Rutt’s Hut in Clifton Named Best Hot Dog in America 2017

The Daily Meal rolled out their annual list of America’s 75 Best Hot Dogs this week. Votes came from bloggers, media, jouralists – covering everything from the simple dog to links that have been elevated with toppings like chili, Chicago dog-style (mustard, fresh tomatoes, onions, sport peppers, bright green relish, dill pickles, and celery salt) and more. (Read Full List)

Places were vetted for quality of ingredients and overall experience, since places could be simple shacks in the middle of nowhere to full on restaurants.

While there were quite a few New Jersey eateries on the list, one actually reigned supreme over all of them. Rutt’s Hut got the number #1 ranking with their pork/beef rippers, served all the way. Of course they’ve been getting plenty of accolades of the years including props from,, First We Feast, and The Daily Meal’s previous year lists.
