Hot Dog excursion Part II
My original intent was to duplicate John Fox’s "Hot Dog Tour",planned for September 4th. Two of the places on his itinerary (Syds and Charlies) were closed on Sundays, however, making them unavailable to me. The final lineup;
1.Jerrys 906 2nd Avenue, Elizabeth. According to Hollyeats.com unusual in that they are boiled then grilled.
2 Tommys 900 2nd Avenue, Elizabeth (same block as Jerrys)Rated the second best Italian hot dog by John Fox(Charlies was first)
3. Galloping Hill Inn, Galloping Hill Rd. Kenilworth.John Fox’s favorite dog.Supposedly a Grote and Weigle dog used by no other new Jersey Spot
4.Rutts Hut 417 River Rd. Clifton. The quintessential deep fried dog.
5.The Hot Grill 699 Lexington Ave. Clinton John Fox,s Texas Wiener pick.
Having foregone breakfast to whet my appetite and armed with printouts from Roadfood, Hollyeats and Mapquest, I set out on a drizzly Sunday the 15th on my quest.(to be continued)
