I'm not sure "famous" is the correct term to describe that hot dog. Overall it was subpar at best. The fries were good and the banana pudding wasn't bad but the service was very very slow at 11am. I won't be back and best of...More

This is where you go for inexpensive food not the ambience or location. All items were very good - chicken salad sandwich, FF, onion rings and Dew Drop Inn Hotdog all the way. The hotdog chili was more like hamburger but less sloppy than a...More

Always a great daily lunch if you are a more-than-best-Mobile hot dogs person. Surprisingly GREAT seafood gumbo. Mostly packed at lunch is you don't get there early. Servers prompt and efficient.

Homey, crowded, but a fun stop. We had 7 year old with us, and it was fine!. Clean and comfortable. Extremely busy right at meal times, but thats half the fun. You gotta go once. I had chili burger and it was delish!
