Jimmy Buff's

60 Washington St., West Orange, NJ - (973) 325-9897
Jimmy Buff's contends it was the inventor of the Italian hot dog, also known as a Newark dog: an all-beef wiener deep-fried until its outside is taut enough to crunch. One of these dogs, or preferably two, if you order a double as most people do, are hoisted from the oil and nestled inside a half a round loaf of sturdy Italian bread along with fried potatoes and sauteed onions and peppers. An awesome meal!

This meal-in-a-bun is a Newark original, and one of America's premier hot dogs. By the way, that's TWO hot dogs inside the sandwich.
