“A Decent Dog House”

The Famous Hot Weiner North
Ranked #34 of 131 Restaurants in Hanover
Restaurant details
Reviewed 11 September 2012

I've stopped by this place several times while passing through the Hanover area. Again, it's another local hot dog shop but this one is a tad different. First of all the hot dog in itself is quite a bit larger and I must say has a quality taste. Get the special and they come with mustard, onions and sauce along with fries.

I love a lot of diced onions on a hot dog and this place is the tops it that catagory. The only downer is that their "Greek" style sauce is lacking any taste. To be frank it's the worse that I have every had and if they threw in some seasoning in their sauce they would have a great hot dog! I have to agree with the review on the burger, It's shaped to fit in a hot dog bun and is very greasey. What doesn't help is that if you look at their grill surface you can see them floatinig in a conatiner of water/grease.

The fries are a disappointment as they take the short cut "frozen" route.

Again, this is a local haunt that has been around for a very long time and the locals do enjoy it!

Love the hot dogs with chili sauce, mustard and onions (but you can order them any way you want) My husband orders his "plain". (Told him it is embarassing to go to a weiner shop that specializes in hot dogs "with everything" but he doesn't listen!) Our family has been eating here for over 30 years. Hot dogs with everything are always consistent and good. Quick service and good prices. Only caveat... you will smell like onions after you eat there!

Love the Weiner shop!!! There is no other place like it. Fastest service around and the quality is always there. Town joke: you can always tell when someone eats here...you smell like onions for a couple of hours. So, don't stop by on your way to a wedding or special occassion. (definately worth the smell though)
