My search for the best hot dog in New York continues….

RIPPERS, 8601 Shore Front Parkway (on Boardwalk at Beach 86th Street), Rockaway, Queens

I went out to the Rockaways a few years ago to try the burgeoning (read: hipster) food scene way out on the beaches of Queens. One of the most talked about places is Rippers which sits right on the recently re-opened boardwalk selling burgers, juices, and hot dogs. I was so excited to try it but when I arrived the Department of Health was conducting their annual inspection and the restaurant decided to stop selling food and give their full attention to the inspector.

Is Everyone Wearing Gloves?

Don’t get me started on how asinine it is for the Department of Health to come and inspect a restaurant business that is not running their normal business. Isn’t the point to make sure the restaurant is sanitary when they are actually serving food? I was also quite upset that I had made the 90 minute trek to try the food and no food was available.

This year I returned to the Rockaways for another day of sun, fun, and food. Rippers was thankfully going at full speed and I had a chance to finally taste their hot dogs and burgers.
