James Beard pays homage to NY System

Thanks for passing on this good news.
What a terrific honor for the Olneyville New York System. Weenies are such Rhode Island fare, aren’t they. It is so hard to explain their appeal to non-natives. Same with clam cakes and D. Palmieri’s pizza strips. Glad the James Beard Foundation has brought this uniquely Rhode Island food to national attention.
Been going to Wien-O-Rama about once / month for many years. Never found a better hot dog / weiner elsewhere. Make that two all the way with a medium coffee milk, please...... (Not really a native as I've only been here about 10 yrs)
Second up for me is probably a tie between Glenwood Drive-in in Hamden CT and Ted's in Phoenix, Az with some enjoyable dogs in north Jersey, but they are all significantly different than a Wein-O-Rama weiner.
At home, we only have Hummel (when we can find them). Can't duplicate (come near) the Wien-O-Rama weiners, so at home we go traditional, but only with Hummels..
