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.

Hot Diggity Grill, 204 Diamond Bridge Ave., Hawthorne, (973) 949-4905

Frank Talk: This small, family friendly place with its 1950s retro feel has a cute counter where you can sit and watch the cooks make the Thumann’s weiners and hand-formed burgers on the grill. 

Top This: What it lacks in size, Hot Diggity’s makes up for in creativity. Fav dogs with customers include the Flying Hawaiian, which is topped with onions and a pineapple and habenaro salsa; a BLT, a bacon-wrapped pup served on a sub roll with lettuce, tomato and mayo; and the Picnic Dog, a crispy bacon-wrapped weiner with barbecue sauce and home-made cole slaw and served on a toasted club roll.
