I finally made it to the Capital City Diner when it was open.
I have been craving scrapple for six months- a regional specialty they just don’t have it in Halifax. I was in luck at the Cap City and got it with my three pancakes and coffee.
The old Kullman at Adams Antique Mall in PA was moved to Washington DC in 2005/06 and never opened. It was later demolished.
It appears there is now nothing left.
According to their now non-existent website:

Everyone loves a Fat Dog!
Start with one the most popular foods in America and then let imagination be your guide. Have your dog, the way you want it.
