Anyone who remembers always being able to get a great hot dog, at ANY of the old Howard Johnsons restaurants, rejoice. Caswell's, near Route 53 and Route 18, in Weymouth, has been keeping up the tradition for the last 32 years. A premium beef frank, freshly made hot dog bun, both, grilled in real butter, till lightly toasted.The whole affair offered with a quality yellow mustard and relish, or, whatever else one wants on it. A foot long, comes alone, or as a basket with french fries or some of the best onion rings anywhere, for $3.00
Caswell's does lots of other things, including great fried seafood dishes, but it's the hot dog, that keeps me coming back.
