“Grilled hot dogs and buns and an EXCELLENT price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

Love hot dogs, saw this place on the street, and stopped in for lunch. Had two dogs, and thought I'd died and gone to heaven. Plus they were really nice.

“Tasty dogs and heavenly juice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

The dogs were crispy and almost burnt to perfection. The onions and relish were yummy. The papaya juice was so smooth and delicious.
A bit crowded and hectic at 6pm, but the staff work efficiently and all was done well. Happy to have eaten here.

“That beautiful snap”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

I still feel healthy 2 days after a cup of the juice. Try the dog just with mustard; the kraut and onions are excellent, but these bad boys don't need the accoutrement.

“Go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2014

Aside the great, delicious, hot-dogs, you must have at least one of the smoothies (they have some really different flavours!) and the fried oreo dessert. Pure magic. The staff was very friendly, also, what made the whole experience really fun.

“Good dog”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

Historic. Good dog. Price was ok (average for NYC). I liked the dogs but I feel Nathans are better and better history and environment. For the money Nathan's is the way to go but all the way out on Cooney Island
