Rutts Hut Big disappointment

Foy years I wanted to try Rutts Hut hot dogs. I was never so disappointed the ride alone for me was just an hour to get there. We were in and out of the place within 25 minutes. The waitress walked passed our table 3x before saying hello gave a bad impression to us. The dog was nothing worth the ride we went for. It was deep fried and wrinkled but had no different taste. Waitress said the fries would be enough for 2 people it was a small plate of a few fries.

I have never had such a disappointemnt after having a watery mouth craving for their hot dogs. Another drawback is they had several drunks in the place which is obviously a turnoff for most newcombers.

If you want an excellent Italian Hot Dog try Charlies in Kenilwortrh, NJ. Excellent dog with onions, mustard, peppers and round thick potatoes on top. Well worth the money it has been there for many years also. Clean and simple tables and chairs.

Rutts Hut was a huge thumbs down for the long wait and the long drive to get there.

I was actually surprised Rutts Hut made it on the Travel Channel.

I have to agree w/ you. I went to Rutts Hutt about two weeks ago w/ a couple of guys from work. We ate at the take-out side and I found the hot dog nothing spectacular at all. I had an order of fries as well, and it was equivalent to a small order from McD's.

My dad still loves it and enjoys going whenever he's in the area. Maybe it's time to find an alternative...
