The Sterns claim that Buffalo and, actually, all of upstate New York has high 'hot dog consciousness.' But hot dog-obsessed Michael says none are better than the dogs served at Ted's. The wieners are cooked on a grate over charcoal. As they sizzle away, the cook punctures the skin all over so the meat takes on maximum smoky flavor. The result is a succulent dog with crusty brown skin and bits of char. Ted's oniony hot sauce is the must-have condiment. There are great onion rings and a loganberry juice beverage to wash it all down.
