7th Annual YDKJ Hot Dog Tour – George’s Hot Dogs, Bayonne

We’re knee-deep in hot dog stories over here at YDKJ. We’re in the middle of our 7th Annual YDKJ Hot Dog Tour.

George’s Hot Dogs started out in 1923 as Petridis Hot Dogs. Let’s just say, they know how to make a hot dog.

They offer classic Sabrett’s as both dirty water dogs and grilled dogs.  We tried them prepared both and weren’t disappointed in either method.


We got a dirty water double dog all the way first.  George’s offers hot and regular mustard and we tried hot mustard with the chili and onions.  Glad we did because the chili was pretty mild.  I personally like a spicy chili but, of course, not everyone does.


The grilled dog we tried is on the far right, above.  As you can see, there’s not much difference in the appearance of the dirty water and grilled dogs. The grilled dog is just a little crisper and less tart from the sauerkraut-laden water.


Their waffle fries were really good.  A little seasoned and a little crispy with lots of creamy potato inside.


I also tried a corn dog which was microwaved to defrost and then deep-fried.  This made some of the dough a little tough but it’s wasn’t terrible.  I’d stick with the dogs in a bun for future visits, though.


George’s Hot Dogs is a Bayonne landmark and worth stopping by if you’re in the area.  They’re a cash only establishment like all the great old hot dog joints so go prepared with dollar bills.

Check out all the pictures from our visit to George’s:
