“Great hotdogs and cold drinks”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Be prepared to wait i line and read the tips on how to order. This is a great experience and definitely worth stopping at while in Cape May. Hotdog Tommy is quite an outgoing character and very humorous. He has a gentle demeanor and makes everyone feel welcome. The choices of hotdogs are exceptional. I would recommend the Texas Tommy, but there is something for everyone. Definitely get the Big Bad Dog and leave the Leaner Weiner for the kids. It is still a good size. The cool slush drinks are very good as well. The service is excellent as is the food. It is a nice get away from typical beach fare and only 1/2 a block away from the beach. Worth going to and worth getting a beverage as well.

“Line up for a great dog”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

There may be a long line at Hot Dog Tommy's but it is well worth the wait. Lots and lots of topping combos to choose from or make up your own toppings for the dogs. I love the BAD dogs and my husband loves the leaner weaner dogs. Have been there several times already this summer and always a treat to see Tom wearing a smile and his hot dog on his head. Love Love Love these hot dogs. A great inexpensive lunch or snack at the beach.

“The best dogs are bad dogs!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

LOVED Tommy's dogs! They come in 2 sizes: bad dogs (all Angus beef and large) or leaner wieners (regular hot dogs). With many different topping selections, it was hard to choose but we found the reuben dog and the Jersey slaw dog to be excellent. You may be standing in line awhile, but it's worth it!

“Lunch at the beach!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

I finally checked one off my bucket list! Stood in line behind the "yellow ropes" and was entertained by the owner with his wit and funny personality! The "bad dogs" were delicious! Once you learn the lingo, and order your dogs you are served with a smile! Will be back again before the end of the season!
