Forget New York or Chicago.
New Jersey is the center of the hot dog world if you like hot dogs.
Hot dog trucks, carts and storefronts stuffed into Passey, Essex, Bergen and Union counties may be more than any other country --
The area of this country.
The birthplace of the Italian hot dog Newark, Jimmy Buff's, 1932.
The place of birth of a chili dog or Weiner Patterson, Texas or Plano infield, please choose (
Both cities have been honored).
My ranking is based not only on the taste and quality of hot dogs, but also on history, tradition, atmosphere and overall dining experience.
Hot dog expert John Fox told me about the new place I should go.
Look at the National hot dogs on FB.
Let the debate begin!

The owner of the Moon Dog rack used to have a cool dog cafe in Cherry Hill;
Moon Dog offers a similar compromise menu and yes you can still get Anthony Weiner.
