Around since the 1920's Walter's is a neighborhood institution. Locals and high-schoolers can be seen queuing up at the pagoda-like stand after 11 AM for the special hot dogs, fries and shakes. The hot dogs, made of a (secret?) blend of meats and spices, are split, grilled and wrapped in a toasted bun. Walter's own mustard/relish blend makes a good... More

The hotdogs are incredible at this long standing tradition of a hot dog stand. Great fries and shakes in many favors too.

This much hyped hotdog stand was a big disappointment to us. We had seen the long lines and heard that it sells the best hotdogs in the US so we decided to go for it. We stood in line for more than half an hour for some very poor tasting hotdogs. Any NY city hotdog cart hotdog is better! I... More

Walter's is a hot dog joint. The dogs are good but you can make them at home just as good. Prices are average. Service is ok but sometimes the lines are very, very long and it takes a while to put in your order. Then you have to wait to get it. I don't get it.

The hot dogs at Walter's are good,but not as great as others have said. I've had better at a number of other places. Everyone has their own opinion. There are some other items on the menu that were good as well. I gave Walter's a very good rating since the food is good, not average and the prices are very... More

If you grew up in Mamaroneck, you never forget the experience of a Walter's hot dog. 50 years later, we are still talking about Walter's whenever we reminisce about growing up in Mamaroneck. To this day, we still meet people who talk about Walter's even though they didn't grow up in this town. There is no duplicating the taste or... More

Perhaps I am just the odd man out, but we made a special trip to specifically try to hot dogs....and we were both a bit disappointed. Nothing special in my eyes.
