Best Hot Dog


Robert Sietsema: Why settle for a skinny little frank when you can have a quarter-pounder? Jumbo Hot Dogs, a window implanted in an electronics store, peddles griddled, all-beef franks lovingly fabricated in Newark. Toppings include the New York standards of mustard, sauerkraut, and saucy onions that are actually homemadewhich is amazing, come to think of it.

Sarah DiGregorio: Sure, you can now get Nathans hot dogs from here to L.A., but the dogs just taste best at the original Coney Island stand. And its open 24 hours year-round, so you can enjoy their classic smoky, garlicky snap along with a salty breeze anytime.
