Walters Hot dogs

This is a classic- the food is always good (if you like hot dogs), always a line. Potato puffs are great

I do not get the long lines for a Hot Dog??? Walter's Hot Dogs are just OK and way over priced. I'll stick with the classic and best Hot Dogs at Nathans Famous.

I've been going to Walter's since I was a child. They make the absolute best hot dogs. Don't pass up the special mustard, as it's a real treat. The line can be long, but definitely worth every minute.

I have lived in New York my whole life to know what a great hot dog tastes, and i most say Walter's has the greatest hot dogs in all of New York as they are served with the Walter's signature mustard. The curly fries were really great complement to the hot dog as well.

Was at a wedding in Cooperstown, NY earlier this year and made a 140 mile trip to Mamaroneck, where I grew up, just to have lunch at Walter's. Was not disappointed. Same dogs as when I lived in the area 40 years ago. A national landmark, established in 1919, and for good reason. If you're in southern NY do your... More

Long lines at Walters attest to the terrific hot dogs and fries . A fun place to get lunch. Love the picnic tables. Great for an outdoor lunch with friends or family.

These hotdogs speak for them selves- so good! The mustard is beyond words! They are award winning. Sometimes you have to wait on line and the bathroom is antique but a great grab and go spot!

Locals line up for hot dogs that are split in half and fried in butter. They have their own mustard. Potato puffs are great. Good shakes. A throw back to drive in days. Parking can be a hassle but there is parking off the street behind the restaurant. Outdoor seating. Fun to see where postcards of customers are from.
