The onion rings at Rutt’s Hut are greasy..Greasy good to me. They are not the ones with a bunch of breading (usually frozen) but rather made with a very thin coating of flours..You’re getting almost pure onions and yes they are very greasy. Obviously not for everyone….In South Florida, several posters said they loved the Char-Hutt’s onion rings..they are exactly the same way. I love their’s too.
Fred – I’m suggesting before you make Rutt’s Hutt your "very best hot dog" (glad we can convert you from those "salad dogs" of Chicago in any case) that you also try Hirum’s in Ft. Lee on Rt 9W. I still do not think John Fox has been to Hirum’s yet, but we have had this discussion for several years now.
John, am I correct that you still have not been able to get to Hirum’s?
Foodbme–Too many smilies! Please contain your emotions. You will cause this site to go down according to the moderators! Like John Fox Hot Dog Guru says.."it’s not for everyone." It is a very, very bland hot dog made of a combination of beef and pork or pork only…It’s the unique texture, the blazing temperature that hits your mouth with that first crunchy bite, the condiments (I love the red and emerald green relishes and the brown mustard) and those two ice cold Yoo Hoos or a Birch Beer is fine, too. It’s the whole package that give this dining experience it’s favorable marks for me.
CC…Nope..I never saw too many girls in Hirum’s. It’s been a few years, but when I lived in Jeerze, I was at Hirum’s at least once a week. Worked next door at Calahan’s one summer, too. Another deep fried dog joint. Whenever I’m back in Bergen County, Hirum’s is one of my very first roadfood stops.
So, Foodbme, just wondering? Do you like a good Chicago Salad Dog? [:p]
