Best dog in the area, best cold beer, what more to say

This location is the better of the two Willy-Joe's, I would not go to the downtown location. This is by far better than Yocco's the other well known dog place.

We generally use the Lehigh Street location because it is closer and parking is easier. We go about once a month for crisp hot dogs w/everything (mustard, onion and chili). They are reminders of the hot dogs served in the Coal Region in the 50's. It could be cleaner and the entrance-way is a turnoff but don't let that deceive... More

My fascination with the taste and texture of a WJ dog bordered on devotion. That tasty hot dog, the magical chilli sauce, the snappy onions, and that moist,... More
