A local alternative to the giant chain that is Nathan’s is Windmill, based right in New Jersey. There are plenty of locations throughout the state, but the original is in Long Branch and has been open since 1964. The giant foot-long hot dogs have a nice, crisp skin that has that perfect snap. Order yours with cheese drizzled all over it, or save the cheese for your fries. Either way, hot dog lovers are sure to have a great meal at this Jersey Shore favorite.
