HALLOWEENIES! Yup, you heard me right. Who says that hot dogs are just summer fare? Not me, give me all the brats, saugys, wieners, frankfurters and dawgs you got. Nothin’ says fall to me like mustard-colored sweaters, so why not let this inspire your plate as well?

October is the perfect time to enjoy one of these designer dogs:

Olneyville NY System Hot Wieners: Three all the way, of course! You won’t find another thing like it — an all-beef hot dog, steamed bun, meat sauce, chopped onions and that Polish mustard. You will not regret this staple.

Crowd Pleaser

Spikes Junkyard Dogs: Man, what a menu. Want a Pizza Dog? They got it. Want a Chicago Dog? Got that too! You can even build your own like it's some sort of hot dog sundae buffet! It’s not, for the record. They’re just very hospitable people.

Weenie Wizard: It's not really a food truck, more like a cart, BUT this roving snack marvel is putting a spin on the hot dog game. That’s right, they have veggie dogs for your meatless friends! But don’t worry, you can still get your hands on an all-beef dog there too. The inventive menu changes regularly, but don’t sweat it, you can always get the basics.

Fancy Schmancy 

Wurst Kitchen: Boy oh boy, the walk-up window at Chez Pascal is going to blow you away. Their high-end take on homemade hot dogs and sausages are even prepackaged if you want to wow at your next dinner party.

Don’t get us wrong, there are plenty of places to enjoy a dog — but these guys spell frankfurter with a capital F.
