Boy, Are People Bonkers for BeeZers; Grand Opening Brings 'Em in On Friday

BeeZers grand opening brings Chicago dog fanatics (and curious wanderers) to the new stand.

The Reuter family has been waiting for They've even saved the coupon for two years.

"We walked over here," said Karla Reuter, who sat with Paul and Dana Reuter enjoying some hot dogs at the picnic table. "We've still got an old coupon, and we brought it in to be autographed. We're going to get everything on the menu."

"We were so crushed when they closed down," said Paul. "We're huge fans. We would wait every spring for them to open."

On Friday, they were one of the many who visited for the grand opening of BeeZers, the hot dog (and more) stand that has taken up residence in the Trombetta's building on Main Street.

BeeZers, which lost its lease nearly two years ago, had been hoping for a chance to reopen and the stars aligned when the Barsamian family, which owns Trombetta's, called them up.

Earlier this week, Linda Bock, who owns BeeZers with husband Steve, welcomed the refrigerated truck to the site that delivered the neon-green relish straight from Chicago. You can't have a real Chicago dog without that relish, they say. The hot dogs, too, come from Chicago.

"It's really a cult thing," said Linda.

Guy Angers is a Chicago dog enthusiast from Marlborough who headed out for the opening.

"I'm a long time lover of the Chicago hot dog," he said. "I found out it was opening even before it got in the paper."

Though most in line ordered a dog (and after got an ice cream from Trombetta's), others partook in other items on the menu. Christine McGinnity, who always ordered the veggie wrap at the old location, chose the lobster roll which featured huge chunks of fresh lobster meat from West Boylston Seafood.

You can get those on the famous poppyseed buns (baked at Crown Bakery), too.

Such a nice setting, too. Plenty of places to sit and eat, and it doesn't hurt to be surrounded by lots of plants and flowers (that you can buy).

Some aren't sure how to get started, or may not want to deal with clipping coupons because they don't believe the savings is worth the time it takes to cut and organize to them i recommend the website Printapons and also coupons
