The Original Kasper’s was established in 1929 in Northport,L.I. And in July 2012 they just celebrated a grand re-opening, a perfect punctuation to National Hot Dog Month! You can’t beat their classic New York and Chicago dogs. Or their namesake, the Kasper (sweet relish, yellow mustard, tomato, onion, salt, pepper, and cayenne). But there’s something about the Wazilla (asian slaw, crispy wonton, wasabi cream and teriyaki) that has our mouth watering. Just sounds like it would be awesome with a cold bottle of Boylan Orange! Boylan is proud to be the exclusive soda of this legendary hot dog stand.

“If hot dogs were a religion…” Whoa? You mean they’re not? Well don’t tell the guys who own and run the Franktuary out of the basement of Trinity Cathedral in downtown Pittsburgh. Start with your frank of choice — standard, veggie or “locavore” (organic, grass-fed, all beef) — and then select from any number of classic and gourmet frank topping combos. Our favorite? The “Pittsburgher” with “smooshed” pierogi and cole slaw comes to mind first, because when you’re in Pittsburgh…you get the picture. In addition to their Trinity Cathedral location, The Franktuary also operates a hot dog truck that has legions of followers — literally, following it. And rumor has it they’re scouting for a second location!
