      WHY is the Star Ledger SO OBSESSED with Hot Dogs ?!?!?!?

      Every time I pick up the food section or weeeknd section, it seems like the "Munch Mobile" or some other review or article about hot dogs and the best places to get hot dogs is ALL they ever write about !!!!!

      Do we not have any other food in 'Joizy except hot dogs? I understand its summer, but PLEASE write about something else and stop with the hot dog articles !!!

        It's was a series. They did articles on all sorts of other stuff, but the hotdogs were a running thread.

        (Full disclosure - I work for the Ledger. But as a vegetarian, I couldn't care less about hotdogs.)

        Took the family to Amazing Hot Dogs for lunch Saturday. Okay, it's hot dogs, and a lot of people feel strongly about their dog...however, these were terrific - and they have a lot of seemingly odd hot dog specials, that were really good. I had a "Reuben Dog" - swiss, sauerkraut, caraway seeds and russian...outstanding. Their fries are excellent - a fresh "beach" fries variety. They deep fry their dogs, which I think they get in Newark...

          I think the reason we all feel passionately about dogs is cause the are "food of the people". For 1-2 dollars a dog, you can get a taste of a regional cuisine that the people of that area have made "theirs". Chicago dog's in Chicago, Newark's Italian dogs, Detroit coney islands, they're all indicitive of a people and a place.
