Sad Day in Beantown

October 25, 2013

I’m sorry to report (and, on top of it, sorry I’ve been away for so long) that Gregg Gale, the owner/operator of what used to be Speed’s and is now Boston Super Dog, passed away this morning.  Gregg had been running the truck for as long as I’ve been visiting it in Newmarket Square and not only did he serve a delicious dog but he was a very kind man whose love for his job was always evident.  In the past five years, I’ve probably visited the stand 10 times and the dog was always an astounding experience–and this was recognized by many others, such as the Wall Street Journal (which named it the best dog in America), Holly Eats (one of my favorite road food websites), and almost annually in the Boston Magazine as Boston’s Best Dog.  We’ll certainly miss Gregg and hope that someone will step up to carry on the tradition.Image

    Wow. Incredibly sad. I only made it there two or three times, but it was an experience, and Greg was part of it. He loved to talk about what he was doing.
