Walter's Hot Dog Stand, Mamaroneck

Frank Talk: A lot of history -- and love - go into this hot dog, a cherished family recipe that dates to 1919 and Founder Walter Warrington.

The stand's claim to fame -- the Westchester institution has won number accolades, including as our own DVlicious winner in 2016 --  is its blend of beef, pork and veal,  split down the middle and grilled to golden brown perfection in a secret sauce. The buns are toasted to a crisp and the dogs are then nestled inside and slathered in housemade mustard.

As much as its hot dogs are beloved, so, too, is Walter's ambiance: a funky Chinese pagoda where standing in line -- and grabbing a picnic table in the back -- is part of the process.

Walter's is also well known for its food trucks and recently announced it will soon open a second location in White Plains .
