Legendary West Orange establishment. If you're looking for a real local Jersey flavor this should definitely be on your list!

I've been coming to Jimmy Buffs since I was a teenager. I am now 73 years old and the Hot Dogs still taste the same. I'm not supposed to eat them, but today I cheated. Well worth it.

If you adore hot dogs, this place is for you. Every kind imaginable with all the fixings. Soft rooms or buns. Have it - like you want it. Crowded at busy times. Huge truckers and workmen stop. Been a gem in this location for years.

Unique place. Very big sandwiches piled on with hot dogs, potatoes, peppers, onions, etc. A big fav for us. Very filling. Small place, not many seats.
