JK's Restaurant, Danbury

Frank Talk: Family run since its founding in 1924, the hometown hangout is known for its “original Texas hot weiners” which are split, grilled and slathered with a secret “sauce.” Regulars also love their fries and onion rings; JK's fries, in fact, won our 2016 DVlicious "Best Fries" contest.
