This is a superb place, if you want to be taken back to the 50's or even before. Walter's in Mamaroneck, is a real throwback to the days of drive in hot dog joints where you stand in line, and don't mind, because you know you will be rewarded with an excellent and snappy dog with some outstanding only at...

Not the typical deli hot dog. These dogs are split open and cooked butterfly style in butter. Served on a slightly squished toasted bun and slathered in their own homemade oriental mustard/relish mix. Been going there since high school over 40 years ago. But I am a relative youngster. They have been dishing out dogs and homemade ice cream since... More

An unassuming roadside stand, Walter's is a lower Westchester legend. For over 50 years, I think, Walter's has been serving up terrific hot dogs, fries, and shakes to those willing to stand on the line, make their order, and enjoy the best hotdogs ever.

You'll have to wait in line up to a half an hour, but the wait is worth it! Split, fried dogs either plain, or with ketchup or mustard (Walter's own blend), or both. Period. The BEST! Accompany with a chocolate cowboy (a thick milkshake) and you're good to go!

I have heard great things about this place but never been. I went for the first time a few days ago and I have no idea why it took me so long. Some people like these hot dogs and others dont. I loved them. I think it has to do with how they are prepared as well as the mustard... More

The lines are sometimes long at lunch time. The orders are taken and the hot dogs are made to order. I have seen people eat a half a dozen in one sitting. I have two with just mustard. This landmark place has their own hot dog formula made especially for them. Like coca cola they do not give it out.... More

I've been to Walter's many times. It's a quaint little place, a National Historic Landmark (founded in 1919). Worth a visit, if only for that reason. Pros: 1. The hot dogs are delicious. They slice them down the middle and brown them on a hot griddle which brings out the flavor and eliminates the wet feel that so many dogs... More

hot dogs, fries all done exceptionally well. There is a good reason why this place is always rated in the top hot dog and summer experience lists- the food is consistently well done. The lines can be long but they move quickly enough. Make sure to check the hours before you go- they are not open late.

We keep coming back! My grandma and I love to take the ride up during lunch. Best hotdogs around and it doesn't hurt that everything else is good too! We go at lead 3 times a month during the summer.
