I went to Detroit for Thanksgiving and, due to time constraints and family commitments, never ate at a Coney Island hotdog restaurant. When I got home to
Boston I got so hungry thinking about coneys that I turned to the internet for information about hotdog restaurants in Boston.

I found that (according to Yahoo Yellow pages) there are no restaurants within 20 miles of Boston with any of the following in their name: 'hotdog', 'hot dog',
'coney', 'nathan'.

The good news is that there are some coney island hot dog restaurants in the greater Boston, but the closest are in Attleboro, Taunton, Worcester, and Fall River.

Discussion questions:

Where do you go out for a good hotdog in Boston?

Where are there coney island or the exotic (to a detroiter) Chicago style hotdogs to be had in Boston?

Final note: Famous Weiners, Scituate RI, on RT 6 about 10 miles west of Providence is worth a stop. Famous Pizza right next door will not disappoint either.
