“How Can You not Love this Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Hot Dog Tommy's is what it is - a simple place serving hot dogs and frozen slushes for folks coming off the beach. They are not trying for haute cuisine. They dogs are good and the slushes perfect on a hot summer day. The service is upbeat. There is always a line, but it moves pretty quickly. You could always go to the Akroteria, but why bother.

“No wonder there was always a line!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

Great little place right by the beach - no customer seating that I could see but every time we passed this place, it had a line (not that it was slow - the line moved really quickly). The hot dogs were great but even better was the friendly staff member who took our order - great all around experience!

“Best beach food ! ”

We came across this place just by coincidence. We had to wait in line for some 15 minutes, not disappointed for sure ! Good choice of options and friendly service.

“Affordable lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

We have been going here for years and it is still the most reasonable option for a quick beach lunch. Pick your dog, a big bad dog (large) or a leaner weiner (small); then pick your topping. You can see the whole list of choices on their web site to save time before you go. The kids love Tom, he serves everything with a smile and a side of his signature schtick. There is no place to see and eat; it is a walk-up window on the sidewalk. Since it is just across the street from the beach, we usually take our food back to the beach or sit on a bench up on the promenade and watch the ocean. The food is decent but I would not wait in line for 45 minutes like some people do. They only accept cash and the nearest cash machine is inside the shop right on the corner. Have your money and your order ready before you get to the window because things move quickly.

“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

Being a hot dog freak we heard about this place to check out. So we made sure before we went home to order lunch there we ordered the leiner naked dogs for the kids and we all had the bad dogs (thicker) we ordered messy bessy junk yard dogs and the cup mac and cheese and kraut cup. Excellent. If you like hot dogs stop in to this little stand with big ratings from my family a do over every trip from now on
