Sometimes just a dog will do and Captain's Paul's hit the spot - dead center.
J and I stopped here for lunch today and were impressed. I ordered a "Full Box" which is fireman's lingo for sending out everything from the station house. Here at Captain Paul's its a steamed Hatfield dog with a generous helping of sauerkraut, chopped sweet onions, relish and your choice of mustard. At $2, it's a steal and next time I'm ordering two.
Captain Paul, a retired Trenton fire captain, and his wife bought the former Italian ice stand a year ago and have since expanded the menu to include dogs and other items. Everything from the kitchen is named for a member of the service industry (troopers, general, EMT, paramedic, etc).
J had the General which is a two buffalo chicken tenders with a nice tangy sauce and blue cheese on a torpedo roll. Filling and good.
They also have an extensive selection of fried sides, hard and soft ice creams, shakes, sundaes and Italian ice. I had an order of onion rings and a chocolate shake. Both were very good.
There are picnic tables in their side yard and nice furniture with umbrellas out front to accomodate everyone. Plenty of parking as well.
The place is on Princeton Pike - out the back entrance of the Lawrence Shopping Center (plaza with Burlington Coat Factory off Route 1 Business,south).
We look forward to frequent visits.
