Rob's Hot Dogs Rt 527 Jackson NJ

I just had to stop by and have IMO the best Home made Chili Dogs I've had in a long time .....
every time I'm in the area I gotta get 3 or 4 !!!!....The Hot Dogs are Sabrett style, the chili is home made daily by the lady who runs Rob's Hot Dog Truck..... parked on Rt 527 & Grawtown Rd.....Great prices, Friendly service ....DELICIOUS Hot dogs! Check it out sometime!

  1. Sounds good. Do the dogs have a natural casing?

      I really don't know about casing...seems to be the standard Sabrett ( dirty water dog ) you would get off a cart in NYC,.. ....would have to ask to be sure .....all I Know the Chili is wonderful. ;-)

        Hi Tapas,

        Are you coming on the 2011 NJ Hot Dog Tour?

        Just asking because once you have completed a day listening to our fine "hotdoglover" educating us on the finer points of hot dogs, you will never have to wonder about
        what kind of dog you are eating. You will be an active participant in everything hot doggy!

        I should know...I am one of the enlightened ones.

        PS....How many different types of mustard does this cart in Jackson have?


        1. re: MishyPoo

          MishyPoo what are the dates for the hotdog tour.......this is just a very simple Hot Dog truck with great chili dogs out in the Jackson woods...... I usually couple it with ketchup & mustard of unknown origins?.... all I know it tastes good....... believe me I know hot dogs but I'm always willing to learn more in depth info I used to live up North in Newark & between Rutt's Hut, Dickie D's, Jimmy Buffs, and a host of others I have been on many of my own personal hot dog tours..... did I also mention I grew up in Coney Island so Nathans was my childhood love ? ;-) ...anyway if Im available I would love to take the tour your talking about.....if my schedule allows it.

          Take care..
