Walter's Hot Dog Stand

USA 🇺🇸

If you have ever dreamed of getting a good hot dog from a Chinese pagoda, Westchester County has your place. Walter's is in institution, with consistently long lines and a building that is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Consider the experience the reason to come, as the dogs are fine, but just that. They split grill them here, and you can request all your condiments ahead of time. A single ($2.15, below) is a good introduction, but the short menu also includes the appropriately named double, a few different types of fries, shakes, and an egg cream.

I was also looking forward to the sweet spuds ($2.20, above right), but these are downright terrible. I am not sure a sweet potato was ever part of the process of making one of these, as a sweet orange goo comes forth when bitten into. Not my thing.

But finding a parking spot on a sunny afternoon, waiting in line with good-natured folks, and watching the orders get called is just simple fun. I am not surprised they are usually mobbed, it's a good place.
