MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- After 98 years in one location, Walter's Hot Dogs , known for its cherished family recipe, is expanding -- again!! -- and opening a third location in Stamford.
This is the second big announcement for the family-owned company which earlier this year said it would open a sit-down restaurant in White Plains as well as a third food truck.
"The right opportunities came along, in locations we loved, where we felt we could bring the Walter’s experience to more people," explained Katharine Warrington Woodward, a granddaughter of Owner Walter Warrington.
"After having our food trucks all over Westchester and Connecticut the past two years, we were really able to see where the biggest demand was and where a second and third location would work best.
"We are so excited to bring a piece of Westchester to Stamford."
The new Harbor Point spot, located in the space by the fountain in Commons Park previously occupied by Mr. Frosty’s and The Hut, will be a Chinese pagoda-shape just like the original and will have order and pick up windows. All customers will be able to order outside, like they do in Mamaroneck, and sit outside in the park.
The menu will be the same, and feature the stand's famous hotdogs, a blend of beef, pork and veal, split down the middle and grilled to golden brown perfection in a secret sauce. (Go HERE to read more; the eatery is vying for "DVlicious Best Hotdogs" in Westchester).
Curly fries, waffle fries, fried potato puffs, homemade hand-scooped ice cream, milkshakes, Italian ices and funnel cake fries dusted with powdered sugar will also be on the menu.
The Puffy Dog, a hot dog served with fried and smashed potato puffs in a bun, and formerly a food truck only option, will also be available.
To make things even better, the location -- just like White Plains -- will be an Uber Eats delivery.
Stamford Walter's is set to open by early to mid-August. The White Plains spot, at 186 Mamaroneck Ave., is set to open sometime in the fall. Go to www.waltershotdogs.com/ for more information.
