Fort Wayne just got one step closer to spring. The Stand (5200 Bluffton Road) opened its doors for the season today.
The Stand specializes in hot dogs – there are 14 different styles, from the coney dog (a best seller) to a kung fu dog (coney sauce, General Tso's sauce and onions) to a Waynedale dog (coney sauce, coleslaw and mustard), owner Skip Sandels says.
This is The Stand's seventh or eight year in business, and Sandels estimates that, during a busy lunch, it can serve 200 to 300 people.
"For as small of a building as we have and what we put out, it's phenomenal," he says.
The restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. through May and will be open until 10 p.m. for the summer. Find The Stand on Facebook here.
