A small hole in the wall. Fast service, no nonsense, but amazing relish and spicy mustard on dogs. Diet root beer option was a bonus! Must try if you ever find yourself in the area.

Black use had been around for years, best hot dogs and homemade spicy relish. Still closed on Fridays to observe the old Catholic rule of not eating meat on Friday

You can read all the great things about Blackie's here, so I won't comment. But I would like to relay a conversation: A dad with his 6 year old: "When I was six my dad brought me here" Overhearing this I chuckled. Dad turned to me with a quizzical look, Me: "When I was six my older brothers took me... More

Hotdogs and their special relish! That is why you go to Blackie's. Do you want a hotdog that is fresh and snaps when you bit into it? Do you want a home-made relish that I've never seen duplicated? Then stop in to Blackie's for a dog and birchbeer! If you don't have the time to sit and eat they do... More

Simple, simple, simple....and delicious. Walk through garage doors for a hot dog with homemade relish and you won't be disappointed! No sides for sale except chips but somehow that's ok. You'll be back even without frills! Oh, remember cash they don't take credit cards.

These are excellent hot dogs. Pleasant, clean little dive. Utz chips and birch beer, that's all you need. My bare bones cheeseburger was good, too. Don't go if you need fries or the emotional equivalent of a white tablecloth. A good value.

Went today at 3pm with my father in law. We went with great anticipation from TV fame. While the atmosphere was pretty rad, Dogs run of the mill. I would recommend all give it a try. We will probably go again.

Who are these people that love this place so much??? I've been hearing about this place for many years, and finally had the opportunity to stop by. It is a hole-in-the-wall, which in itself doesn't have to be terrible, but there were some unsavory looking characters both in front of and behind the counter! I wouldn't care about that either...

Aside from the hot dogs, Blackie's is a place that has to be visited just for the fact that it has been opened for decades and is a recognized business in all of New England.
