Rutts Hut?

I just watched a program on "deep fried foods" and they featured a place (in NJ I think) Where they deep fry hot dogs! I know my palette isn't as sophisticated as most but to me this was pure GENIUS!!! I can't believe I'm just now hearing about this!! Anyone ever eat there??

My brother went there. I am not sure if it is the exact same place, but he reaved about deep fried dogs from a place in Jersey.

i've been there a million times. deep fried dogs are awesome!

when properly done (imo), they're called rippers because the skin tears as they fry.




some people like them just barely fried, called an "in and outer", and some people get them cooked until burnt, called a "cremator".

the only condiment available is their homemade relish. normally, i can't stand relish, but their's is very good. the pictures don't do it justice as it sort of has a neon green-ish yellow color, and just looks cool on the dog.

there's a few places around north jersey that deep fry their dogs, but rutt's is the most famous.

btw, it's sort of on the corner of route's 3 and 21, but it's one of those "you can't get there from here" kinda places.
you can see it from the highways, but you have to take the exit before you see it (from either direction. go figure, it's jersey...) and take a local road to it.

buckytom, those pictures have inspired me to dust off the deep fryer (as soon as Mrs Smoke King goes to bed!!)

Yum!!

Hi Smoke King & Buckytom - Yup Rits hutt is famous for it's dogs and if memory serves correctly, wasn't it a hangout for hot cars in the 60's?

It is certainly a you can't get there from here type place. Can't get there by accident, or maybe you can.

Thanks for bringing this up, smoke. I saw that episode a couple weeks ago and had forgotten all about it.
