Calling all summer foodies – we have a fun idea for you to try! We have compiled a list of must-try hot dogs throughout the region. Whether you like a classic Zweigle, or a gourmet sandwich, we have a dog that will satisfy your summer craving.


the rusty pig


Begin your journey in Geneva at the Rusty Pig for an award-winning experience. Known for their famous FLX barbecues, their double barrel sausage is flame broiled with made-in-house golden kraut BBQ sauce. Maybe not your typical “hot dog”, but the best sausage in Geneva!


hot dog


What says “summer” more than hot dogs and ice cream? At Henyo’s Gooney Village in Phelps, you can experience this elite combination for yourself. Henyo’s is a loved business that tends to fly under the radar, but it is no secret to locals that their dogs and sundaes are good.


kix on main storefront


For the next stop on the trail, treat yourself to what we call a "Canandaigua Classic"—a simple yet satisfying hot dog served with cheese, crispy onion rings and a side of homemade pickles from the KIX on Main Food Truck on Main Street in Canandaigua.

The Thirsty Turtle Garbage Plate


At the Thirsty Turtle, you can get a taste of a Rochester classic, a “garbage plate”, known as a “turtle plate” at this restaurant. Enjoy a Zweigles red hot with home fries or French fries, baked beans, and macaroni salad topped off with condiments of your choice.


Brews and Brats Food Tray


As you reach the end of the trail in Naples, treat yourself to Brew and Brats at Arbor Hill! Located in a 170-year-old carriage barn and offers delightful locally sourced and cured meats, including sausages and bratwursts! Brew and Brats shares a location with Arbor Hill Winery, so you can pair your summer “dog” with some Finger Lakes wines and craft beverage.
