rustic charm, old school ambience, good food, walk back in time.

blackie's has been around forever, simple but tasty summer fare. fresh hotdogs, properly cooked, homemade relish and simply enjoyable experience. just off the highway, worth the short side-trip.

You can never go wrong when you stop in at Blackie's (unless it's on a Friday, in which case they are closed to keep the long standing tradition of meatless Friday). Hotdogs are delicious, inexpensive, and come out almost as fast as you can order. Burgers are good too, and you can't forget the legendary home made relish.

Everyone talks about this place but it's not anything special. Just a palin old hot dog stand. Their signature relish isn't the best I've had. Dogs are just o.k.

A great spot for a dog and shake. Excellent fast service, great prices, homemade relish the best around. A no frills stop provides what you need and brings back the nostalgia of days gone by. The hummels were tastier but the rosolos are ok too.

This is a simple place where you get simple Hot Dogs. Simple but GOOD. They also have their own special relish that is tangy and flavorful. My wife also likes their Cheeseburgers. Quick, reasonable, and outstanding. If you like hot dogs this is a place to go.

Blackie's Hotdog Stand is reknowned and has been in business for many, many years. The hot dogs are absolutely delicious and their method of cooking them makes them "snap" in your mouth when you bite. My wife and I visit often. Our youngest granddaughter LOVES Blackie's as well. One problem, though. You will not be able to eat just one... More

The old New England drive up hot dog place has not changed in years & years which is part of the charm. Although the hotdogs are not as good as they used to be I would still give them a 5. You can still get them in a white box to eat in your car. The menu is mostly limited... More

Have been coming here for years and you can not still find a better hot dog or hot relish in the area. They have added hamburgers to the menu. They also have very good shakes and ice cream. Love the white birch soda!

Basically an enclosed Hot Dog stand but it's been there forever and it's a Cheshire Institution. The relish is their own. It's good but I wouldn't travel miles just to try it.

Blackie's is great if all your looking for is a few dogs and shake, it'll be hard to find a better place in the area. They don't offer fries, but I can live without them, Don't forget to buy a jar of their relish to take home!
