I’m torn. It’s like asking Lassie to pick her favorite pup from all her litters.
My pat answer is the one I discover tomorrow.
If forced to pick, I’d insist on three and hedge with a dozen more that are just as good. Like much in life, it depends on the moment.
My three, in no particular order, Tommy’s Italian Hot Dog in Elizabeth NJ, Rutt Hut in Rahway and the steamed dog from Mike’s truck at 23rd and Passyunk in Philadelphia. Ask me tomorrow, I could say Flo’s in Maine, Boston Speed’s, and Nathan’s.
