Invented in Newark, New Jersey, in 1932, the Italian hot dog is more a hot dog sandwich than anything else, the (often deep-fried) franks stuffed into a half-moon pocket of chewy “pizza bread” along with onions, peppers, and slices of fried potato. The all-beef franks typically hail from Newark-based Best Provisions, or Sabrett.
Where to Get It: The alleged birthplace of the Italian hot dog, Jimmy Buff’s, remains a great place to give this gut bomb a whirl: a deep-fried frank and oil-slicked veggies served with your choice of ketchup, mustard, or onion relish. 60 Washington St., West Orange, NJ
