2013 Best Hot Dog


There’s no seating at this Mattapan institution, so after ordering at the window, be prepared to tear into your thin, footlong dog—slathered with chili, onions, and mustard and wedged into a hot, buttered-then-griddled bun—right there on the street (or, if you have the self-restraint, back in your car).

1509 Blue Hill Ave., Mattapan, 617-296-3800,
