We stopped here on the way home from the beach last weekend for a filler as we had a late lunch and had been meaning to stop here sometime as we drive by here all the time. We ordered the corn dog for my wife (she claims it's one the best she's had) and I had the Chicago Dog with... More

WHAT?? A hotdog place where they serve veggie dogs, with all the fixings topped off with fries and black cherry soda??? OMG I'm in heaven! Diet, I'll see you tomorrow. For the non veggies , their foot long hot dog is a must. With fries of coarse. Don't let this place go without at least a try. You'll be back.

I have passed Hot Spot Cool Eats for the last several months going to and coming from the shore for work. Today I stopped in. I had a great meal for the foods they advertise. The fries were great, my hot dog was fantastic, and took advantage of them carrying Smith Island cake and had a piece. I plan to... More

We heard this spot was good so decided to stop... I had the Oyster Puppies(oysters on a roll) and my husband had the hot dog with chili and fries. My oysters were the best breaded oysters I think I've ever had! Very cute inside, though we sat outside at a picnic table in the sun. Since they cook to order... More

Over 25 minute wait for hot dog and fries and the place was not busy at all. The hotdog tasted ok, the fries were soft and greasy. Not to mention overpriced. Not worth the wait!

Our family stopped here with our 2 dogs and had a great time. We were able to sit outside in a cute garden with our dogs while enjoying their soft pretzels and specialty hot dogs. The cream soda and Smith Island Cake for dessert was definitely a plus as well! We definitely will be stopping here again.

This is a really great place for hot dogs. The fries are also wonderful. It takes a little time to get your order but it is worth the wait. Nice place to take the kids.

We found this place on the way to OC and liked it so much, we stopped again on the way home. Clean, friendly and the food is cooked to order. Between my husband and I and bothe stops, we tried four different dogs and they were all outstanding. Beach fries are like boardwalk fries and just as good. We loved... More

I finally stopped in after passing by many times in a hurry to get back home to DC. I'm glad I stopped I ordered a coney and a sweet tea. The dog had just the right amount of snap when you bit into it and the chili on top was great. I'll be stopping by again.
