Route 66 Hot Dogs,Burgers and Shakes --Long Branch

It is located on Route 36 where it turns into Joline Ave. Just past Monmouth Park on the right hand side in a small strip mall. 1950's feel to the inside and it has been open 2 weeks. Tried it on Monday. though i will give you a review it certainly is NOT a John Fox review. Dogs in size were similar to the Windmill in thickness and length. Same consistency as well from the grill. I got one plain to taste it w/o any condiments and then got one with just chili( Much like Mr Fox i don't like onions!). Surprisingly, it was a very Plainfield-style of Chili though maybe not as spicy. Plain dog was about 3.50 and the chili dog was 4.50 w/o the onions. Not sure how it will do as it is a tough area with plenty of competition. It is right on my route so i had to give it a chance.

      I'm always too chicken to ask. I just go by taste and if i like it! lol. My friend asked me if it is natural casing or not and i can't even figure out how to tell the difference even though i know what the difference is supposed to be. It def tasted more like a Windmill dog than a max's. Same shape but maybe shorter.

          The owner joined our Facebook page, Hot Dog Nation. The dog is a 6/1 Grote & Weigel griddle frank, same as those served at Texas Weiner l in Plainfield, Texas Weiner ll in Greenbrook, J&G, Red Tower, Manny's, and the many places that serve grilled Texas weiners.

      Has anyone actually eaten here? It seems a bit pricey for what they're selling but I'm curious.
