The dogs are being slung at the new Duke’s hot dog joint that opened last week in Patchogue.
“Hot links and cold drinks,” is the slogan.
Duke’s is located at 58A South Ocean Avenue, across from James Joyce Irish pub.
The place is open until 4 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
“Everyone has been really surprised by how good a hot dog can be; it’s definitely an elevated dog,” said co-owner Mike Avino, who opened Duke’s with lifelong friend Ron Ciders.
“It’s a lot better than the hot dogs that you’re used to.”
“Hey, who made that?” asked customer Joe Priola of Patchogue after downing a dog Tuesday at Duke’s.
“I fancy myself a hot dog guy, and I think that was the best hot dog I ever had — crispy, snappy, and that’s critical in a good dog,” he then told the owners.
While Duke’s expects to pour craft beer from eight taps, the eatery doesn’t yet have its liquor license.
Duke’s holds about 30 people. The hours, as of July 2019, are noon to midnight on Tuesdays through Thursdays, then 4 p.m. to 4 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and noon to 9 p.m. on Sundays.
