    I took a side trip off 95 once to try Walter's...it wasn't worth the effort.

      I agree with the posters who aren't crazy about Walter's. Neither am I. Very overrated in my opinion. They serve a small dog that has been split and griddled. It is prepared well, but the dog itself has little flavor. It is a mix of pork, veal, and beef made for Walter's by Boars Head. Their beef franks are top of the line.

      Yeah, they are open year round. But who cares? The dogs are lousy. Totally bland and boring as are their sides, condiments, etc.

        Totally agree. When we first moved here in 2005 I was so excited as the long, long lines seemed the promise of hot dog Nirvana. So one day, although perplexed by the menu's limited topping options, we waited and waited and waited. We assumed Walter's "mix" must be the secret because the hot dogs didn't look like anything different than one can buy in the supermarket. Then we got our baloney like hot dogs with ketchup and mustard mixed together and our boring potato puffs and wondered why. I still wonder why.

          That's a good description of Walter's hot dogs. We also had high hopes based on the long lines, but they really are tasteless. Horrible, soggy fries, too. They do seem to attract consistent crowds, though.

            I'll agree too. I'll take a 6th Ave grey's papaya or Popey's dog (little shack in Morris, CT) anyday over a Walters dog.

        i thought they were open during the winter, because i've seen people there when i've gone past. their website says the hours are 11:45-6.

          Yes, I believe they are year round but they are definitely open now.
