Hey Uncle Vic ,
You are telling me ? I thought I had more than 100 also , but what can you do , I'm just happy to have found you all . It is a pleasure to be part of the roadfood community .
As for my second visit to Petes .
The following Wed. I visited about ten minutes before Noon . Walked right in , no line . Ordered the same three dogs from the week before .
Vastly superior toppings this time .
The #1 still remained fair as the kraut taste did not come through , but the mustard , alas there was mustard on that there dog !!
The #3 with the chili was an outstanding dog this time around . Plenty of chili sauce , not overpowering the dog but just the right taste for me .
The #5 was once again a good dog , raw onions tasted fab.
Second visit as far as toppings go would bring the total experience to a very good .
As far as prices , under $2 per dog with toppings . Good value
So to recap , first visit was fair , second very good .
Overall a good recomendation for Petes in Newburgh . Try to avoid arriving during the lunch hour if you have a choice , if you do stick with the plain dog , maybe add mustard as the toppings can be hit or miss when it is busy.
I would add this place to an Upstate NY dog tour to go along with Coney Island in Middletown , I would just time the visit to avoid the lunch hour rush .
