Footlong (Long Branch, New Jersey)

Regular hot dogs are great, but sometimes they're just not big enough! Enter the footlong, America's favorite type of hot dog.

Where to Get It: Long Branch, New Jersey, is hot dog central on the Jersey Shore, home to two beloved spots that have sold their franks a stone's throw from the beach for decades. Max's, established in 1928, does footlongs right, using a quarter-pound beef-pork Shickhaus slow-cooked on a flat griddle until nice and crispy. 25 Matilda Terrace, Long Branch, NJ
