The best dog in town

Although the switch from kosher to nonkosher hot dogs went unnoticed with the new owner, the flavors have not significantly changed. Consistently good and quick. A landmark of Ridgefield and deservedly so.

it's a hot dog stand with class, good dogs, several mustards, drinks. Park benches near by were you can eat your dog, and institution in town.

Chez Lenard hot dog vendors are out in all types of weather--purveying gourmet dogs and savoir faire! If you'd like a quick bite while you stroll the scenic streets of Ridgefield, this is your spot.

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.
