Philly Hot Dog Joint Ranks #1 in State
A Fishtown favorite has been named the best place to get a hot dog in Pennsylvania by Food & Wine magazine!
Johnny’s Hots on Delaware Ave has been an institution for hot dogs and fish cakes for a while.. an old Philly tradition. And now they’re getting national attention from Food & Wine.
Don’t forget about their bangin’ breakfast sandwiches too…
Here’s what Food & Wine had to say..
The service is perfunctory on a good day, the vibe is pre-gentrification Fishtown, and the crowd is as down-by-the-docks as it gets around here these days. In other words, Johnny’s Hots is the perfect place to introduce the unsuspecting to the very best kind of Philadelphia, the no-bullshit kind, starring a reliable cast of characters that can be found lining up at strange hours, as early as five o’clock in the morning. After years of attrition, this is also one of the last best places in Philadelphia for one of the city’s more under-appreciated meals: the long hot (a sausage/dog combo type deal), topped with a cod and potato fish cake, and a bright, crispy pepper hash made with cabbage and apple cider vinegar, flecked with red peppers for color. Don’t fight it—just eat it. This was meant to be.
Don’t fight it – just eat it. Wise words.
