Great lunch or quick dinner stop

Known for their great hotdogs with whatever you want on them. They have a 2 foot hotdog that is a full meal for one or great for sharing. Staff is pleasant and service is fast. They have specials every day and they are all reasonably priced and good. They have been at this location on the Berlin... read more

I am not sure why this restaurant is so popular, but popular it is. I was surprised that the smallest hot dog available was 10" for a plain. I ordered a pair for takeout and requested mustard, onions and relish. I was told that I would have to put the condiments on myself. No big deal except it became very... More

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 Décor is a little outdated, but theme is 1950-1960's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.
