I left the capital district about 10 years ago and one of my favorite things to do whenever I returned was to go to Gus's. Last year I brought my wife and she was rather disappointed but she said it was because I've been talking about it for years. I wrote it off as a poor one off. Just went... More

This stand which has been around for decades is the mecca for small hotdogs as well as hamburgers and Italian sausage patties. While I found the meat sauce on the hotdogs a bit sour for my taste, this is a must if you are visiting the area. There is often a line but it moves very quickly. Prices are dirt... More

Great hot dogs, and the meat sauce is amazing. Love the sausage sandwich and the cheeseburgers. Never a bad time.

Greasy spoon type of place but you won't leave hungry for less than $10.00. Greek burger is superb. If your in Watervliet you must try this place.

Hot dogs are great but Charlies are still a notch above gus's. The place just looks dirty and piles of pre-cooked burgers and sausage just don't look at all healthy.
