Hot dogs are an iconic American food but like everything else in America, they are influenced by many cultures and recipes that continue to evolve. In Birmingham, Alabama, the hot dog game is strong thanks to a large immigrant population of Greeks who have been successful food purveyors for several generations.
Nick Pihakis, Founder and CEO of the Pihakis Restaurant Group, along with his partners, have teamed up with Pete Graphos, the founder of Sneaky Pete’s Hot Dogs, a Birmingham institution since 1966. Together, they blend the collective experience of nearly 100 years in the restaurant business with the nostalgia of a beloved food to re-introduce this Birmingham classic to a new audience in Atlanta.
