if you haven't seen the Roadfood homepage. I've been there a few times and it's a great place to grab a few dogs. As mentioned they serve a nice sized Boars Head all beef natural casing frank. It is 7 to a lb and served dirty water style. This dog is great prepared in water as it has a tight casing that keeps in the flavorful juices.
Most dirty water dogs are much smaller, ranging from 10 to 12 to a lb and cost more than what Pete's charges. Boars Head is also a change of pace from the much more common Sabrett. One time I was there I noticed a table of older men who were long time customers. I asked which dog they preferred, The Temple Hill dog or Boars Head. Boars Head was the unanimous choice. Pete's is one of my top three favorite places to get a dirty water dog along with Jerry's in Elizabeth, N.J. and Dee's in Roselle Park, N.J.
