll have the AOA

nippers cart capitol parkSo, last week as part of the totally informal lunch-up at the Capitol Park food trucks, Nipper's Hot Dogs offered an AOA special: two classic Chicago-style hot dogs for $2. It's a good deal -- lunch doesn't get much cheaper.

Well, much to our surprise, the Nipper's guys have decided to rename their classic dogs the "All Over Albany Classic Hot Dogs" and keep the special price for the rest of the summer! We're very flattered! (And, it must be said, a little hungry.)

It was great to see everyone at the lunch up. Thanks for stopping by!



Yay! I was sad to miss the meetup, but I was pulled into a meeting that afternoon. I did manage to make it out to the Nipper truck around 1:40 and nabbed the last two hot dogs. Phew! They were delicious.

On to the Columbo frozen yogurt guy! I have my lunch there twice a week - get them to do an AOA special. An AOA Froyo Special!

Is the stand open on the weekends? I can't make it from Rensselaer to Albs on my lunch break, and I miss their dogs! :(

Nipper's does Hot Dogs very well...we specialize in them..we also believe if you give folks a good product at an affordable price they will keep coming back...to some degree we are all hurting in this economy...that's why Nipper's is such a good lunch deal...where else can you get two hot dogs with free cold condiments and a 32 oz Fresh Lemonade for $5.50 ?
No where in the Capital Region..only at Nipper's Hot Dogs, LLC

Thank you Bob and AOA. This deal sounds positively dangerous. Damn it, why do hot dogs have to be so delicious.

Today's Special: Come to Nipper's & repeat the Nipper's slogan and get 2 classic hot dogs w/free cold condiments and a 32oz Lemonade for $5.00 >>>>TODAY ONLY

If this was Facebook, I'd "like" this post.
