Pete's Hots Dogs - Newburgh, NY

I was up in the City of Newburgh yesterday and couldn't pass up the opportunity to go to Pete's Hot Dogs.  I first experienced Pete's while working for Dana Distributors delivering beer.  We used to stop here for lunch on occassion when I was out on the City of Newburgh route.  They are great hot dogs, and are within the top 3 on my list.  I believe they are Boars Head Natural Casing Hot Dogs, which they serve push cart style. 

I ordered two dogs, one with New York Style Onions, the second with Texas Hot Bean Sauce, and both with mustard.  They were great dogs with great snap.  Onions were perfectly cooked and the bean sauce had great spice without overpowering the dog.  The buns were a perfect size compared to the dog and were nice and soft.  A highlight of Pete's is they serve ice cold chocolate milk in a small carton, which I obviously could not pass up.  Best part is, the two hot dogs and chocolate milk cost a total of $4.10.  Can't beat that price for a great dogs.  I even purchased a Pete's Hot Dogs T-Shirt for $12.  All in all, it was a great trip to Newburgh.

    Just an FYI - the hot dogs came from the now defunct Temple Hill Meat Company until a few short years ago. I'm not sure where they now get the dogs from. The new supplier is very good, and close to the originals, but not exactly the same

  6. The menu boards have Boar's Head logos on them. I imagine that is the hot dog they are now using.
