Walters re visit Thu, 02/19/09 9:32 AM (permalink)
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.
