The only dog like it. A Tidewater tradition...And Philip keeps it going. I have been eating "Tony Dogs" for just short of 50 years.

I have to say that i do love Tonys Hotdogs. I have been eating them since i was a kid. The food there is great but the owner has a very bad attitude. He never smiles and has had a bad attitude for at least 50 years. You couldn't want a better hot dog. When i come back here to... More

Tony's hot dogs...just saying that out loud makes me salivate. Truly a touchstone place in my life as I have shared hot dogs here with my granddad, my dad, and my wife. First on Lafayette in Norfolk in the Original Tony's and now in his son's place in Virginia Beach, this place is home to the best hot dog in... More

The dogs crunch when you bite. Oh yes, hot dogs, bag of chips, and a drink. Thank you sir. Next. Hormel hot dogs, perfectly coated with mustard, ketchup, and chili. Onions available but not for me. Fast service, always polite, We have driven an hour one way for years to enjoy Tony's delectable dogs.

Old fashioned hot dog stand, spicy dogs, but very good. Supposed to be an old family recipe. If in Richmond, try Joey's Hot Dogs, same family recipe but tastes different.

I let my GPSr search fast food for lunch and Tonys Hot Dogs came up a little over a half mile away, so I went to try it out. It is small, with a counter one one side and several tables as well. I sat at the counter and the server told me that payment was cash only, which was... More

Disappointed in the dogs and the owner was the rudest person I have ever met. I will never go back! There are too many other good hot dog places in town for anyone to go here.

I've eaten these hot dogs since the days of Bacalis' Hot Dogs on City Hall Ave. The Original Tony's on Lafayette Blvd after that. When Tony passed away and the family broke up, I started going to Tony's on Newtown Rd. Jerry, the server, is as nice as can be. Phil, the owner, is a complete jerk. The last time... More
