HAWTHORNE, N.J. -- The classic hot dog, in all its bronzed, charred perfection, holds a special place in the hearts – and stomachs -- of most Americans, especially come summer. July, in fact, is National Hot Dog Month, thanks to the designation by the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council.

Frank Talk: The grill dates back to 1979 and has been serving up Jersey comfort food with fast service and friendly staff ever since, say customers. One of its fans missed their dogs so much after moving out of state that he had his son ship him 30 Goffle’s weiners “all the way” to South Carolina.

Top This: The Goffle’s Thumann’s dogs are “rippers,” meaning that they are deep-fried until they crack open. Their Texas weiners “all the way” come with homemade chili sauce, spicy mustard and finely diced onions. You can even buy a pint or a quart of the sauce to take home. They also offer an Italian dog with potatoes, peppers and onions on a sub roll.
