Hot dogs are the main feature at this family operated business, but if you are looking for tons of toppings this place isn’t for you. The Roast Grill sticks to the basics and does them well -- homemade chili (from a recipe more than 70 years old), yellow mustard, hand-chopped onions and slaw marinated without mayonnaise. This place only takes cash, so hit the ATM first.

Fun fact: In 2009, the Travel Channel’s “Man V. Food” host Adam Richman downed 17 hot dogs and buns, a half pint of mustard and one pint of chili sauce at The Roast Grill in 30 minutes to win the Hot Dogger Eating Challenge.
