New Way Lunch

21 South St., Glens Falls, NY - (518) 792-9803
New Way Lunch has a sign outside boasting that it has been world famous since 1919. The hot-dog cookery is timeless. New Way griddle-cooks slim, non-Kosher franks and slips them into soft, warm buns. The fundamental dressing formula is a trio of mustard, diced onions, and a finely-textured beef sauce that has a peppery tang.

This is the four-ounce cheeseburger deluxe -- a decent patty with good char-cooked flavor. The menu also lists a six-ounce sirloin burger.

The New Way menu touts its hot dog as 'world famous since 1919.' Not visible in the photo is a streak of yellow mustard that is applied to the hot dog before the chili sauce and chopped onions.

This is the New Way of Glens Falls. There is another New Way in Queensbury, New York.

A strange, strange sight: ketchup being applied to a New Way hot dog. Ketchup is an anomaly in the world of chili dogs.
