with the limited time i have back on the east coast, i have created a short list of restaurants i know i need to revisit. near the top of the list is Rutt’s Hut. known for their “rippers” (fried hot dogs) and their homemade relish, Rutt’s Hut has been serving good cheap food for decades. i ordered a classic meal of 2 dogs with a side of chili and gravy fries. deliciousness like this doesn’t exist in Cali so i’m gonna enjoy these types of meals while i can.
