It’s been one month since Eater announced the closure of South Philly hot dog icon Texas Wieners. In that time, owner John Viggiano was able to secure a buyer—his brother, Michael Viggiano, who will reopen the store at 1426 Snyder Avenue on November 1, writes

The menu will not change — you’ll be ordering the same RC Cola, the same dogs (built on forearms), with the same secret “Greek sauce” (like a Greek spaghetti sauce). Pro-tip: get “The Works” with cheese.

Michael managed a now-shuttered Texas Wieners outpost in Collingswood, NJ, but it wasn’t until he took over the Snyder Avenue location that he was given the “old piece of paper that has been passed down for years” with the recipe.
