The Best Hotdogs In MA Have Been Delighting Guests For Over 100 Years

Dina Fantegrossi ·

 Jack's Hot Dog Stand has begun its 101st year of service in the same downtown North Adams spot where it all began.

 

This family-owned retro lunch counter has not changed much since it was first opened by owner, John Levanos' grandfather Jaffros in 1917.

 

The hot dogs may be small and simple-looking compared to other joints, but the taste is what scored Jack's the honor of Yankee Magazine's pick for Best Hot Dogs in Massachusetts.

Custom-made by Wohrle’s in Pittsfield, Yankee recommends ordering your dogs “with everything” (mustard, relish, and onion) or“chili cheese," which involves wrapping a dog in white American cheese and slathering it in house chili sauce.

Don't forget to add an order of Jack’s famous, hand-cut fries!

Jack's also serves burgers and pulled pork sandwiches, but it is the hot dogs that made them famous and allow them to remain a local favorite to this day.

 

Joints like Jack's don't stick around for over a century unless they are doing something right! But don't take it from us, make your way to North Adams and judge for yourself!
