Walter’s Hot Dog Stand
Walter’s has been a Mamaroneck institution for over 100 years, and if you’ve never waited in line for hot dogs from a roadside pagoda, this is your chance. They’re made in-house with a combination of pork, beef, and veal, then split, grilled, and served on a toasted bun. Get a single or double dog, and show your condiment style by ordering either “with” or “without” Walter’s own mustard blend. The hardest choice you’ll have to make is between four fried potato options (we’re partial to the curly fries). Walter’s is open year-round and has a nice picnic area if you want to demolish your dogs onsite. There’s also a second location in White Plains, if you prefer more indoor seating and less history.
