looking for the top dogs- great rolls, fresh toppings. Any ideas? Thx

  1. I'd really like to know, since as far as prepared hot dogs my part of NH (Dartmouth/Lake Sunapee) is mostly a wasteland (it's not bad if I'm making my own, I can get Deutschmacher and McKenzie's in the store easily enough, and I have a reasonable stash of Hummels in the freezer). Sadly, I mostly just grab steamed McKenzie dogs from some of the local general stores.

    If I'm missing a good place, I'd really like to know. I'm seriously craving a good dog like a Blackie's dog or a Rutt's Hut ripper.

    Better places I've found are:

    Fabulous 50's in Newport. A decent selection of hot dogs and chili dogs, nicely cooked and toasted. They even have a Carolina slaw dog. Don't get the footlong, since they don't have proper footlong buns, so there's a lot of overhang (slaw dog pic at


    For your decent-but-nothing-special Nathan's hot dog (with decent toppings options like kraut and chili), Scoop City in Claremont isn't bad (pic at


    And the hot dog cart in Hanover is good, but pricey.
