DeMiglio bought a food truck and plans on selling his dogs all over Bergen County: the very same hot dogs, he proudly assured, that his grandfather, uncle and father sold for 46 years. “I even have the original cook,” DeMiglio said. “It’s the same hot dog, the same buns, the same everything.” Oh yes, even the same price: $3 for a dog.
