French dressing on pizza in Biloxi?

Hello, My name is Jim Rungo, I am the son of Hugo Rungo Jr, and Grandson of Hugo Sr. I have to ask if you would be willing to sell that menu? I am currently in the process of trying to reopen Hugo's and the menu would go great. I still have one of the shirts but my mother has the only menu we had and she can't find it. I have a scan of one of the menus but that is all. Please let me know if you are willing to let it go.

Thank you Jim Rungo

that pizza was created by the man that bought Hugos from my dad, Norman Duplain. It was not a creation of my dads. Sorry I couldn't help.

I am very glad you enjoy those memories ! I have many of them myself, my Dad passed away April 3rd of 2008. I remember the Lounge and the resturant like it was yesterday! I am the only living sole with the recipe for that pizza. The french dressing thing started in the mid-late 60's and took off! Like I said the SunHerald did a big story on it . The city tore the building down after Katrina, it had turned into a biker bar. I was a Biloxi Police Officer for many years and went to the bar on calls all the time. My Dad had sold the resturant to Norman Duplain who actually passed away a couple of months ago. I thought about re-opening Hugo's but just don't have the extra time that it would require. It was really nice to read all the good comments that everyone wrote. Take care and GOD bless!

My Name is Jim Rungo, and I am the son of Hugo Rungo who was the owner of HUGO's Resturant. Yes French Dressing on pizza started at Hugo's resturant. there was a big article done by the Sun Herald about it. If you search their archives I am sure you can find it.
