The REAL Italian Hot Dog - Classic 8 Pack

Jimmy Buff’s ships its legendary Italian hot dogs nationwide on Goldbelly! Unknown to most outsiders, this New Jersey classic features an all-beef frank or Italian sausage slathered with mustard and topped with fried peppers, onions, and chunks of potatoes all tucked into a crater-sized cavity of a fluffy pizza bread loaf. Despite being named after the creator, Jimmy “Buff” Racioppi, whose nickname came from his card-playing tactics, this Sicilian sausage sammie is no bluff.

Just beyond the Hudson River lies an Italian hot dog haven. Jimmy Buff’s is an iconic West Orange, New Jersey, joint that created the Italian hot dog — a fried frank topped with fried peppers, onions, and potatoes inside an Italian pizza bread roll. As the first of its kind, Jimmy “Buff” Racioppi and his wife, Mary, took their card night creation and opened their own shop in 1932. To this day, this Jersey institution is still run by the Racioppi family. Jimmy Buff’s has been named one of the “20 Best Hotdogs in the US” by Yahoo Food. The Italian hot dog is also a favorite of astronaut brothers and New Jersey natives, Scott and Mark Kelly, who brought a Jimmy Buff’s t-shirt to the International Space Station.

Just wanted to let you know I ordered from Goldbelly and the food was amazing... my grandparents grew up right near the original location and my mother would always tell us stories about how, after leaving work at Pabst (35 years), my grandfather would occasionally stop at Jimmy Buffs and pick up what they lovingly called "grease jobs" to bring to home to Caldwell. Fast forward 50 plus years and I was stoked to be able to order and make "grease jobs" for my mom's 75th birthday...She (and me!) couldn't have been happier. Exactly the same, she remembered! Anyway, Thanks for keeping it going. The food was amazing!!!

A few months ago I ordered a Jimmy Buffs double kit. It was packed excellent! Everything was neatly packed in  ice wraps and padded! The food was amazing of course! I’m yearning for another soon! Thank you to Goldbelly and Jimmy, Tommy and the entire JIMMY BUFFS team for all you do! Growing up in Irvington in the 60’s I remember going to the Irvington location in Springfield Ave. “ Uncle Mike” or “Big Mike” as we lovingly called him was at the helm cooking away! I was amazed and awestruck as to the operation. Keep up the excellent work and customer service James!

A great big shout out and thank you to Jimmy Buff’s! I ordered through goldbelly and had it delivered today for my husband’s 60th birthday (which is tomorrow but can’t have meat since it is Good Friday). We live in Flemington NJ (we also had it delivered when we lived in Texas). It was, as always, absolutely amazing! I grew up in West Orange and Jimmy Buff’s was a staple in our house!! The food was sooo fresh; it was like we picked it up from the store. Thank you,  thank you! COVID-19 will not keep us down!  
Megan - Flemington, NJ
I have waited almost 3 years for this. Cranked out 2 singles just for a tease. Growing up in Newark (very proud of that) there is nothing that compares to a Jimmy Buffs Italian Hot Dog. Jimmy Buffs, U are top shelf in my book. Thank U so much for everything. We will be back!!! Oh I had my wife keep the windows closed so I could close my eyes & enjoy that aroma. 
Don - Altoona, PA
My wife Jean and I are from Newark, and have always gone to Buffy’s in Hanover.  Met James' father a few times and he was always nice to us. We live in Massachusetts since we left Newark in 76 for an army life. Just received the box from Goldbelly and Jimmy Buff's with 16 hot dogs. I cried eating them today as it reminded me of home .   I ordered 16 jimmy buffs hotdogs from New Jersey Sunday and got them Thursday.  We loved them and I cried eating them as they reminded me of home.

Excellent packaging. Quality was excellent. Items were delivered at or below 40 degrees F. Apparently there was a problem with Fed Ex Labeling system and I got upgraded to overnight delivery! Excellent Customer service all around! Next time I am New Jersey I will be visiting Jimmy Buff and family at the West Orange Location! Until then stay safe and healthy everyone!

I’ve used Goldbelly before, therefore was not surprised that the process was very satisfactory. Of most importance was that, I was able to send some friends, a taste of NJ. They could not have been more surprised and, thrilled!

Everything was great!! Greaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat, great, great, great, great, great great, great, great!! It was a holiday surprise for my nephew and to say he was excited to get his taste of home is a tremendous understatement. As soon as I finish sending this message off, I'm going to place another order - this one to his son. Although his son did not grow up in New Jersey, we've introduced him to Italian Hot Dogs, and he has fully embraced his Jersey food tasting roots. :)
