Hot Dogs, Merrimack Valley

Other than Lawtons, where can I get good dogs (steamed, boiled, grilled, whatever) within say a twenty minute drive of Methuen? Thanks y'all!
There is usually a guy with a cart hanging out in front of the Methuen Post Office selling steamed hot dogs. I haven't seen him yet this year, but I haven't been looking for him either. I think his dogs are essems.
Not much other than Lawtons unless you want to go into Cedar Crest in Lawrence. I like the way they grill their dog, with a side of beans and cole slaw.
Also in Haverhill I noticed a guy yesterday across the street from the Post Office in downtown.
Another place in Haverhill that opened last year on River Street is Daly's Dog's. I never stopped last year, but it's in a parking lot of an Electricians, and they have a awning with some picnic tables.
Always the best lunch deal going. Just about a twenty minute ride from Methuen north to Costco's on the Dan'll Webster Hwy. $1.62 includes a drink. You can't beat it, and you do not need a membership card to eat. But it's worth the price of membership at the rate groceries are going lately.
I do not personally eat hot dogs but growing up in Lowell, all I ever heard about was Elliots-they have been around forever and I know they have a few locations-but the downtown Lowell location is the original-and a little tricky to find b/c it is a little hidden, but people seem to love it there!
I did find a website. Hope that helps! And happy dining :-)
