In my youth, I had a favorite hot dog joint, now long since closed. In Tarrytown, NY, there's a relatively new, tiny little hot dog joint called Lubins Links. The place is about 8 feet wide, with no place to sit except sidewalk tables out front, and a small enclosed area outside in the back. However, the great hotdogs make up for that! They have a dozen or more different combos, all with homemade toppings like chili, sauerkraut, and really good spiced roasted onions.
Their soft pretzels are good, hot and fresh from the oven. My favorite lunch is a Lubins link with chili, kraut and onions, plus a soft pretzel, for $5.00 even, including tax!
