Hi Miliaar,
Outside of Newark and other NJ Portuguese neighborhoods and families, the Portuguese Natas pastries are not well known.

What Is The Name of the Famous Paterson, NJ Hot Dog Stand?

What is the hot dog stand name?
Frank's Reply:
Hi Noreen;

I'm not certain which of the Hot Dog stands you are thinking of as Paterson has a long history of hot dogs, including the "Hot Texas Weiner." Contrary to what Texans think, there is a widely held school of thought that says the "Hot Texas Weiner" was created and made famous in Paterson, NJ

Apparently this all started back in 1924 when a hot dog stand was opened and run by a Greek man on Paterson Street in downtown Paterson. The name of his hot stand remains a mystery.

In 1936 a former employee of this Greek Hot Dog stand left and opened Pappas Lunch, later called Libby's Hot Grill, and is now Libby's Lunch. Since then, many former employees of Libby's left to open other Hot Dog stands in Patterson. One of them is the Falls View Grill which opened in 1949 and also became famous for it's Texas Weiner's. The "original" Falls View Grill closed sometime in the eighties.

Former employees of The Falls View Grill have also moved on to open their own "Hot Dog Stands" including The Colonial Grill on Chamberlain Avenue in Paterson, and the Hot Grill on Lexington Avenue in nearby Clifton.
