Best Hot Dogs

1) Capitol Lunch

Connecticut is a hot dog state. People who are obsessive about their frankfurters look to the Nutmeg State as a beacon of greatness. We’ve got famous fried dogs down in Fairfield County and couple of the most highly regarded hot dogs -- Grote & Weigel, and Hummel -- are made right here. But New Britain’s Capitol Lunch is legendary. Fans love it for its distinctive homemade meat sauce. And for the fact that you can still get dog -- complete with mustard, chopped onions and that famous sauce -- for $1.75. Talk about recession-proof!
