The town's "hot dog man," he sells nothing but the best. Gourmet hot dogs with gourmet toppings at gourmet prices. He is a most friendly guy, so stop by to say "hello." And order one of his fine hot dogs while you're there. He's nothing short of an institution.

This business is only a streetside hot dog cart, with no other pretenses! Okay if you happen to be in Ridgefield and hunger attacks with force, but not in any way, shape or form a "dining establishment."

When they served kosher hot dogs they were better. A staple in Ridgefield and also the recipient of the best dog in ct in the past. Good for a quick bite while strolling down Main Street in this picturesque town. Inventive and tasty, the dogs are the best around.

If you like hotdogs, this is it. Outdoor café. Very friendly staff. This is a Cart type vendor, but sophisticated. Interesting hot dog menu.

This is one of the great features of downtown Ridgefield and a must stop for all visitors. A very creative menu consists entirely of Hot Dogs but features a wide variety of delicious home-made toppings. The service is always outstanding and the proprietor is patient, friendly, entertaining.

Definitely a must try when visiting Ridgefield. These hot dogs are insane! They were even featured on Martha Stewart- you dont get much more credibility than that. Interesting choices vs. the typical mustard and ketchup additions.

The hot dog man on Main Street is an icon known to everyone. He sells good dogs with all sorts of condiments and drinks from a portable cart and is present at all community events. Mike is a friendly guy who knows almost everyone and when he isn't there, his helpers are following in his footsteps. He works almost every... More

My wife and I visit from Florida a few times a year to visit our family here in Ridgefield. One of my stops is your Hot Dog stand, I 'm addicted. Thanks for the great Hot Dogs and you friendly and warm service. See you in a few months. Eddie & Barbara
