“Worst experience probably ever”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2013

Worst food, worst service, worst atmosphere. Way overpriced, $2.50 for a tiny dry little wienie on a boring dry white bun, barely noticeable bland sauce (had to lift little 'pepperette type dry tasteless wieny" to find out if there actually was any sauce at all), stingy on the cheese, disinterested confusing service, disappointed looking other patrons. Stay away.

“Over Priced Hot Dogs”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

The hot dogs were extremely small. The sausages were hardly bigger than your finger. The bread is exactly like the ones you get at the supermarket so nothing special. Also the cheese was hardly there. The sauce was OK but for $2.50 per hot dog, I would have for something more substantial. We should gone down the street to Subway for a real lunch.

“Perfect lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013

The Buddha Dog offers up local food in the form of a hot dog. Local meat and butchers, local cheese, buns and an amazing array of sauces Make this a simple and delicious lunch for a family. The sauces range from sweet to savoury to spicy. We had some of each, cherry ketchup, beet-garlic aoli, smokey ketchup, beef chili sauce, balsamic tomato onion sauce and Dijon maple ginger sauce. Simple, straightforward food that was delicious and the staff were really nice and friendly. Hot dogs are like regular store hot dogs so if you are hungry get two, but at 2.50 each they're a bargain.

“Best Dog Ever. Great for Kids!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2013

I love hot dogs, but I wouldn't eat them nearly as often if it weren't for my toddler. At every chance he wants to visit his favourite restaurant, Buddha Dog. This is a unique place, which has crafted their product out of the finest local ingredients. Now I could probably gobble about 20 of these modestly sized dogs, but I resist and have the recommended human portion of 3. They are fresh, delicious, and top with amazing sauces that range from sweet to spicy. We have our favourite combos, but we are always trying the daily one, just to find some new taste sensations. We love the salads and the ice tea as well, but the real draw is watching our toddler enjoy the space, colour a buddha, and eat a natural hot dog that always leaves a smile on his face.

“overrated”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

Cute idea, but could add some chips or something with dogs. We had flights and sauces were tasy but not very much food for price. Ice tea was bland and watery, even though homemades. We got suckered in with the hype but were dissapointed.
