Hobokenpix: Do you love Hot Dogs?

[Continuing the ORIGINAL Hoboken411 “Photo of the Day” series…]

Hoboken Photo of the Day – 8/17/2009

Spotted this guy outside of DC’s Tavern (8th & Jefferson) yesterday – proudly displaying his love for Hot Dogs.

Speaking of which – I need to add the “Deep Fried Hot Dogs” at Park & Sixth to my list of items to try… anyone try them yet?

So now you know from hot dogs. Can’t take it anymore, that’s it, I’m climbing in the car and going to JJ’s hot dog truck on Bloomfield Avenue in Newark for a late snack. Wearin’ my JJ’s “Eat Me” t-shirt. Getting the dogs with that sh!t they refer to as “cheese” on them. Then cruisin’ up and down Bloomfield Avenue with my peeps. Can’t eat at White Castle every night anyway, ain’t healthy, hey, I saw “Supersize Me”, that stuff ‘ll kill you.

Someone says hot dog and my head snaps around. I too will accept any far fetched reason to find myself heading to Rutts. Haven’t any of you had the Italian frank at Piccolo’s right here in River City (Hoboken)? You need to get one, now. I love it as much as Rutts. Of course at Rutts you can order a side of chili, beans on the bottom, and make yourself a chili dog. Good onion rings too, and beer of course. Anyone need a ride?

That covers fast food restaurants. How about grocery store dogs? I’m going with Hebrew National for home dogs.

I’m going to throw Thuman’s into the mix. Not the best dog, but for a home-brew option it’s pretty damn sharp – nice snap when you bite into it.

Here’s what I’m against: boiled hot dogs. Don’t get me wrong – a good dirty water dog can be fantastic, but grilled/fried is the way to go for hot dog consumption. Need the ‘snap’.

Yes. Dirty water dogs are far better than clean, home water dogs :).

I love this thread so much.

I have tried everything ,including buying sabrets, to make boiled mutts at home it can’t be done. The wagons mustn’t change the water they just add more water similiar to the starter in sour dough bread. The kraut is the cheapest on the market and the onions can not be duplicated. But when put all togeather

I’m not sure if this makes a big difference, but the water that dirty water dogs are in at street venders doesn’t seem to be that hot. Maybe it’s partly about a slow boil and a real skinny hot dog. Just a theory. I take my junk food too seriously.
BTW having that Nathan’s on Washington Street was good while it lasted. Maybe they should have sold ice cream or Italian ice as well and they could have hung on. But all for the best. I would probably weigh ten pounds more by now.

I beg to differ. No conversation of northern New Jersey fast food hot dogs is complete without at least a passing reference to Rutt’s Hut in Clifton. Place is a dump, opinions vary, but definitely a noteworthy legend.

Home dogs: Nathan’s Famous #1. I liked those Frankenfurters they used to sell with the chili in the middle. Gimmicky but good. If you’re going to eat junk, no half-way measures!

Oven baked are also good… And when I was a kid, my mom would saute hotdogs for us, sometimes.
