- New Outpost, Old-Fashioned Hot Dogs
803 Main St.
Devotees of this Poughkeepsie hot dog joint were thrilled when a second location opened in New Paltz this spring. The outpost serves the same beloved dogs — like their signature Chicago Coney — and is also rapidly gaining fame for its burgers, which are wildly popular at the new space. The TexMex (made with chipotle mayo, avocados, and jalapeños) and the P-Town (grilled mushrooms, bacon, barbecue sauce, and shredded cheddar), for instance, have earned rave reviews from customers. And let’s not forget about the always-popular deep-fried Oreo dessert.

About: Noshi's winning weiners are of the throwback variety, the kind that audibly snap when you bite into them. The recipe is simple: Take a beef or veggie frankfurter, throw on the works (different orders feature chili, loose hamburger, or bacon, as well as the usual veggies), name it after a blue-collar industrial city (Detroit or Chicago) and -- voila! -- you've got yourself a Coney dog. Here, the boardwalk-themed restaurant decor matches the food's old-time fresh taste.
