    Your order: 2 rippers with cheese, topped with raw onions & their famous (non-pickle) relish. A side of chili with beans to pour a top and in perfect jersey fashion, disco fries with mozz and gravy.

    If u love hot dogs, this is THE place! Dogs are deep-fried-w/cracked, crispy casings & juicy insides. Top it w/ their famous house-made sweet mustard-based relish made w/cabbage, onions, and carrots!

    Get the Rippers - deep fried hotdogs fried until their cases crack and split. Try them topped with chili, the cheese, and the special mustard-based relish made with cabbage, onions, and carrots.

    Even if you don't like relish, you have to try Rutt's mustard relish--it is frigging great! You haven't had a hot dog until you try one from Rutt's Hut. Stand in the front or get them to go.

    Best hot dogs ever, load up your ripper (hotdogs) with relish. The relish recipe is locked in a safe in a unknown location from what I heard. Fast service seriously! Cash only!

    Get a ripper and make sure you use the relish. Eat standing and gazing out to the highway for a true Rutt experience. We head here every time we are remotely close.

    Best hotdogs I've ever had. Try their relish. I usually don't like relish but theirs is a crazy combo that is delicious with some spicy mustard. Great onion rings too.

    They call it a "dive", it really isn't. Hearty food, pleasant bright atmosphere and a neat 1920's bar. I definitely will come again.
  • Marco N.
    Great no frills stand up counter service for deep fried dogs with homemade relish and chili on the side. Dont expect anything else. That's what the place is about.

    Always get "relish to go" for your dogs... It's a great sandwich topper to have in your fridge for the next week or so. Their relish is amazing!!

    Best hot dog (ripper) you'll ever have. It's the ONLY active place in New Jersey to appear on Wikipedia's "Top 1,000 Places to See In the U.S. and Canada Before You Die" for a reason... Read more

    Easily one of the best hot dogs you will ever eat!! A classic piece of New Jersey's edible history.  Try the Ripper!!
  • Ricky S.
    Nothing beats 2-3 "rippers" with chile. Throw is some fries or onion ring (or both) & I guarantee you will walk away happy.

    They make their own relish & mustard and it's good. Also the fact that they deep fry their hotdogs is good too!

    Our own Robert Sietsema calls these delicious hot dogs “the first taste of summer.” The beautiful view of the Passaic River ain’ttoo bad either!

    Get a ripper. You won't look at hot dogs the same way again. Relish is not what you think - get that, too.

    Was told not to get the kraut and to try their famous house relish instead. I was pleased with the decision.

    I wonder how many people in NJ have grandparents who frequented this place as kids - I know mine did. Like a museum of a bygone era, don't forget to have a 'Mavis' with your rippers.
