a tale of two chicks eating hot dogs
I met Krista, aka Grandma Downtown in the summer when I interviewed her for the first time. Since then we’ve become friends and even shot ChicpeaTV Episode 2: Baking with Grandma Downtown which was so fun. Krista is a cool chick, always down for an adventure. It was time for us to catch up so she suggested we try Boulevard Drinks. A Jersey City hot dog spot in JSQ that’s been around for over 62 years and a local favorite.
I am known for being a healthy eater of some sorts, I work out religiously and try to maintain a healthy diet (except for when I am blogging). That being said, when I was a kid my favorite food to eat were hot dogs… Living in Montreal, I remember going into a fast food joint every other day and ordering two steamies (steamed hot dogs) with ketchup. It was my thing, I have a sincere emotional connection to hot dogs… Thankfully I grew out of it.
Krista picked me up the other day and we drove to Boulevard Drinks in JSQ. We ordered two chili cheese hotdogs and an orange drink.
HEAVEN!! It had a nice kick to it, and the hot dogs were divine… it really hit the spot…and the whole thing cost less than $10! “Hey Krista, this one is on me I said”.
After one chili cheese dog, I decided to order one with ketchup for old time sake. I was so happy. I am all about eating healthy but two hot dogs can go a long way and I wasn’t hungry until night time. #winning.
Boulevard Drinks is right outside the JSQ path! It’s a must try!

Hey Chicpea, if you can, check out another JC hotdog institution, Twan’s Hot Dog truck at the corner of Montgomery & Merseles Streets, across from Ferris HS… the truck has been there for like over 50 years, has fed generations of students, the guy there is easy to talk to, and I think the franks are good… you be the judge!
Today exactly 4 years later they donated food to many local hospital! Today they fed employees of bayonne jersey city and Hoboken hospitals. They not only have the best dog in town …..and I know I’ve been going for over 35 years…….they’re generosity is beautiful. I love Jersey city . I love Blvd drinks…..and the orange drink is my fav too.
