A hot dog boiled in oil and served with onions and chili sauce. This is Paterson, NJ's contribution to American cuisine. People outside New Jersey will call this a "Coney Island" or 'chili dog", but they can't raise a candle to the Paterson Texas Weiner.
And yes, that's how we spell it! And if you want to start a big debate in Passaic County, NJ, just tell them that the Hot Grill in Clifton bakes better Texas Weiners than Libby's Lunch in Paterson or Pappy's Diner in Totowa. And you can say that everybody beats the Falls View.
