Our History

1922 Our grandfather, Frank Mamolito opened the Original Star Lunch in Punxsutawney at 214 N. Findley Street.  During his 42 years in business, Frank served thousands of people who enjoyed a very unique hot dog sauce. Frank then retired in 1964, passing the hot dog sauce recipe down to his daughter, Frances Mamolito Hetrick.

From 1993 to the present day his grandsons, Frank and Chuck, have worked the S.S.C.D. Lawn Festival hot dog stand where the feature item is their family’s hot dog sauce; which was passed down to Frank from their mother, Frances.  After 51 years, in memory and honor of their Pup, Frank and Chuck brought Star Lunch back to the community.

We thank my grandfather for his legacy and reputation and our mother, Frances, for her inspiration and sharing the recipe! Stop in and enjoy the classic menu items as well as some modern additions.

We look forward to carrying on the tradition!
