Serious Eats just did an article on regional drinks that go with regional Hot Dogs. Many of the drinks and Hot dogs have been mentioned on here but it was nice to see them collected in one place. If your favorite is not listed, go ahead and add it! Nice Pictures!

Buttermilk?
 
We don't have a regional drink so it's a root beer for me unless I'm at a Dodger game which requires a beer.
 
I believe those listed to be more of a regional drink rather than drinks ordered with hot dogs, specifically.

Occasionally I'll have a beer (lager or pilsener) or Dr. Pepper with a hot dog, but I prefer an unsweetened iced tea with lemon if I can get it.

For years, when I would go to Heid's in Syracuse, the beverage of choice was chocolate milk with my double coney  (which to Central New Yorkers is a white hot dog)  I would never have thought of ordering anything else!

I was surprised to find chocolate milk the drink of choice at a few New England places, most notably George's in Worcester. When a little old lady in front of me said she had coming there for 50 years and recommended the chocolate milk, I followed her advice. I liked it.
 
I found Moxie to be vile. To me it would be like washing down a dog with a bottle of Robitussin. Ack.

Well, as my favourite dog was always the chili dog from the old Dog House, Jr. in Gulfport, MS, the drink of choice was a foregone conclusion. A Barq's in a frosty glass bottle. Still prefer a root beer with a chili dog, it's just so hard to find a good one, these days.

Good point.  One of the post-story comments mentioned that Green River goes with a Chicago Style Dog but otherwise that particular regional hot dog was completely ignored, which kind of takes the "Serious" out of "Serious Eats".

I'm the polar opposite... I can't stand the coneys and I can't drink milk anymore.
I'll get a double frank with mustard and kraut and an order of fries when I go to Heid's.

When I first saw this thread I thought to myself that I don't have a particular beverage that I order with HD's but as a kid there was a hot dog stand called Taylor's (still open I believe) in Visalia, Ca that had several flavors of bottled soda. I used to love a strawberry soda with my chili dog and believe it was a brand called Sun Crest which I haven't seen for years.

I like a good Milkshake or Malt, Chocolate or Vanilla, either one, with 2, 1/4 lb. Chili Dogs!

I want the pineapple drink I always had with my hot dogs at Jimmy's in Savin Rock. And if not that I'll have a white birch beer, please. Preferably from Foxon Park.

With your location and user name I'm betting you already know about Edward's Drive-In on S. Sherman @ Raymond.  I enjoy their root beer. Never had a coney dog there, but they're 99ยข on Mondays.
I've never been to the Dog House, but I have relatives nearby, so thanks for the tip.

There's only one reason why they could have possibly associated Buttermilk with eating Hot Dogs in New Jersey, and that's because of Hot Dog Johnny's, which has served them with buttermilk for over 60 years. Other than that I don't know of any other place in NJ that serves hot dogs with butter milk, certainly not in my house.
 
As for me, and many others in North Jersey, being as how we are part of the "Birch Beer Belt" (along with Northeast PA),  ain't nothin' like an ice cold Birch Beer  with a hot dog.

If coffee milk is not available, birch beer comes in second for me. 
 
As a previously poster suggested, a bottle of Robitussin would be preferable to Moxie.

At North Park Pool refreshment stand - - 14 miles North of Pittsburgh, PA - - a hot dog arrived on a steamed bun with a 'cord' stripe of yellow mustard from a squeeze bottle and was accompanied by a cup of Reymer's Blend that was frozen to an icey consistency in the ice cream freezer in a big glass gallon jug....  Absolute nirvana...

That's some "serious eats alright".

I personally like pink lemonade if not lemon ice tea to go with anything 'meaty' so to say.
