I think I forgot to mention that I visited The "Likkers" ice cream and hot dog shop in Kingston, NY a few weeks ago. I dont know what kind of dog he serves, but it was probably about 8 to the pound. (When i asked he said, "We get our dogs over in Greenport." I dont know what that means? The chili sauce was OK; I suspect it came out of a can without any "improvements". Not really worth the trip, except for the ice cream.

Cheers, John

I think you mentioned it but they were closed or something at the time. I don't think they are known for their hot dogs but apparently someone likes them. As for the chili sauce, the stuff I had was not canned, possibly he is cheating now? When I was there the day or so after they opened the chili sauce was a mix between Texas Lunch in Wallkill, NY and Dallas Weiners. I had slaw on mine too, noone else in the area I know offers that. I haven't been back since.

Hello again ,

Great report on the Hudson Valley spots .
The only one we did not hit on the last Hudson Valley Hot Dog Tour was Dallas Weiners in Kingston .
All reports coming out of there are very positive so a visit this summer is not out of the question .

Another Hot Dog Cart trailer is between south of Middletown on the way to Goshen on right . Great dogs also .

I stopped by Worlds Best Hot Dogs and Hamburgers today and was greeted with a locked door and a sign stating Sorry, We Are Only Available For Catering.

There is however another place opening up on 9W soon. He is tossing around whether he is going to offer Sabrett or Thumann's. It would be nice to have a Thumann's dog around here, I don't know of anyone in the Mid Hudson Valley that offers a Thumann's n/c or skinless hot dog.

There is a hot dog truck called NY Dugout Dogs located at Rte 32 south and Gardnertown Rd., Newburgh, NY. He serves Sabrett n/c and Sabrett hot sausage.

If you are driving up Rte. 28 toward Phoenicia, NY, check out Captain Hot Dog at the Mt. Pleasant rest stop. He serves Sabrett n/c 8/1 dog and has a medium heat chili among other toppings. Closed Wednesdays.

I was born and raised in Kingston, and remember well, the Dallas Hot Weiner shop- back in the day there were 2 hot dog shops- Texas Hot Weiners and Dallas Hot Weiners- sounds like they may be now owned by the same family- my husband was raised eating their dogs and when we went back 8 years ago for a short visit- he had lunch/snack three days in a row at the North Front St location. Since then, a close family friend of ours has given me the recipe- I make a batch about 6 times a year and freeze it- and when he has to have a fix, out comes the sauce- the buns and Boars Head franks get steamed and he's a happy camper. Funny, but living now in Dallas, we have yet to find any dogs here with the "Dallas Hot Weiner" sauce!

Gosh...that's disheartening about World's Best (in Newburgh, N.Y.) going out of business. He had such a good product, and a nice little store. Too bad. Hate to lose a good one.

Ive lived in Dallas for years and I have never seen a Dallas hot...Anything!
As a matter of fact, the only hot dogs I know of in Dallas are at "Wild About Harry's" on Knox Street. I don't think Dallas is a hot dog kind of town.
But, you can get Sabrett dogs at Central Market. With or without the natural casing.

My first time to Dallas Hot Weiners was about 52-53 years ago. The original was not at it's present location. Weiners was the only thing the old guy sold besides soft drinks. We use to go back once a year to visit my parents and always had lunch there a couple of times.

For many years there's a hot dog truck that's been at the intersection of Route 100 and Route 134 in Millwood, NY (Westchester County) called CHARCAEL'S HOT DOGS.
I pass it it almost every day on my way home from work. But I've never sampled his dogs, because if I'm going home I'm on the way to my supper.
Anybody ever stopped there?

Hot Dog King – Thank you for the up-date on Worlds Best -- what a shame!
We’re doing a very mini-tour tomorrow with our grandkids from Australia. Had planned to end it at Worlds Best. We’ll now change our schedule.

hello all ,

I should 've read this thread before venturing out today. I went by Worlds Best in Newburgh today and Hot Dog King is correct it is closed and a sign on the door stating they will be doing catering only .
It looks as though the equipment is still there as chairs were up on tables .
So I swung by Petes in Newburgh for two number #5 's . raw onions and mustard .
Good dog , and service .

Guess Worlds could not make a go of it . We will miss it as we did have it on our 1st Hudson Valley tour earlier this year.

Hello, Hot Dog King, glad to see you back on the boards with updated hot dog places.

I mentioned to Benzee recently that it might be nice to get a small tour of Soul Dog, Andy's place, and Big W BBQ together sometime in July- are you interested?

Kozel (see the forum Big W BBQ) has suggested July 12 for a visit to Big W along with a factory tour of a company that builds modular homes.
Unfortunately, that date doesn't work for me.

Cheers, John

John,
I am interested, just name the date.

BTW, have you been down rte 32 recently around Maple Hill (between Bloomington and Rosendale)? A month ago there was a guy selling hot dogs next to the granite countertop shop, it looks like they spent a few dollars setting up a fence and picnic tables but I never see anyone there anymore.

Re: CHARCAEL'S HOT DOGS. great hot dog stand and now they've opened a indoor joint in Hawthorne just off the saw mill at marble avenue exit (well actually first light turn right, down to the next light right again and they're about a 1/3 mile on the left). Great dogs and even greater hamburger / cheeseburgers. Planning on posting a full out review with pics at some point in the future. When I get the address and other details I'll post them to this thread. But if your in the area of the truck or the restaurant give em a try, you won't be disappointed.

Here's a good article on it, written for the Smithsonian, I believe. It attributes it to Paterson, N.J. A good read.

Very interesting. But, I don't understand why they just didn't call it, "Greek sauce".

The theory, or lore, if you will, is that the original purveyors wanted to imbue their hot dogs---already a common staple in America---with an exotic identity.

In industrial Paterson, the wide open spaces of Texas provided that fantasy cachet. And that, as they say, is the rest of the story...maybe.

Despite what the article cited above says, Texas hot Dog Sauce here in the Hudson Valley has no tomato in it. I had long thought it did have a tomato base, but learned better from one of our Roadfooders ( an ex-HV resident, now living in the Dallas TX area) who posted a recipe that really works and has no tomato in it. I made a small batch based on his recipe last week and it was very very close to what they serve at Kingston's famous Dallas Hot Wieners.

Also, it is my opinion that the sauce was originally developed to disguise the taste of an inferior hot dog, and, at least here in the Hudson Valley, the quality of the hot dog has always been secondary to the quality of the sauce. Also, I've never seen a hot dog deep fried in any Texas Hot Wiener joint around here - they are steamed and grilled on one of those rolling grills and served on a steamed roll. Deep frying seems confined to North Jersey and some places in Connecticut. Also, the order of applying the dressings is: mustard, sauce, diced raw onion. And an order for them around here goes, "Two with everything".

Cheers, John

Thanks, pmrkr2-
I have to admit Charcaels's does not look very appealing from the looks of the truck.
But I will try a couple of dogs there soon, and I will share my 2 cents worth of opinions.

That picture of Captain Hot Dog should be published somewhere.

They are all good but I think that one tops.

mland, could you post your recipe here, unless it's top secret.
I posted mine a few months ago and would be interested in seeing how
yours compares to mine.

I took all of the pictures except the Coney Island and Soul Dog, both were sent to me. Coney Island Restaurant is next door to a bus depot so whenever I am there with a camera, there are buses and loads of people blocking my view. I believe Coney Island Lou sent me that pic. Soul Dog was sent to me by the owner.

Here are some others that come to mind although I am not sure if these carts are open on a regular basis:

There is a hot dog stand on rte 28 near Margaretville, NY called Grandma's. The stand is a small RV setup for food vending.

There is a hot dog cart on rte 28 in Boiceville, NY, just past 28A, called Matt's Hot Dogs. He sells Sabrett with the basic toppings.

Olive General Store has an electric Boar's Head push cart outside their store. They are on Rte 28 just before the Olive Bridge entrance to the Shokan resevoir. Yes, they have Boar's Head hot dogs with all the stuff including a homemade chili sauce. The chili is different and was made up of beef, black beans and other typical chili ingredients. I would say that the chili from this place and Captain Hot Dog ranks the best for the resevoir region.

This past weekend I spotted someone selling hot dogs at a turn-around across from the Suzuki motorcycle shop on Rte 28 just outside of Kingston. I am not sure where that is, Kingston, Hurley or what but it's about 1/4 mile from the Hickory BBQ!

What about hod dog joints on this side of the Hudson River(Eastern), other than Soul Dog?
There is a place on Rte 82 in the town of Hopewell Junction, called "In the dog house". Also there is a sweet lady on the corner of Old Rte 9 and Myers Corners rd, which is good.

The famous old Texas Lunch which was for years (about 1930-1970) located on the corner of Main and Cherry Streets in Poughkeepsie, is still in business and serving up a traditional Texas Hot Wiener in a shop out on Rt 55, a couple of miles from its original location.

Hot Dog King
Thank you for this forum. I have been collecting hot dog vendors throughout the country and will add what you have to my database. I would like permission to use your pictures on my site.

You have accomplished what I have been trying to explain to the vendors. I want to give recognition to the little guy with the pushcart on the side of the road. I feel a photo of their stand would help all to find them.

Please keep up the good work.

Spring is in the air and hot dog vendors are cleaning up their carts and trailers preparing for another season!

As some of you have already seen on FB, I have started a preliminary report and will post locations and pics.

The report will include Orange, Ulster, Dutchess and Greene county, New York.

Just want to add a heads-up here....my husband Michael and I are opening the Pirates Lakeside Grill on Nassau Lake (266 Country Route 7) in Rennselaer County this June. It's an old hot dog/hamburg place that began during WW II but's been closed for a couple of years.

We're planning on serving 7 different dogs and 4 different burgers, including some locally raised, grassfed beef options.

This week, we rebuild the deck that hangs over the lake and paint our new picnic tables. 
 
You can check out our facebook page (PIRATES LAKESIDE GRILL) to see a picture of the place as it looks now, before sprucing up.
 
My husband has criss-crossed the country with good maps and the Stern's ROAD FOOD books at his side. Now we get to make a dream come true with a roadfood place of our very own.

There is a place on Rte 82 in the town of Hopewell Junction, called "In the dog house". Also there is a sweet lady on the corner of Old Rte 9 and Myers Corners rd, which is good.

I did spot the one vendor on rte 9 last fall but was not able to stop.  They will be added to the list as well as any others I spot.

I checked out Nicks Hot Dogs II today, located on Rte 17K, Newburgh, NY.  She has her new truck stand parked in the Furniture Warehouse lot offering Sabrett NC and Hot Links with all the trimmings.

Happy Dog on Rte 211 in Montgomery, NY was out today.  His push cart is outside the village, before OC airport/ across from rte 416.  Offers Sabrett NC and basic trimmings.

More to come when the weather is warmer...

NAAMikey,
I have not been over that way yet.  Today is a prime example, it may be too cold yet to open a stand?  She is on the list though as well as a few others over there.

We visited Soul Dog in Poughkeepsie yesterday, after a too long absence. I had one with "Soul Dog" sauce and one with their unique hot peanut sauce. The "Soul Dog sauce is their version of Texas hot sauce - quite different from the usual Hudson Valley type, and very good. the peanut sauce is thin, brownish red, peppery hot, and really does a lot for a hot dog. I believe they sell Sabrett's hot dogs, but it is not important to me - it all about the sauce. 

In Soul Dog's short block of Main Street is a Jamaican Restaurant, a Pizza joint, and a well known old fashioned Italian restaurant, Albanese's. That could make a neat mini-tour in itself.

BTW: just down Main Street a few blocks is a small park on the riverfront - on a nice day it is a great spot to enjoy your Soul dogs.
(Soul Dog is a comfortale and spotless place to eat-in.) We discovered that if you tune your radio to 95.3fm while parked in the park you will be entertained  by a guy playing the Mid Hudson Bridge - and it is pretty entertaining. The guy beats on the  cables and railings and towers of the bridge with various hammers and sticks and produces credible, if somewhat offbeat, music.

Cheers, John

Susie,

Are the Usinger's dogs you serve their all beef franks? Their German style beef/pork dogs are very good, but their angus beef franks are outstanding. One of my top 2 favorite beef dogs. They are unavailable in N.J. I have to order them by mail. If you serve them I might make a stop soon.

John,
 
This season we are carrying Usinger's beef/pork weiner, their Polish smoked sausage, and their 1/4 lb. knackwurst (which is also beef and pork.)
 
We are considering the all beef weiner for next season, and your high marks for the product are encouraging! Stay tuned for updates and thank you.
 
Susie

For you hot dog lovers out there, I'm very excited to tell you that our road food place, PIRATES LAKESIDE GRILL in Nassau, NY, is back for our second season. Our menu includes Usinger's hot dogs, Polish sausage, and knackwurst; Zweigle's whites and reds; Nathan's; as well as a great fish fry, local, organic grassfed beef burgers and bison burgers, and homemade chili!
 
For this season, we built a beautiful deck that extends right out over the lake for your road food dining pleasure. 
 
Last season, we had, in addition to the usual cars, trucks, and motorcycles, people came for our hospitality and food on horseback, on a tractor, on ATVs, by motorboat, canoe, and kayak. Also on foot from our neighborhood----we are the only retail business on the lake!
 
My husband Michael and I would be honored to have RoadFood visitors to our establishment!

Did you add the Usinger's beef dogs? Or are you going with their beef/pork franks?

John, we've still got the beef/pork mix from Usinger's.  We've also got their Polish sausage and their Knackwurst, both of which are awesome.
 
This year, we're selling a lot of local, organic grassfed beef burgers and organic local bison burgers. I'm really proud of our menu.
 
I just got a recipe for fabulous bacon cookies----yes, bacon cookies! They go swell with a hot dog or burger and I'm gonna try and up the quantities so I can sell 'em along with our soft serve for dessert.

Stopping for Frankfurters on a Secret Mission

 
 MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. --- (Combined Dispatches) -- Greetings to all my hot dog enthusiast friends and all the ships at sea.
 
 Recently ensconced in the Western Catskills on a secret mission, a brief escape to Middletown, N.Y., brought me to Coney Island Restaurant, home of the much lauded chili dog. Actually, more the chili, not as much the dog.
 
  Along with the memories of past junkets to this rather famous hot dog stop, I had two dogs all the way (chili, mustard and chopped raw onion). The waitress informed that the grilled hot dogs I was served were Tyson’s. ‘Gee, they’ve changed a couple times in the last few years,’ I thought to myself. It was Tobin’s 1st Prize when first I crossed the Island’s threshold.
 
  “Tyson’s?” I asked, “I didn’t know they made hot dogs.” She assured me that they did … both pork and beef. I’m assuming the pork dog also contained beef, or perhaps chicken or turkey. I’ll ask Q to look that up.
 
  In any case, I ordered the pork, which I prefer when going either the chili, Coney, or Texas Weiner route, or, for that matter, any of the various and controversial permutations in-between.
 
  The dog, probably a skinless, 10-to-a-lb., was OK, nothing special, but proved a suitable saddle for the iconic chili. You know, that cinnamon, cumin, or whatever it is that echoes of “Secret Recipe” in chili dog-serving venues throughout the Hudson Valley, Eastern Pennsylvania, and parts of N.J. Real good. So was the service.
 
  This is still a nice place, despite its location near a bus station populated by folks that suggest how your brother-in-law might turn out if he doesn’t get a job….its hospitableness and Hot Dog Landmark status key reasons for a visit….and yes, the chili. It’d be really great if they served, let’s say, a Thumann’s, or a Hoffman’s, or a Sahlen. But then, so would World Peace.
 
  Prior to that visit, a surprise had awaited at the Nathan’s franchise in the Galleria Mall in Middletown….a really good, perfectly prepared frankfurter….a Nathan’s frankfurter as good as any you’ll get at the original spot in Coney Island….the one in Brooklyn. No sound or smell of the surf, though.
 
  I have long held that Nathan’s is the most lax fast food chain insofar as overseeing their franchisees. I’ve been to several that, well…..just weren’t up to snuff…that could have been cleaner, better managed, and more possessing of the pizzazz and soul that a true hot dog enthusiast is looking for in a purveyor of the wiener.
 
  But, this was different.
 
  The large, corner hot dog stand in the food court was spic ‘n’ span, the help bright eyed and enthusiastic (from my angle, I couldn’t see if they were bushy-tailed), and the dogs on the flat grill were apparently there for just the right amount of time. They were of the natural casing variety. As my friend Sam, a noted private eye, might have said, I didn’t need X-ray vision to see the snap.
 
  I ordered a chili dog. It was quite good, possessing just the right, anticipated explosion of flavor and served good and hot, although the basic, medium dark brown chili, while tasty enough in a rather usual way, was curious in that it was loaded with what I assume was beef….almost as much in weight as a quarter of the dog….which was, I imagine, an 8-to-a-lb. While I don’t quite like that much ground meat in my chili, I guess the value-conscious consumer looking to fill up might not complain too heartily. Things are tough all around.
 
  I had thoughts of making it to Pete’s in Newburgh, N.Y., one of my 5 favorite hot dog emporia in the whole wide world, but it was getting late. I was, after all, on a secret mission of the utmost importance, and I feared I’d arrive at Pete’s after closing. How would it look?
 
 Besides, there was a bakery in Livingston Manor that called out to me earlier in the day as I slingshotted down 17 toward Middletown in the Bearcat.
 
  The Catskills in summer, just a couple hours before it gets dark, have their very own temperature like no other in the land … a special, comfortable coolness that brings a haunting happiness to anyone who has traversed its back roads, and even its highways when they are not filled with vacationers going to and fro. It is a splendid loneliness, especially enjoyed in a roadster….the tall, ultra-green trees darkening a very special way to visually declare the enchantment. You are alone, but with everyone. It’s the only time I allow myself to be transcendental.
 
  I pulled my handbrake up at the bakery. The blueberry streusel tart and  cup of coffee from a specially made, fresh pot of coffee, even though they were closing in half an hour, just about made up for forgoing Pete’s. She also had a nice smile.
 
  “What year Stutz is that, a ‘20 or ‘21?”
 
   “Why, hey, a ’20 … not bad. Great streusel, too.”
 
 “Yeah, ’20, figures, still right hand drive. We’ll have blueberry pie by the slice tomorrow.”

 So that’s it for now, friends. Keep your eyes on this space for more hot dog news as the Fates allow it to happen.
 
  The Bear

I was wondering if Pam's Bun N Run is the same stand that was just outside of the town in 1980? I thought the stand I used to frequent was called Sis's Bun N Run and it was great! I was always trying to figure the chili recipe with no success. I am still looking for the chili recipe. If any one could help I would appreciate it. Thanks.
