WORCESTER — Talk about a restaurant with the personal touch. A giant neon hand grasping a hot dog — complete with dripping mustard — has summoned hungry people to George’s Coney Island since owner George Tsagarelis commissioned the 60-foot-high sign in 1940. The designer modeled the hand on George’s own mitt. Generations later, family members still run the restaurant, and it remains an integral part of downtown.
