Hot Dogs are unique to North Jersey. They are the hot
dog of my youth. Rumor has it
that Jimmy Buff's invented them. An Italian hot dog
goes on a quarter of a large roll of Italian bread (sort
of a fat pita). The dog is grilled and then topped
with sautéed onions, peppers and potatoes. You can
also order a double, which is two dogs on a half a
roll. That's an Italian Sausage Sandwich next to the
dog. Same principle, but sausage instead of a hot
dog. I actually prefer the Italian Sausage.
The various greases pair off better.
There are a few Jimmy Buff's around North Jersey. I
happened upon this one, in North Arlington.
