Louie's Foot Long Hot Dogs

69 Grand Island Boulevard, Tonawanda, NY - (716) 877-9701
Louie's opened in 1951, and you'll still find the original Louie behind the counter, asking how you'd like your dog dressed. "The works" includes mustard, relish, ketchup, chopped onions and a pickle spear. There are some lovely shaded picnic tables along the edge of the park nearby, a fine place to enjoy your Buffalo lunch.

Grilled or fried bologna isn't unique to WNY, but we never see it where we live and we always find ourselves drawn to bologna when it makes a menu appearance.

First timers should probably get the fresh cut fries plain.  And, sure, the gravy is goopy and commercial.  But it tastes great on fries!

There's an enclosed patio in Louie's, but we prefer to eat at these tables just off Louie's parking lot.

Dandelion greens are not unusual in Italian cooking, but we'd never seen them as a fast-food garnish before.  In Italian-accented Western New York shops, though, you still might fin.
