Step Right Up in Hudson Ohio is a fun family restaurant - really, two restaurants in one...Donuts in the morning, grilled hot dogs and meals in the afternoon and evening, all affordably priced.
Located at 5929 Darrow Road in Hudson, Step Right Up offers Sahlen's Hot Dogs made specifically to be charcoal grilled over a hot fire. They also grill hamburgers, chicken and sausage. They have french fries, sweet potato fries, onion rings and an array of fresh condiments that include chili, cheese and sauerkraut.
The service is great, and so is the food! I had a regular sized hot dog with stadium mustard, relish, ketchup and yes, onions! Yum! Add lemonade to drink and potato salad, and what a great grilled lunch! Next time I am going to try the sweet potato fries and sliders - they looked and smelled delicious!
The Lococo family is very proud of their place - from the history, theme and signs...
to the charcoal grill...that's Augie, today's grill master...
to the donut machine...too bad I came at the wrong time...free samples when hot sound delicious!!
Owner August Lococo based the restaurant on an amusement park theme with a mural and memorabilia from Geauga Lake. Old signage and pictures from the old Geauga Lake days hang on the walls. Most guests who come in the restaurant have an old memory to share with Lococo. Lococo's father, Gasper, was one of the owners of Geauga Lake before it was sold to Six Flags. When Gasper Lococo retired, he wrote his memoirs in a book titled "Step Right Up", thus came the name of the restaurant.
I left with a smile as I sipped my lemonade - I think you will enjoy Step Right Up in Hudson - let me know what you think! Tell the owners you read about it here!
