In Upstate New York, Hot Dogs Take Another State's Name.
This was a great trip. I loved just how many people went to eat hot dogs in Plattsburgh. It’s a real hot dog town... now you have to find out where Eula is buried so we can go pay our respects.
As an English person living in Australia I’m totally in awe of your hotdog world in the us …. I call this sloppy joes in our house and if we go camping they are always on the menu for thr 1st night. I make up the mince topping at home and bring it to be warmed up … franks are put on the bbq as are the buns and we have squirty American mustard on top ….. you properly dying a little bit inside !!! Lol.
Great reporting! Looking forward to getting up there for some Michigans in the fall. Any suggested cocktails to pair or is beer best? 🙂
Really enjoyed this, love hot dogs and my readers have been weighing in all summer with their favorites, the Coney Island from Detroit was mentioned, adding the Michigan-Plattsburgh to the list.
This makes me want to go on my own hot dog road trip! We spend way too much time stuck within the confines of NYC…
Also — servers who don’t eat the hot dogs? How do they resist??
The same type of hot dogs are popular in Pittsfield, MA (in the Berkshires), with rivalry between the Hot Dog Ranch and Teo’s.
Excellent hot dog reporting as usual! 🌭
You must have a cast iron stomach. Killer 🧅!
Late arriving to this post Robert and Mary Kate but terrific writing and reporting!
Love the hot dog history! Looks so good too.
Only a matter of time until that hockey-playing hot dog sign is hanging in your apartment.
What an excellent trip and report, thank you! I suspect if you lived in Texas you'd be all over fruit and meat kolaches with similar verve and panache.
