If you order rippers, you can expect very dried out hot dogs. If that's the texture you enjoy, then that's fine. But, you really do not get to experience the taste of that hot dog because a lot of the plumpness, subtle bologna like taste, and juice texture are gone. You can't even experience that first natural casing crunch. Instead, you are chomping down into a spongy, crisp and dry textured over done hot dog.
I wish Larry would have just tried one of their regular deep fried hot dogs with mustard.....Then if you don't like it, fine..Complain. Needless to say, Larry is in the minority. This place is loved by many, many Garden Staters..Not me, incidently. But they cannot all be wrong.
For me, if I need a NJ deep fried dog and I am not near Ft. Lee or Rt. 46 in Clifton, I'm gonna still go to Rutt's.
Careful when you ask for a ripper...It really is not for most peoples' tastes. I don't feel it does justice to the over all NJ deep fried dog experience.
I hope Larry gives it one more chance. Then..fine. Trash it.
