Hot Dog Charlie’s is known for mini-hot dogs and special chili meat sauce. It is a family business that goes back three generations. Hot Dog Charlie’s that was first known as New Way Lunch, open in 1922 by Greek immigrants.
Back in 1922, before the health codes were placed, Strates served his mini dogs by lining up a dozen along the length of his arm to be dressed with mustard, onions and Charlie’s famous secret chili meat sauce recipe, who many have tried to duplicate over the years with no success. Today, you’ll still find photos and news stories of the famous technique in newspapers that are posted on the walls of its three locations.
The first store was opened local customers and those that came from miles always to buy a Charlie’s mini hot dog for 5 cents started calling the Strates “Charlie”. Eventually, the business name was changed to Hot Dog Charlie’s. The famous secret chili meat hot dog sauce is incredible.
Today, Hot Dog Charlie’s is run and operated by owner Chuck Fentekes and Florence Dimitriadis. There are four locations of Hot Dog Charlie’s: Clifton Park, Cohoes, Troy, and Rensselaer.
