Walters Hot Dogs is a hot dog stand with a roof which looks like a pagoda! It’s also on the National Register of Historic Places.
The stand has been around since 1928, the business for over 100 years, as it was founded in 1919 originally in another location.On a telephone pole in front, a sign mentions that “the building typifies the attention-getting styles of roadside restaurants in the 1920s.”
I love coming across roadside gems like Walter’s so I had to give their hot dogs a try again. (Kim and I had visited the stand around 5 years back.)At Walters Hot Dogs, the offerings consist of a variety of (not so surprising) hot dogs, fries shakes and other drinks. We ordered one hot dog which costs $2.75.While waiting for our hot dog, Lucas and I checked out the marker mentioning that Walters Hot Dogs was a National Historic Landmark since 2010.We looked forward to trying out what’s considered one of the best hot dogs.The hot dog almost resembles a sandwich more than a traditional hot dog due to the way its split down the middle and placed on the bun.We really enjoyed the snappy and flavorful dog. We ordered it with a little ketchup, I’d suggest also adding some of their brown mustard, too.
Overall, this is probably the most unique hot dog stand I’ve ever come across. If you’re in the area, I’d say that Walter’s is a must-visit.
Walter’s Hot Dog Stand is located at 937 Palmer Avenue, Mamaroneck, NY.
