I bet she relished the experience!

I would say more of a  “in and outer” experience ...............


Does not one expect a certain amount of rutting to occur at a place called "Rutt's Hut"?

    I think saying "right down the road from where they play football" is deceiving considering that there is NOTHING around the meadowlands. I was thinking it was a place that was a block away from a football stadium.

      It's hard to believe it took you folks took so lone to recognize one of the most popular hot-dog joints in the world...  I'm sure a lot of you never knew that Rutt's even had a bar .. Sitting at a table inside the bar ordering our rippers / creamators  watching and listing to the locals was like living in a episode of the Sapranos or Jersey Shore 
      There is a picture of this bar here on Roadfood's very own review (bottom pic)

        I have been to Rutt's Hut three times and didn't even know they had a bar.

            I'm guessing a gold or silver mine somewhere out West.

              sure looks like a few silver mines out in Nevada that I have seen... now I have to go back into my memory and check some photos....

                                              The Clue is "Outer' which could mean the outer boroughs of NYC.
                                              Even got the magnifying glass out to try to read the menu above the bar! All I could make out was Chicken, Hot Dogs & Ham Salad & Tuna. Glass mustard & horseradish jars on the table with lids & plastic spoons in them. Definitely a sandwich joint.
                                              The menu on the table has a red cover!

                                                Looking at the vegetation, I'd say it's in the high desert. Maybe around Reno, NV. Definitely in the West judging by the big sky.

                                                  Maybe the $17.99 referred to how much it would take to purchase the business.
                                                   
                                                  Or, maybe it's in the High Sierra's of Northern California where outlandish prices were charged to the "captive market" of gold and silver miners.

                                                    I can't help wondering if it might be Pancho Barnes' restaurant, once known as the Happy Bottom Riding Club near what is now Edwards AFB

                                                        The landscape looks like Tehachapi Ca.

                                                        Next week I might have a where am I (I am not really sure I know) New Jersey edition.

                                                          The Clue is "Outer' which could mean the outer boroughs of NYC.
                                                          Even got the magnifying glass out to try to read the menu above the bar! All I could make out was Chicken, Hot Dogs & Ham Salad & Tuna. Glass mustard & horseradish jars on the table with lids & plastic spoons in them. Definitely a sandwich joint.
                                                          The menu on the table has a red cover!

                                                          We are now on Post #35 where no one other then Michael Hoffman is old enough to recognize this 200 year old building as a restaurant .
