Hot Grill

669 Lexington Ave., Clifton, NJ - (973) 772-6000

I have been eating at The Hot Grill since the day it opened, when I was eight years old. It was, and continues to be, not only delicious but a source of comfort and solace when life gets too much to bear. You can always walk in and order your usual, know exactly what it will cost, and what it will taste like.

The chili sauce which tops everything on the All The Way items is as good today as it was in 1960. The fries are always hot, and the gravy is just a tad spicy and typical of New Jersey.

Run by if you are in the neighborhood and grab a tee-shirt with a dancing dog; even those are well-priced and it will become one of your faves.

The flavor combination of hot dogs and chili is dazzling, but so are the textures. These deep-fried dogs have a real snap!

Note the pork-pie hat: more Hackensack than Houston!

It's a Roadfood given: a giant replica of something to eat on the roof of a restaurant almost always signals good food inside.

The Hot Grill is one of several places in this region to specialize in Texas Weiners -- a New Jersey tradition that goes back decades.
