Great franks with a side of retro, history and special relish

For decades we've enjoyed the Blackie's tradition - 3 dogs and a birch beer. This place looks like a converted old tyme gas station that was converted to host sock hops and poodle skirts. The real thing, not a retro look, this is all genuine. The dogs are great, their special spicy relish with the... read more

hot dogs are ok. . nice local place to go for a hotdog but i wouldn't knock myself out to go there. get a bunch of hummels, and fry them in vegetable oil and you have blackies basically. this is a local hangout with the same people going all the time

Best hot dogs with their own home-made relish. Every time we go to Waterbury it is a must to stop in at Blackie's for their hot dogs. Still looks like it did when it first opened years ago. Always clean with personable staff

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.

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.

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
