I guess I can let you folks in on a local secret. The Hot Dog Guy is from Chicago and brought both product and personality with him to Cave Creek. Over the years he's provided us with really great dogs and great conversation. His push cart operation has moved to various locations in Cave Creek and... read more

We were out on ATVs and wanted a quick place to grab a bite. We swung by the Hot Dog guy in the parking lot of the Wild West Mall and were very happy. The service was fast and personable, the dogs and options were great, and the seating was perfect for a bite to eat in the sunshine! I... More

This is a cart in front of a mall building at the west end of Cave Creek. The hot dogs are first class and the buns help make these dogs among the best ever. Had the Chicago. Really tasty with fresh ingrediants. The guy with the dogs is very friendly and will make the hot dogs any way you want.... More

Mobile hot dogs stand in parking lot of Wild West Pawn shop. Good for a quick lunch bite. Food is good but limited.

Thanks for the review! #We just opened up on Wednesday for Season #5 ... You said that the food was good.. Thanks! And yes, it is what it is... A Mobile Hot Dog Cart, but we take our business seriously and do strive for a really high quality hot dog (Vienna Brand, all beef served on a fresh baked bun).... More

We are locals in the Cave Creek / Carefree AZ area, and we frequent Jerry's "The Hot Dog Guy" stand in front of the Wild West Pawn Shop (and out at Bartlett Lake in the summer). First, Jerry is a local fixture: fun loving, personable, and outgoing as all the previous reviews state. But he is also serious about his... More

I visit Jerry often and believe he serves up one of the best hot dogs around. I'm especially partial to his coney dog with cheese. Along with quality Vienna beef, he applies just the right amount of steam to soften it up. Along with great dogs, Jerry is always upbeat and will put a smile on your face!
