Came in when the place was deserted. It's housed in the Barter Theatre location on the park. Had a hotdog with goat cheese and the sweet potato fries... delicious! Nice little dining area and bar. Staff was wonderful and friendly. Come for the theatre or...More

I visited with my teenage daughter & her friend. First, it was very cold & windy outside, so I was at least anticipating some warmth, but that didn't happen. It was so cool inside that none of us were able to take off our coats....More

Awesomeness on a hotdog for sure! A must visit in Abington. Created some comedic dialogue post election. I had the 'lobbyist' and my husband had the 'dark horse'. Don't forget to order the FOIA fries.

We needed a quick lunch before a play. The chicken salad sandwich was fresh and tasty. My grandkids enjoyed the signs and got a history lesson about past presidential campaigns.

A really good place to eat. Food is good and employees are friendly. The prices are reasonable. Being in the same building with the Barter Theatre stage 2 is also a plus.

We found this place by accident and ended up sharing two dogs between the five of us plus a few drinks. Friendly staff, interesting decor and great loaded hot dogs!

We had extremely poor service. Waited over 20 minutes to get a menu despite asking the server twice. We observed other patrons being seated, given menus, and getting drinks before we even got the menu. We were attending a play at the Barter Theater and...More

This menu is definitely heavy on hot dogs and the political names for them are cute but if someone in your party wants something else, the selections are limited. There are 3-4 uninspiring salads and a couple of burgers, some finger foods and dozens of...More

My fellow Americans, We gather here today because Political Dogs serves up the tastiest all-beef hot dogs, grilled to perfection on buns baked fresh every morning and dressed with everything from the traditional ketchup, mustard, relish, sauerkraut, cheese and onions to the more exotic, like avocado, jalapeno marmalade, goat cheese, custom made relishes, and our homemade chili. Political Dogs: Always delicious, without debate. All the while, our savory sides always compliment our dogs, like a good chief-of-staff to a politician: fresh hand-cut french fries, sweet potato fries, tater tots, and potato salad. But in these partisan times, Political Dogs promises to reach across the dietary aisle to feature vegetarian dogs. We also have a kosher offering. Political Dogs further commits to never neglect the American classics: grilled burgers, mouth watering wings, fresh salads, and yummy sides, and all this delivered to you by our friendly servers, in the hippest environment in Glade Spring, if not all of Southwest Virginia. And in the unfortunate event that you cannot stop by and stay a while, we offer takeout. I'm hungry, and I approved this message.
