No nonsense place for really good hot dogs. Grab a quick bite or sit down and relax. You can do either here.

Hot dogs are king at this long time (88 years) roadside restaurant but the hamburgers are great as well. A couple of quirks: closed on Fridays and no fries.

Blackies is know for its hot relish. But, it's not all to rave about. They use Hummel hot dogs which are good. But, you can buy those in the store yourself. They are just cooking them for you. Plenty of other hot dog stands around. I never understood the huge attraction to the place.

I have been going to Blackie's for 50 years. My Dad took us there since we were kids, and I took my kids there. They only take cash so be prepared. They have a hot relish that is NOT sweet and is excellent. The menu is very basic, hot dogs and burgers, soda, milk shakes and chips, no fries. Although... More

Always busy but never a wait. Unduplicated. Don't miss the jalapeño relish. There's rarely a time I go by there without stopping in for one of their great hot dogs. Fries are good too.

Blackie's has been around the Cheshire community like forever. It's your typical roadside stand , severing hot dogs, hamburgers, fries and, beverages.. The is indoor seating , but very limited space.

The building is not fancy, the selection of food very limited, but if you are a hit dog lover, Blackies has the best hotdogs! They are famous all over the United States for their relish, but I love the hotdogs with the spicy mustard they use and always have a nice cold birch beer soda with them. Delicious! Of course,...

Anytime we are in the area we need to stop and get a couple of hotdogs at Blackie's. Get in line and tell them how many you want -- they are ready almost immediately. It is a must to put on Blackie"s special hotdog relish -- I hope you like it spicy. They are closed on Fridays so make sure... More

For what they stand for and how they run their Business, you never see such quality anymore. Sometimes I forget that other towns don't know about blackies, which is fine, it's our little gem. I love blackies so much. Their relish is of course their main show piece, especially on top of their signature dog. Doesn't get any better than... More
