I almost forgot. There is a great little anomaly that can be found in Tempe. Yes, out by the airport on your way to ASU on Broadway, you can find a genuine Ted’s Hot Dogs like the ones back in Buffalo. I’ve been to the ones back in New York and this one, and it’s a pretty good substitute. Same Sahlen’s franks, same Aunt Rosie’s Loganbery. It even has a collection of up-to-date Buffalo newspapers for those out of touch with what’s going on with the Bills.
My wife and I were almost late for a flight one time because I insisted on stopping here rather than getting our rental car back early. We barely made the plane, but our hot dogs sure were a lot better than the Nathan’s that was available by the departing gates. It was definitely worth the gamble.
