Boulevard Drinks has been serving hot dogs as lights at the end of the PATH train since 1937. The closet-sized outpost in Jersey City is known for its dogs that go "snap" when you bite into them -- the sign of a well-cooked brat. Just a couple of bucks will get you a wiener slathered in sauerkraut and saucy onions. For a quarter more splurge on a chili cheese dog. Either way, you won't be the first New Yorker to head across the river for Jersey's finest. --Jessica Goodman
