Well, looks like the South Boston iconic hot dog stand at Castle Island WILL NOT be expanding to the greener pastures of suburbia – Hingham! Thank God! According to Boston Eater, Sullivan’s will not be opening the proposed constructing a new 2,000 square foot bathhouse and food stand.
Sullivan’s Castle Island has been selling hot dogs and hamburgers in South Boston since 1951 and has been owned and operated by the same family.
There is something a little unsettling about Sullivan’s – which is synonymous to Castle Island and South Boston – being somewhere else – Hingham no less so to say we are relieved is an understatement! Phew! We’re not good at sharing!
