the only hot dog for me, besides the boiled ones at jankee stadium are from a place called rutt's hut.
heya vickiq, another joisey foodie destination for you and the family would be rutt's hut, just off of rte's 21 and 3. they make hot dogs called rippers that are fantastic. they're deep fried until the skin tears or rips, hence the name. here's a close up of a coupla rippers, one plain, one with their secret recipe homemade relish. the skin gets nice and crisp from being deep fried. they may be ugly, but man are they good.
