Spike's Junkyard Dogs and Stack-a Burger in Burlington Have Closed

A Rhode Island-based group of hot dog places whose slogan is "World's Best Hot Dog, Maybe Better!" continues to shrink, with one of its Boston-area locations closing--along with a burger concept from the spot.

Based on a Twitter picture that was posted late last week, Spike's Junkyard Dogs and Stack-a Burger at the Burlington Mall are both shuttered, with a message sent from one of the other Spike's locations telling us that they believe it may have closed last Monday. The Burlington location of Spike's is one of a few that have closed over recent years, including stores in Boston's Back Bay, Somerville's Davis Square, and Fall River.

Locations of Spike's Junkyard Dogs that remain open include shops in Allston and North Attleboro, along with Providence, Cranston (which is where their headquarters are), and Warwick, RI, and Groton, CT. Their website can be found at
