An institution for hot dogs in Mamaroneck

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.

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

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.

Obviously, Mamaroneck is full of Walter's fanatics. I respect their views, but don't share their bliss. The last time I went there, I had a double - two dogs in a single bun - and fries. The dogs themselves are mildly spiced, and have a decent snap to them. But, if I am being completely honest, the wurst at Halo... More

This is the best hot dog I have ever had and I never eat hot dogs. This place will make you a lover of hot dogs!

One of the all time best places to get a hot dog. No Nathans style or sauerkraut and mustard. So unique.. My favorite is a 'double". two split franks on one bun with mustard. So yummy. I have been going to this unusual architectural gem since 1954, when I used to ride my bicycle from White Plains ( 5 or... More

For the cost of one of Walter's "creations" I could go to the supermarket and get a half dozen packages of all-beef franks and make them the way I wanted to. With or without butter.I wouldn't have to wait on line to eat it, either.

Hot dogs may be all-American, but how many hot dog stands are on the National Register of Historic Places? For 75 years, little Walter's on Palmer Road in Mamaroneck has been drawing steady crowds who love the simple and wonderful hot dogs, fries, and variety of shakes or a good egg cream. You walk up to the quirky stand, place... More

Stop at Walters EVERY chance I get. I live in CT. but stop by on my way to a Yankee game or when headed to NYC. They did some work on the place last year and now the ordering process is a bit faster. LOVE the mustard and the black and white shakes
