There’s nothing that says “summertime” like a hot dog fresh off the grill, coated in any of your favorite toppings such as mustard, ketchup, relish and more. To celebrate the famous hot dog, National Hot Dog Day is well on its way on July 19 and there’s only one – and very easy – way to celebrate, which is of course by enjoying a hot dog.

They’re also known for their curbside pickup for quick meals if you’re in a rush. With tons of amazing reviews from local fans, Stony’s is a must-visit in the summertime for any South Orange resident. Stop by this weekend to see what all the fuss is about!

Jimmy Buff’s Italian Hot Dogs, located at 60 Washington St, West Orange which is about four miles from your Gaslight Commons apartment, is a no-frills outpost specializing in Italian hot dogs with all the trimmings in counter-serve settings.

The Italian Hot Dog and its nearest relative, the Italian sausage, are the staple fare at Jimmy’s Buff’s and take turns outselling each other. A Jimmy Buff Italian hot dog goes on a quarter of a large roll of Italian “pizza” bread. The dog is cooked in hot oils and then topped with sautéed onions, peppers and potatoes.
