Hot Grill

Chili Parlor | Hot Dog
One of the best

Step up to the order counter, where empty trays await and order a pair. NOBODY gets just one Texas weiner! (Yes, e-i, not i-e: it is the New Jersey way.) The counter man will holler out to the back kitchen, “Two, all the way!” And within ninety seconds, a pair of handsome little hot dogs will appear on the tray in front of you. Each is a deep-fried pup with rugged skin nestled in a too-short bun topped with mustard, onion, and spicy/sweet beef-chili sauce. Exemplary eats! On the side you can get French fries topped with gravy, sauce, or cheese or any combination of the three; and the preferred beverage with a Texas weiner is root beer.

It’s fun to dine in the Hot Grill’s vast modern dining room where, you are serenaded by the calls of the countermen back to the kitchen.

The flavor combination of hot dogs and chili is dazzling, but so are the textures. These deep-fried dogs have a real snap!
