Give me a tasty Vienna Beef hotdog anyday, smothered in onion, pickle, mustard, celery salt, etc.
Give me a Zweigles or Hoffmans from upstate New York any day. Best hot dogs you can find. Red hot with mustard, onions and meat hot sauce. Rochester style and the best there is.

I really like the New Haven stuff. Amazing pizza.

But the best pizza is from Naples (and not the one in Florida).

There are a lot of pizza stores in NYC that claim to be "NY style pizza" and trust me, it aint. It may just be a typical run of the mill pizza shop. For really good pizza, I tend to find Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn offer up some great pies.

New Haven, CT is known for it's amazing pizza. For a city its size, it's vibrance in all areas of restaurant cuisine are pretty impressive.

Also, in Stamford, CT, there is Colony Pizza on the south end. They have an amazing Hot Oil Pizza!! Unbelievable with ice cold beer. Can't get much better.

Temecula Pizza Co's the "White Lady"
Top shelf all the way - it's a thin crust with gorgonzola,
pear and pine nuts. I know it's not traditional - and I was
weened on Chicago pizza - but when something taste this good,
it's time to start new traditions. Having said that this pizza has been
around in Ca. for over 25 years but unfortunately have not seen it in
Il. or Wa.

Default CT pizza

I live in CA now but grew up in CT (New Haven county) and the pizza there is the best. Thin, chewy crust and oddly shaped at times. The pizza is so good that you don't need to pile it up with toppings.

Seek out the places with a limited menu. A good CT pizza place doesn't bother with lots of different appetizers, salads and other Italian entrees.

Oh I miss CT pizza.

I always get a great pizza when I order one in an Ohio River town, between Cincinnati and Pittsburgh. I look forward to getting one when I pass through that part of the country, and I'm never disappointed.

Default Harrisburg

Not quite NY or New Haven, but Harrisburg has some very good pizza shops. Lea's in Linglestown is some of the best I've had.
