I love hot dogs. Give me hot dogs over burgers any day. That being said there are LOTS of places in Birmingham to satiate your hot dog hunger. I prefer dining at this Gus's location.

First, let me say that the location in the picture with this review is NOT the 4th Avenue North location for which these reviews reference. It's not even close. The 4th Avenue North location is the textbook definition of a "hole in the wall." But don't let that fool you. The service is quick, and the food is outstanding. If... More

Not as good as it used to be, but maybe I'm just getting old. Still the best hotdog in Birmingham any way you like it and I like it with the Kraut, onions and sauce; best hot dog atmosphere. Stand and eat.
