Walters re visit

A while ago I had made several enemies by putting a post saying that Walters Hot Dog Stand was terrible.  Well I just went back in all fairness to try it once again.  Based on the fact that after 3 singles with mustard I would have to say I retract my earlier opinion and agree that this place does have a certain charm and taste to it.   I do give it a well deserved thumbs up and humbly say sorry.
 
The only thing I don't remember is I thought they had coals they cooked over but I all I saw was a grill with no coals around.  Does anyone know if they have changed the cooking fixtures or maybe I am confusing this place with another place.

    I was to Walter's once about 6 or 7 years ago. The dogs were prepared on a griddle that is sprayed with some mystery substance (Pam?). I believe the dogs are still prepared the same way. Walter's has quite a reputation, but in my opinion is overrated.

    The dogs are made by Boars Head, but are a mix of beef, pork, and veal. Very mild, bordering on bland. The dogs are small, and from what I remember skinless. They are split open and grilled on both sides. Left on the griddle for a sufficient time and prepared fairly well, but the dogs are too mild. They have a unique mustard that you buy from them. It has tiny pieces of relish in it. Pretty good. The dogs aren't bad, but not worth going out of your way for.

    I was born & lived most of my life in Westchester County, where Walter's is located. Somewhere in the early '80s, a group of us visited the place. The pagoda & the relish are interesting, but I have to agree with John Fox about the dog itself. I also found it bland & underseasoned. Bottom line...I lived in Westchester another 20+ years and never felt the urge to return.

    This place has been closed for a remodel, and has just recently reopened. It has also stirred up quite a hornet's nest on Chowhounds. That tread makes most of the exchanges here seem very civilized.

    Walter's rules. They grill their dogs in butter I think. The dogs are a combination of veal and pork. I love them! I think they have a great flavor to them. I love their mustard as well. It's a far trip for me, so when I go up I buy 30 or 40 dogs at a time.

    30 or 40 dogs? Usually will last 2 days.. when we had 3 people in our house. They come home on a Saturday and some get eaten in the car on the way back, when they get home there may be 30 or so left.
     
    Now that my Mom and her Husband moved to Hawaii I don't order as many. But last year I sent them 10 or 15 by USPS Priority Mail with some Mustard. My Mom's Husband is originally from Mamaroneck and his Aunt used to date Walter.
