Jimmy Buff's Italian Hot Dogs
Italian Style Hot Dog

Jimmy Buff’s is where the Italian hot dog was invented by founder James “Bluff” Racioppi. Legend has it he invented the sandwich in 1932 for friends who came over to play cards each week. An Italian hot dog, or Newark dog, is an all-beef wiener deep-fried until its outside turns crunchy. Order a double, where two dogs are tucked into half of a round loaf of chewy Italian bread. This tremendous sandwich is then topped with sauteed onions and peppers and a half-pound of crispy fried potatoes. Top it with Jimmy Buff’s spicy onion relish, if you dare. Note Throwback Thursday deals: Buy one hot dog, get a second at the price of the decade in which you were born.
