DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. -- The classic hot dog, in all its bronzed, charred perfection, holds a special place in the hearts – and stomachs -- of most Americans, especially come summer. July, in fact, is National Hot Dog Month, thanks to the designation by the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council.

Frank Talk: The toppings and wild topping combinations sets this place apart -- think hot dogs covered in seaweed salad, banana, cherry peppers, ranch dressing, wasabi cream, ginger soy mayo and Fruity Pebbles. You can even opt for mac n' cheese or a fried egg.
The four and a half year old eatery boasts 54 signature hot dogs that range from classics like a chili and cheddar dawg to the slightly wilder side of things which means covering your dawg with peanut butter, jelly or Captain Crunch. There's even a pizza dawg, an Everything Bagel Dawg and a S'more Dawg.
Top This: Owner Jeff Jee attributes his success to treating his guests the way he'd like to be treated. "We try to make sure every guest has a great experience when they come in, regardless of whether it's their first time or their 100th," he said.
