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?
Fall is the perfect time to enjoy one of these designer dogs:
Old Stand By
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.
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. You'll find Spike's in nearby Warwick.
New Wave Wieners
Friskie Fries: Whether you visit the downtown Providence location or one of their food trucks, you'll find more than just fries on the menu. The Dirty Daug tops their classic fries with sliced NY System weiners, meat sauce, diced onion, mustard and celery salt. This puppy's a meal in itself, so make sure you leave some time for a quick nap after devouring this.
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.
