This Groupon is valid for all types of Crif dogs and drinks. Handmade beef-and-pork Crif dogs can be deep-fried, wrapped in ham, and topped with an egg to create a Morning Jersey, or wrapped in bacon and slathered with chili, coleslaw, and jalapeños to create a Spicy Red Neck. Drinks include shakes, floats, beer, lemonade, iced tea, and bottled soft drinks.
In 1999, Brian Shebairo and his childhood chum Chris Antista planned to sell hot dogs in the alley behind Lansky Lounge, a now-defunct speakeasy that Chris operated on Manhattan's Lower East Side. After two years of sampling franks in hot-dog joints across the northeast, the pair traded in their motorcycles for tongs and opened Crif Dogs—"a name they came up with when Brian tried to say his former partner's name with a hot dog in his mouth." Topped with unlikely but classic American ingredients such as coleslaw, fried eggs, cream cheese, and chopped baseballs, the handmade and naturally smoked Crif Dogs have made it onto Martha Stewart's list of favorite NYC hot dogs for their originality.
