Need recommendations for high quality hot dogs - like Dicksons

Looking for recommendations for high quality hot dogs, like Dicksons in Chelsea Market. Eat-in or take-out, but not something we have to cook ourselves. Thanks!

        Dogmatic was supposed to move to a new location this summer. The website still shows the old location so that leads me to believe the move might not be complete. Best to call them. (Dogmatic is pretty good.)

          Oh, good to know - i'll check in with them before we go in September (I'm planning a few surprises for a birthday weekend).

    1. Would crif dogs qualify?
      If you want to also ask on outer boroughs Bark in brooklyn sounds like what you are looking for

        We're purists so fried or lard soaked dogs or any with heavy toppings are probably not the right style. That's why we like Dicksons, we were just wondering if there are others.

          If you do go to bark, and i think you should, dont ignore the small print at the bottom of the menu: the default pork/beef dogs are good and all, but the on-request option of an all beef dog is the way to go (to my taste).

            Wow, 3 votes for Bark - must be worth the schlep to Park Slope (sorry, but we're only 10 blocks from Dogmatic!).

              I don't think I've had their beef dogs; thanks for the rec.

              I know the OP wants recs for restaurants, but if she does go to Bark, she should also go down 5th Ave to 17th St, where she can buy the most amazing, freshly-made hot dogs at Eagle Provisions, the small Polish supermarket and butcher. Garlicky pork (or pork and veal? Not sure) dogs, with a snap like to tear your head off when you bite into it.
