Where's The Buff?


At Jimmy Buff's, it's all in their Italian hotdogs, stuffed by the twosome in a pizza bread. My sister and I recently discovered this Jersey hotdog joint in East Hanover. I recognized the sign when I recalled it as one of the restaurants featured in a Travel Channel special on hotdogs, "Hotdog Heaven."


The signature hotdog sandwich actually consists of two Italian hotdogs with onions, fried potatoes and bell peppers. You choose the condiments. I opted for the single hotdog instead of double, which I later regretted because it didn't fill the pizza bread with enough meat.

The unique hotdog sandwich which originated in Newark was named after the Racioppi Family's Grandpa Buff. Many years ago, they served hotdogs in this manner to family and friends who came to their house for card games. The rest was hotdog history.


They have "Fat Tuesdays" in which all doubles cost only half-price. We didn't go there on a Tuesday, hence the single hotdog choice.
