Enough on the menu to keep you coming back. The hot dogs taste great and reading the variety of "dirty" dogs they offer will make your mouth water. They don't slap together your food and can see the chili was carefully laid down on the dog. This shows careful attention to detail and pride in what they do. I definitely will be back to try the mac and cheese bites as well as the 4 o'clock bacon. Oh and very reasonable prices! You guys need a bigger sign for the place! I passed it the first time not realizing the sign was on the window and half the place is actually a deli.

I've been to the 'Pup a couple times. I thoroughly enjoyed my visits. The decor is unique, the service snappy, and the Kraut is 'Dirty' (in a good way)
Personally I've sampled the Dirty Jersey and the Crack Dog, and both were out of this world.
On my next trip I may try the 4 o'clock bacon.
Most places slap your food into a bun and send you packing, I appreciated the care put into something as simple as a hot dog.
As a matter of fact, I may head over there today for lunch.
If I was going solo or had a gaggle of kids to feed, The Mucky Pup would be a smart stop.

But they have.....

The owners of The Mucky Pup are Hot Dog fanatics. They have scoured the globe to find out just what makes a great hot dog. Born and raised in New Jersey, I have to give the Milnes Brothers credit for doing their homework on hot dogs. Chris has grown up on hot dogs, and since travelled the world in search of the best dog. I spent weeks, maybe months watching him sample Germany's Best wurst, or brat... What toppings work? What bread is best? Ketchup or mustard?

All legit questions, UNLESS you demand the BEST hot dog around.....

The best Hot Dog around, without question, is The Crack Dog, available at THE MUCKY PUP

272 Liberty Street, right off Rte.46 in Little Ferry,NJ. Inside DiRienzo's Deli.

This is a hot dog, wrapped in bacon, deep fried, and laid to rest on a bun blanketed with an egg and cheese cloud from heaven. The dog never touches the bun.

It is a slice of Heaven.
