Can anyone recall the name of two restaurants that served Mexicans(either hotdogs or hamburgers) in the 1940's & 50s? One was on Mohawk Street past the railroad tracks and the other was on route 5 across from the country club. Does anyone know the original recipe using tomatoes, peppers, and oil? I anxiously await your "serving Mexicans" wisecracks.

who's got the best Mexican hot hamburgers now?

Chet's was the best but they recently took them off the menu.

Donna's has them, but they are only OK nothing special and barely spicy.

Where else?

Not exactly sure what they put in the hamburg, maybe onions, peppers and hot sauce? Actually, I have never eaten what people around the valley call mexican hots. Only mexican hots we ever ate were the ones from the old Brownie's in Amsterdam and they were not made with hamburg.

it took two days to make the sauce and cool it down. Veronica made it for years. Lasted about a week depending how busy it was. I think Nancy makes it at Crosway's and I also heard Al has it in Frankfort at his son's place.
Yea make the Papa or Mama burger, add sauce and more onions. whalaa Mexican (get it)

The Manley recipe is in the St. Peter and Paul Russian Orthodox cookbook. When I get home,I'll post it. I made 4 batches for Christmas -2 were mild and 2 were hot- gifts. They were a hit. Several people asked for another jar!

I worked at the teepee many years ago and made a lot of mexicans...never thought I'd want to see another one but now I wish I had the original recipe. Helped make it many times but never actually knew the recipe.

Ive had a lot of different mexicans and make a pretty good one myself, The best mexicans were at the little burger stand behind Loviers Dairy. It was a sauce that was put on top of a burger. We rode snowmobiles to the Salisbury snowmobile club this winter and had a good mexican there but someone said they close all summer. The food there was very good but they are out in the boondocks.
