Welcome back to Sunday Diners – we’ve been really busy this summer and we have a lot of ketchup (get it) to do!

Today, we visited one of the best hot dog places in the country!  Super Duper Weenie in Fairfield.  They have been written about in the New York Times, and in many magazines AND have even been featured on Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

Super Duper Weenie has two parts… the kitchen and counter (where you order) that has some bar-style seating… and a dining area with long tables where everyone gets to sit together… with this guy watching over you:


At Super Duper Weenie, you can have your dog with your choice of condiments… OR you could have one of their specialty hot dogs. Today, dad and I decided to have two of their specialty dogs…

Topped with Lettuce, Tomato, Mustard, Celery Salt, Hot Relish and Pickle

Spicy Southern Sausage with Sauerkraut, Mustard and Homemade Sweet Relish

The dogs were juicy and had a good crunch when you bit into them. Super Duper Weenie makes all of their own relishes and toppings… so they’re really good and fresh.  It’s also very interesting that there are all sorts of different ways that people eat their hot dogs around the country – Super Duper Weenie even has hot dogs on the menu that are made in the style of New York, California, New England and even Cincinnati!

We also shared some Fries and I had a Black & White. The fries were amazing, and soon we learned why.

IMG-20130819-00583I spoke to Gary Zemola, one of the owners and our chef today about why his fries are so good.

He told me that, “We get the potatoes from a special farm in Massachusetts that grows them for us exclusively… it’s a type of potato that is also used in Lay’s potato chips that is called a Norwiss”


I also asked Mr. Zemola what his favorite Weenie was…

“That’s really easy… The New Englander is my favorite… Sauerkraut, Bacon, Mustard, Sweet Relish, and Raw Onion… you get everything… the hot, the sweet, the salty and the crunch!”

Super Duper Weenie also does catering… where they can bring their Super Weenie Truck to your party! Today I met a couple who had the Super Duper Weenie Truck cater their wedding! Maybe one day, we can have them come for my birthday (hint hint).


Thanks Haley, Nick and Mr. Gary!  We’ll be back for burgers soon they look awesome too!
