Great hot dogs. Yummy fried clam strips. If your looking for a step up from the normal fast food places, this is it. Always consistent always delicious.

I have been to Doggie's many times. The place is in older building and they play music from the 50's and early 60's. The food here is really good. I have had the hot dogs, burgers, clam chowder and philly cheese steaks, all good. The seating is somewhat limited but I have never had to wait for a table. When... More

If you're looking for hotdogs, Doogie's is the place to be. You can get any number of things on your dog, chili, cheese, baked beans, carmelized onions or everything or nothing. The place is small but somehow you can always find a seat. That's because they have outside seating in the summer and during the cold months, customers just take... More

No matter your appetite or your desires for toppings, Doogies will fill the bill, and your stomach. Hot Dogs are their specialty. 8”, 16” 24” lengths. Natural Casings that go crunch. The only downer I have seen is a burger my Son bought. A combo with pastrami I believe. The burger was over cooked to the point of being dry.... More

Hot dog was great, as expected from a hot dog restaurant. Fries were very crispy. Décor is a little outdated, but theme is 1950-1960's

Cool retro atmosphere giant hotdogs. Great burgers. A little over priced. And chili needs major improvement but other than that very creative toppings and pretty tasty.

Finally decided to give it a try. I had never been here and was impressed with the variety of menu items beside hot dogs. Gotta try the Shrimp po boy next time. This time it was a 2 foot kraut dog with mustard. Guy at the next table had the same and we kinda edged each other on. Turned out... More

While my family and I were driving by this place, we saw the 2 feet long hot dog sign out front and decided to grab a bite. Although I have to say that after stepping in the restaurant we backed off. We both had the "Doogie" which is a 10" long dog with dijon horseradish sauce and caramelized onions. Oh,... More

The hot dogs were great. There are many different toppings to try. The service was excellent, especially the guy cleaning the dining room and engaging customers.
