Great Hot Dogs and Relish!

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!

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.

This is like an old time soda fountain where you get great hotdogs and burgers. They specialize in hot dogs with their famous relish. You sort of walk in and say how many you want and they yell it back and within minutes your dogs are up. It's nice when you order 5 to go so you get a little... More

The facility and menu harken back to an earlier, simpler time. Good dogs and cheeseburgers; excellent shakes. A great local place to fill a whole in both your psyche and your gut.

These dogs go down real easy. The relish is a must. Very famous in Waterbury and CT. Still has the old time charm but clean inside.

Came here as I had an appointment not that far and was hungry. Customer service in the place was great. Hotdog was a good classic American dog. Would stop here again.

Antiquity of Blackies is the best reason to visit not so sure if hot dogs taste as good as the memory of visiting on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon to culminate a visit to the beach at any rate this is definitely a Cheshire icon!

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
