This small place on the Post Road serves up the best darn hot dog anywhere, period. The bacon cheese dog is simply to die for, it's simply wonderful.

Hey you can't know the food, the hotdogs and hamburgers are awesome and griddle fried. The service is quick but the guy that takes your order rides the very thin line between matter of fact and rude.

This is where the discerning diner goes for the best hot dog in Fairfield County and fries that are freshly made everyday! For locals this small red house is a landmark that we love!

Rawley's used to be so much better. I know it's a town landmark, but it's gone downhill in the 20 years we have lived here. Went one day this summer and they had run out of hot dogs. Hello, you are a hot dog place! Weak fries, good shakes.

It was a hot dog. There was nothing special about it. The toppings were pretty good. It tasted good and it was served quickly, but geez, it was a hot dog. It's a quirky-looking place, really looks rundown, even from the inside. Definitely no-frills. Tiny restroom. Hot day, no A/C so the air was stifling inside. It wasn't expensive, but... More

I remember Rawley as a kid, first with Bob Rawley then with Chico. I understand that the hot dogs they use to have aren't available but the meat was tasteless, the hamburgers smaller than McDonald's Dollar menu and had less taste and much less appeal. At first bite I thought I had bitten some of the paper it was wrapped... More

Go once to say you've been there. It's rustic and food is OK. There are a lot better burger and hot dog stands. Casey's in Vero Beach puts this place to shame.

After seeing this drive in on the Food Network then logging on to the website..we were eager to try it out. Spoiled by the now closed"Callahans" of Ft. Lee,N.J. ..we knew a good fried hotdog when we ate it. This drive in was a huge letdown. The service was fine..it is a drive in.....but the fried dogs were so skinny... More
