Motto’s Hot Dogs opens Rockford location

Motto’s Hot Dogs is opening a second location, its first in Rockford, at 6551 E. Riverside Blvd., just East of Perryville.

A grand opening ceremony is set for 4:30 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 3, at the new location.

Motto’s opened its first location in Belvidere in August 2005. The owners, Joey and Joanne Slapinski, answered a need from Belvidere’s growing community of Chicago-suburban transplants who were missing the traditional Chicago-style hot dog.

The Slapinskis, too, are from the Chicago area, and moved to Belvidere a few years ago. Missing the great-tasting hot dog, they began their desire to open Motto’s.

Motto’s Hot Dogs serves all the traditional Chicago favorites, such as Italian Beef, Italian Sausage, Gyros, and, of course, the great-tasting Chicago-Style Vienna Beef hot dog.

Motto’s also offers homemade pasta and meatballs from their own family recipe.

Call 323-1300 for more info.
