I like hush puppies without sauce, and I like just a hint of onion mixed in.   I'm suprised at the number of people mentioning them with fish places and cocktail sauce.   I've always associated hush puppies with with BBQ joints. 
My favorite hush puppoes seem to be from South Carolina, especially Dukes and D&H.    While I prefer eastern (North) Carolina BBQ, South Carolina seems to have better hush puppies than NC, overall.    Many of the NC BBQ places have those "finger" shaped hush puppies, and they don't seem as crunchy as those from Dukes and D&H in SC.   Round, crunchy, "hardshell", with a hint of onion. .... Dukes and D&H are perfect.

I like to dip mine in cocktail sauce. However, the most important thing when I make my own is that the hush puppies need to be fried in the oil that you just fried either the fish, shrimp,& or oysters. NEVER use fresh oil!

My first exposure to hush puppies was as somewhat sweet corn fritters at the Iroquois Buffet in London, Ontario in the mid-sixties and I thought they were absolutely divine. Sadly, the Iroquois gave way to urban renewal/redevelopment within ten years.
 
Off hand I know of only a couple of places, Southern Accent and Dipamos BBQ, in Toronto that serve them but neither is that good especially considering the price they ask.

Good Hushpuppies do not need any sauce.
Henderson's Restaurant in Covington Ga. has the best I have had and I have eaten them all over the southeast.

I usually have them with fried fish, so they do get sprinkle of malt vinegar.

Other than perhaps a little butter, the thought of adding anything to good hushpuppies, I find revolting, gross and disgusting.

Agreed here as well.  No sauce, no malt vinegar, no catsup...just a nice fried pup.  Had some really good ones at Hillbilly's BBQ near Charlotte a few months ago.

Kevincad years ago when my grandmother and her sisters were alive they had to go at least 3 times a year, more for the social aspect than for the meal itself. Hendersons still has chitterlings and I believe they are 19.99 now, all you can eat. Eventhough I eat at Henderson's about 4 times a year, I have not been to a chitterling supper since 1994.

Aside from the traditional E. Carolina style I mentioned in post 9 above, I have also had two outstanding versions of the puppy.
 
1)  (no laughter, please)  Back in the 1970's the KFC on the Rt. 33 exit off I-81 in Harrisonburg, VA served golf ball sized and shaped hushpuppies as a 'freebie' side.  As a northerner I didn't even know what they were!  They were delicious!  I tried ketchup at first, then decided on later visits that they didn't need any condiment.
 
2)  High in the Andes I encountered what all here would consider to be a varient on the puppy:  about handball-size with a creamy, picante-spicy cornbread with bits of whole corn.  Truly wonderful
 
I forget the local name; I called them deep-fried huminta.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humita
