Beloved New Jersey hot dog joint named among America’s best
New Jersey is well-known for so many amazing types of food, like pizza, bagels, diner burgers, and Italian food. But did you ever wonder if the New Jersey hot dog is getting enough love?
Well, here's some great news for the Garden State hot dog lover. One of our very own hot dog joints makes the list of best hot dog joints in America.
Only 28 hot dog places in America made the cut, as ranked by Cheapism.
The honor belongs to Rutt's Hut in Clifton.
Rutt's is the home of the Ripper, named after the way the skin of the hot dog rips when they deep fry it. You had me at "rip".
They are located at 417 River Rd. in Clifton and if you have never given them a try, you have to put Rutt's Hut on your to-do list. And, we hear you should ask for some extra chili.
This New Jersey hot dog standard-bearer finds itself on the same list as the single most famous hot dog place on the planet, Nathan's Famous in Coney Island. So, yes, this is a really big deal.
There are also names on the list like the Steamie Weenie in Las Vegas (where else, right?) and Evil Weiner in Austin, Texas.
