The Great Dane hot dog house on 7th Street near Bethany Home Road closed up shop after more than three decades in business.  

According to a statement on the restaurant's Facebook page, the building lease was not renewed.  But don't count them out just yet.  The post goes on to read:

Thank you for being such wonderful customers, friends, and in some ways extended family!  We appreciate being a part of your life and look forward to that continuing. Even in this sad time we are happy to share that we are currently looking for a new space to open up again - So be sure to keep an eye on our page for updates!

With love, The Rigoli's, Theresa Wiesner, and Malena Romero
