The Troy mini dog is one of the city’s claims to fame, and there are three main places where you should try them. We recommend…all of them. The rivalry between these spots is fierce, and your personal favorite will either depend on where your family ate when you were a kid, or which chili sauce you like best. Famous Lunch is a downtown spot that’s been open since 1932, and it’s hard to beat their peak nostalgia aesthetic. Grab a counter seat, get an RC Cola, and order a few mini dogs. They’re around two bites each, so let that information dictate how many you get. Their rice pudding is also very good.
