The Albany location will stay where it has been for about three-quarters of a century.

Just last week, Gov. Brian Kemp stopped by the iconic restaurant while visiting the Good Life City.

Not only a staple in Albany eateries, Jimmie’s Hot Dogs was also a prominent spot during the Civil Rights Movement in Albany during the 1960s.
