Yon Kim is really upset. The owner of Dog Stop in Far North Dallas has to close her 13-year old hot dog stand at the end of September.

dogstopYon Kim is really upset. The owner of The Dog Stop in Far North Dallas has to close her 13-year old hot dog stand at the end of September. “My lease is up and the landlords want to tear down this building,” Kim says. “I don’t know where I am going to go after this.”

Kim took over the small kiosk that was once a drive-through photo processing spot on Arapaho just west of Hillcrest. Her menu offers a variety of styles including Chicago, Philly, German, Polish, and Texas. Brian Luscher, the current Weiner King of Dallas, is upset. Today he writes on Facebook: “Save The Dog Stop on Arapaho! A really real Chicago hot dog joint.”

Kim says her customers are upset. “I put a sign in the window and people are very sad,” Kim says. “They love to drive through with their kids. I didn’t know how much they cared until now.”

Here’s a thought: Why can’t somebody swoop in (your cue, Luscher) and pick this little house off the concrete and move it someplace nearby. There has to be a landlord with a heart somewhere, right?
