This ain't no haute cuisine, this is drive-in comfort food

I come here when life becomes too complicated. When I can't bear to eat another bite of gluten free range organic kale and artisanal star-up hand distilled coco water served over chilled soapstone cubes. I come here for a hot dog. There are other things on the menu, but I care not for them. They... read more

Don't order the hot dogs. The real winner at Doogie's is the steak and cheese! If I'm craving a philly cheese steak, I'll be coming back here. The fried clam strips were also very good.

Doogie's is a very simple place, but they are committed to serving good food. There is more on the menu than I expected - hot dogs, hamburgers, seafood, chicken. We each had a hot dog. I am not a toppings person, mustard is all I need. The 10 inch dog was plenty for me. It was grilled well and had... More

Went for lunch and had the lobster roll. This lobster roll was just that, lobster on a split roll, no filler. Came with melted butter. Wife had the 'Caveman' burger and it was awesome. Friends had the 24" hot dog and one of the burgers which were also great. Went back the next day for a cup of lobster bisque... 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

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 Turnpike for many... 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
