A new location of Bill's Hot Dogs, a legendary eatery in Little Washington, opens today in Greenville -- and patrons who have been making the 30-minute drive for a hot dog couldn't be happier.

   Bill's Hot Dogs of Greenville is at 4300 Eastern Pines Road, at the intersection with Portertown Road.

   Since 1928, Bill's has sold one thing -- hot dogs. That's it -- and that's all they've needed to attract a generation of hungry eastern North Carolinians.

   Servers on an assembly line plop Bill's bright red fried hot dogs in a steamed bun that's already loaded with founder Bill Jackson's original recipe meatless spicy chili sauce, mustard and onions. Then they're wrapped in paper.

   The cost is $1.50 per hot dog. Sausage dogs are available, too. 

   The new Greenville location -- in a former convenience store/gas station -- doesn't have a screen door like the place on Gladden Street in Washington, but it's got a great mural on the exterior wall -- it's painted with hot dog buns for you to stand in and take a photo (you're the hot dog!).

   Bill's Hot Dogs of Greenville is open from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Mondays-Saturdays.
