Pizza, bagels, diner burgers, and Italian cuisine are just a few of the many famous cuisines that hail from New Jersey. But have you ever questioned whether or not the New Jersey hot dog receives sufficient acclaim?
The good news for New Jersey’s hot dog fans just keeps on coming. Among the top hot dog restaurants in the United States is one right here in our own backyard.
According to Cheapism, only 28 of America’s hot dog joints are worth visiting.
In this case, Rutt’s Hut in Clifton deserves the accolade.
Because the skin of the hot dog rips when it’s deep fried, Rutt’s is famous for its Ripper. All you had to say was “rip,” and I was sold.
If you have never tried Rutt’s Hut, you should. They are located at 417 River Rd. in Clifton. Also, it’s been said that you need to order extra chilli.
When it comes to hot dogs, this New Jersey institution is right up there with the best in the world at Nathan’s Famous on Coney Island. In other words, this is a huge thing.
Steamie Weenie in Las Vegas (where else, right? ), and Evil Weiner in Austin, Texas, are also on the list.
