Nathan's Hot Dogs in T.O?
Does anybody know where I can get packages pf Nathan's Hot Dogs in natural casings here in T.O? These to me are by far the tastiest hot dogs out there in my opinion but I've only purchased them in the states. Hebrew National are a close second.
Sob. Moan. Kvetch.
Don't even think about it. You can't. With or without casings. Not now and probably not ever.
Ditto for Hebrew National. Nortown was importing the skinless Hebrew Nationals, but stopped when we had the mad cow scare. No plans to resume that I know of.
The closest sources of skinless Nathans and Hebrew National dogs are in Niagara Falls NY at the Wegman's near the big outlet mall and at the Tops Supercenter next to Target on Niagara Falls Blvd. The closest source of these dogs with casings may very well be the New York City area.
I LOVE Nathans.
You can get a very tasty Nathan dog at Johnny Rockets in the Fallsview Casino. It isn't grilled quite as well as at a true Nathan store, but it still tastes great. And of course the fries are nothing like Nathan fries.
There are 2 other locations in Toronto but I am not sure if they carry the Nathan Hot Dog as not every JR location in the States does.
Check it out and reoprt back!
Please do try and good luck :-)
I emailed them a couple of times and didn't even get an automated form answer, much less a real one.
Even knowing the second generation of the founder's family (true -- I went to summer camp with Nathan Handwerker's grandson when I was 10) didn't net the courtesy of a reply.
