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.


Dine O Mite!

    As the “oldest daughter” in this situation I have to say yes, I do have a slight phobia of all insects. And while I may be exaggerating because of this, I have to say it is a LOT of bees, and they are the kind that sting. So if you are like me take the advice and stay in your car. Otherwise, it is a great place to eat and the buttermilk is amazing!
