This is the eighth year that I’ve taken Ed around New Jersey to try different hot dog joints for his birthday. This is the eighth year I’ve been doing this. I can hardly believe it. Somewhere along the line, I actually grew to look forward to these tours. Initially, I just got something non-hot dog on the menu and tried to muddle through. All these hot dog places have made me a hot dog lover.
Cioffi’s Boardwalk gets a lot of lip service in hot dog message boards and Facebook groups so we figured it was time to see what they were all talking about.
We were so impressed with their menu and the size of their dogs that we only got one giant hot dog to try. It was grilled and had a great snap. The sauerkraut tasted great, too. That giant hot dog was a masterpiece. You can see it in the lead picture above. One dog is a whole meal!
We also had a hamburger and a cheesesteak. Both had lots of beefy flavor and were well-cooked. We really liked everything we tried here.
The fries were so good that we practically licked the bag they came in.
