No, I got it right in the city. I thought I was eating a ball park dog from the grocery store that I microwaved.

I wouldn't even put a Sabrett in my top 5. NYC hot dogs are average at best. NYC is great at many things, but not hot dogs. I've had better dogs in Rochester, Buffalo, Chicago, Boston, Philly.

I would add Syracuse to the list too, as I agree completely. Hoffman's are great, and Heid's of Liverpool makes some damn good hot dogs.

I can't believe some of you people are putting cheeses on a hot dog and then arguing about it.

As for those of you arguing about the tastes of hot dogs, ever stop and think maybe we all have different taste buds and perception of taste? My wife and I for instance buy Nathans and Zweigels when we go shopping, and honestly they're 2 completely different types of hot dog with their own unique tastes and character. I can't say one is better than the other because they're just too different. And lets not forget that Zweigels makes a few different types of dogs. When someone says hot dog X is better than a Zweigels, are you talking about a pop-open, beef frank, etc.?

Now for the love of God stop putting all that $hit on hot dogs and stick to the basics, or else you're doing nothing but ruining a good thing.

They have to add so much to actually add flavor to an inferior hot dog. I can eat a Zweigles (any) plain and it's delicious. But give me a little mustard, onions and hot sauce and it's about the best dog you can have.

It's all good, don't take anything personal on this site!!

Have a good day!!

Hmm, that's odd, the last Zweigels pop-open that I ate definitely had snap when you bit in to it.

Also, not all dogs have that snap genius. Nathans would be one of them. I personally find them delicious, and they don't have the same casing that zweigels do. But because they dont have the snap, I guess theyre not a good dog?

A proper Nathans does have a snap. If you buy it from a supermarket and make it yourself it might not. The same goes for the others based on their preparations. My wife prefers Nathans considering she was born in Brooklyn (Coney Island). I am from Queens originally and my parents from the Bronx and I prefer Sabbretts alot more than any other. The others just don't compare. A good hot dog also blends well with toppings and is not overtaken by them.
