Small place that you can get to from Main Street or Pratt Street. We each had the Deputy Dog which were on nicely grilled buns. The deputy dog is a hot dog topped with pulled pork and cheese. They were very good and very filling. Also had some tasty fries. We stopped after a UCONN basketball game and the place... More

Here you will get some of the most unusual hot dogs you can find, but all of them taste great. Not too many places toast hot dog buns any more, but Woody's does not cut any corners. They also have a bar area that is nice, but never took off. It looks more like a man cave. The hardest part... More

Had a regular hot dog for lunch and then a deputy dog for dinner. Curly fries were also great. Loved it.

Woody's is known for their hot dogs, and on this basis alone is worth the trip; Foot-long dogs are made to order with any number of toppings. The reuben dog and underdog were especially good. This is a no-frills, cash-only joint with lots of history and an oddly placed, if sincere, miami dolphins-themed bar adjoining. It's hard to recommend for... More

I visited Woody's because of recommendations from friends in Connecticut. They knew I loved pulled pork and informed me that I had to have a Deputy Dawg. Pulled pork, footlong dog, bbq sauce, and cheese..he'll yeah! Woody's was worth the stop.

I had the fish and chips which was nothing special. I guess it would have been better if I had gotten a hot dog which I hear they are good at. It definitely wasn't the fish and chips.

I popped into Woody's whilst staying in Hartford on business for a couple of days and can't be happier that I did. I had The Underdog (hot dog with bacon and cheese sauce) and it was hands down the best hot dog I've had in my life. The hot dog itself was really tasty, meaty and not too greasy at... More

It takes a little looking to find this place but worth it. Deputy dog was so good and the staff is super friendly. Will definitely visit more frequently!

You can't go wrong with Woody's when you want to grab a quick bite while in Downtown Hartford. Every time i am in town Wood's is a must stop for me. I always have the Chicago dog and it never dissapoints.
