I've got to stop writing articles just before I take a break for lunch. That's the point in my day when I'm hungry and I tend to think about food. Hence, I will gravitate to an article about food. Not that there's anything wrong with that. It's not like I'm about to visit a grocery store on an empty stomach. That is a recipe for disaster.

So, regardless of the time of day or my current level of hungry, the great American hot dog came to mind. Hot dogs are my go-to food when I need something quick to eat, or when I'm at camp.

Choosing the best type of hot dogs n the grocery store is sometimes a challenge for me. Do I want the cheap brand, or drop a few dollars extra on the top-of-the-line hot dogs? Do I want hot dogs that have a natural casing, bun length, Angus beef, turkey franks, fat-free, or any of the other endless types of hot dogs available?

And as toppings are concerned, my favorites are chili (no beans, please) and diced onions with a line of mustard on top. I do enjoy the simple dog with either mustard or ketchup, maybe some relish, and diced onions.

Better yet, rather than creating my own, I'd rather enjoy a tasty hot dog or two from a local restaurant or diner, So, what places in the Southern Tier serve the best hot dog? It always comes down to a matter of opinion, so I asked on social media where Southern Tier locals go for a delicious All-American hot dog.

Here are some of the responses I received. Thanks for the answers. If your favorite place to enjoy an awesome hot dog is not on this list, let me know. And, no your home or grill doesn't count.
