Top (Hot) Dog

I'm a pizza guy first and a hamburger guy second but to complete the holy trinity I'd nominate Crif Dogs (an homage to Rutt's Hut in NJ which I haven't been to), Westville for Niman Ranch dogs, Papaya King, Gray's Papaya, Chelsea Papaya, etc., Big Daddy's Diner for a footlong, Old Town Bar, Nathan's Famous Coney Island location only, Sarge's, 2nd Avenue Deli (please reopen), Katz's, Hallo Berlin cart, Zum Schneider, Lederhosen, and Mandler's. I didn't like F&B and I doubt the Shake Shack's are any better than their disappointing burgers. The best? Tie between 2nd Avenue, Original Nathans, Katz's and Original Papaya King.
