My wife and I gave Cookers Red Hots a try for the first time about a year ago. Their "official name" is misleading. Cookers is way more than a "hot dog place." Since that first visit, we've been back a number of times for take-out orders.

This place is a throw-back to a time when neighborhood diners/take-out joints were THE PLACE to go for fast food: fresh ingredients; made-to-order; nice menu; daily specials; fair prices, great service, and; pride in ownership/operation. Note: if you're on a diet or counting your calories, Cookers may not be for you. That said . . .

Some things that we've tried that are ALL very good: The Gyro Sandwich; Ribeye Sandwich; Onion Rings; Greek Salad and Asian Salad. Also: the fresh-cut french fries that come with the sandwiches - excellent. (Warning: once again, NOT for those of you who are counting calories.)

Now, if you made Cookers a daily habit and are over 40, you would probably pack on the pounds and be a good candidate for a grabber. (But isn't that the case with most of the chain fast food places?)

On the other hand, if you have a craving - on occasion - for some really good, well-prepared fast food, chances are that you will agree with me: Cookers is a one-of-a-kind delicious place!

superb place for lunch or a casual dinner. Their Italian sausage sandwich is as good or better that the best I have gotten at the NEW YORK STATE FAIR. Their french fries are fresh-cut and are the best ever. Everything here is delicious. A great place to blow your diet!!

Very casual. Order and pick up at the counter. Primarily sandwiches, from hot dogs to gyros. Their gyros on pita is among the best with plenty to eat. In fact buy an extra pita and take half the meat home for another meal.

So I can get a delicious char-grilled hot dog with all the fixins and a handful of fries for about $4.00? I call it a good deal. Tasty dogs, fresh condiments and the staff has been found to be quite courteous. I've eaten there on busy weekdays and slow weekends and it's reliably the same.
I can't say anything about the salads, burgers or gyros (other than they know how to pronounce gyro) because I've been hooked on their delicious chardogs with onion, mustard, pickle, relish and tomato. Also, the fries are good - not the thin limp fast food style but a skin-on, crispy version fried in an oil (peanut?) that makes them taste just fine. I'd recommend it if you're in the mood for a simple classic.
