Reputedly the best hot dogs in New York
I put this up on Major Foodie website, not to stand up against other restaurants obviously, but I am a huge fan of trying to establish where the best of anything food-wise is and I believe I have found it for hot dogs in New York and it is here. I can’t claim the credit for this as it was the late Anthony Bourdain that showed me this venue, but having had the superb array of hot dogs made from beef frankfurters (grilled not boiled), washed down with gorgeous papaya drink and soft buns that were not too thick and didn’t create a clingy dough to your upper mouth on eating, I concur 100%, you have a superb treat waiting for you here. The dogs I tried on two separate visits were with an onion ring and bbq sauce, one with a vast amount of pleasing relish, another with bacon and melted cheese and a classic with simply mustard, ketchup and dried onions. I can assure you, that these are worth getting on the subway for and making the journey to 86th St, west of Central Park. Basically they are addictive and a must if you are in New York for a few days – this must be on the to-do list.
