- $20 for four Groupons, each valid for $7 worth of hot dogs, burgers, fries, and drinks ($28 total value)
Growing up in New Jersey, the four Gio brothers—John, Anthony, Nick, and Carmen—all agreed on their favorite kind of hot dog: the ripper. Each ripper is deep-fried in oil that's free of cholesterol and trans fat, then nestled into a toasted bun and smothered with toppings. At the brothers’ Rippers Roadstand, those fixings include chopped potato, red onion sauce, and their signature bacon kraut. Similar toppings, such as jalapenos and A1 sauce, crown 100% beef burgers, while the cooks also hand-cut heaping portions of fries in house. Draft beers and fountain sodas accompany this culinary trinity of franks, patties, and spuds, which guests savor while seated atop bright red stools or giant mounds of ketchup.
