Dickie Dee's: Double Italian Dog

Where: 
Dickie Dee's, Newark, NJ

What: 
Double Italian Dog

Build: 
3 Bests hot dogs (no, they are not Sabrett's), mustard, ketchup, fried potato chunks, fried onion, on a 1/2 loaf of Italian pizza (la beetz) bread. No idea why there are 3 dogs on a "double" dog...

If you are a resident of NJ and consider yourself even a little bit of a foodie, then you've been to, or at least heard of Dickie Dee's on Bloomfield Ave in Newark. They have been in business for over 50 years and if you ask me, the fryer oil gets tastier each time. 

Magic Mike brought us 1/2 a doz of these beauties all the way to LBI today and although they had cooled down by the time we ate them, they still packed a punch of flavor. I don't understand why you get 3 dogs on a double dog order, but who am I to complain? You just can't beat one of these dogs when they are scalding hot out of the deep fryer. 

It takes two hands to eat one of these served up on a 1/2 loaf of Pizza bread or "la beetz" - the top is covered with fried potatoes and ketchup, the next layer down is fried onion and then you start to get the hot dogs bathed in a generous amount of spicy brown mustard. There's lots of flavors bouncing around in your mouth by the time you get to the lower levels. And there is definitely a better flavor when meat and potatoes are fried in peanut oil, for lack of a better description, it's just a good, distinct taste. 

Awesome non-burger food. Keep up the good work, and thanks again for the road trip Mikey. 10/10
