"YES! Jersey Italian Dogs are the best! Once you try the fried peppers, onions and the best part- the potatoes!! on a hot dog - you'll never forget it! this is delicious! Adjust the amount of garlic to taste- I just use garlic powder."

"Reminds me of ***e Dee's in Newark. You can't get pizza bread in S. Jersey, so I use good Italian rolls. These are the best."

"Not the best combination in my opinion.........serving the potatoes as a side was fine ....I knew it sounded like too much garlic, so I didn't use that much. But we just did your regular relish, onion and mustard on the hot dogs after trying one with the potatoes on it , it wasn't anything special."

"I love garlic and potatoes. When I say this I thought PERFECT. It turned out NOT!!

Cut the amount of garlic in half. It is overwhelming. I will not be making it again."
