If I owned a Harley, this is where I’d stop on my way home from a Delaware River ride. Many riders do pull off Route 46 into this classic roadside stand for the hot dogs, fries and a mug of ice cold birch beer or fresh buttermilk – yes, buttermilk. The dogs are straightforward: a pork and beef dog, allegedly from Schmalz’s European Provisions of Newark, fried in peanut oil and served with mustard, chopped onion and a pickle slice. Not as much flavor in the dog itself as a Rutt’s Hut or Galloping Hill dog, but an all together very satisfying hot dog in a picturesque setting.
Eat at the picnic tables overlooking the Pequest River, in the small seating area or in your car. Warning: If anyone is afraid of bees (say, perhaps, your oldest daughter), avoid the picnic area in hot weather.
