Childhood memories rekindled

I had tried two other places downtown before we were so cold we had to get out of the wind and into my childhood hotdog shop! Actually I'd never been in Curtis or heard of the place but wow what a smell! You never forget that diced to pulverized onion smell if you've grown up with it. My shop was... read more

Heard about this place through trip advisor so we went. Hot Dogs are okay but what really makes it worth visiting is the company. The owner makes you feel like FAMILY.

OK, before you read the rest of this review, you must understand that this is nothing more than an indoor hot dog stand. The décor is old and tired. It is not fancy, and could be off putting to some. You must realize that this establishment is much as it 100 years ago. The booths have been moved from it's... More

We love places like this. Hole in the wall, local and fun make this joint special. You get two wieners with an order, plain, with sauce, with sauce and mustard or the whole shebang with sauce, mustard and onions. They are beef wieners and are small so two plus a shared order of fries hit the spot. We will be... More

This place is small and definitely not professionally decorated. However, it has a certain charm and the service was excellent and the man behind the counter went out of his way to engage me in conversation. The wieners are small, so you may want to get 2 or more. The special sauce and onions turn a drab weiner into a... More

We were really disappointed with how small the wieners were. They were reasonably tasty, though. The french fries were straight from the freezer bag to the oven--yuk! The service was definitely fast. The cleanliness had much room to improve. When I saw how they placed the prepared hotdogs on the are counter, I couldn't believe it.

I grew up in Cumberland. I am back for my 50th High School reunion. This is where I chose to eat first. Why? Because it hasn't changed since I was last here. For all I know, they haven't changed the lard they cook the French fries in. So why the high rating? Because you get exactly what you expect at... More

I grew up in Cumberland and ate Coney Island hotdogs until I moved to Chicago. The first place I visit before seeing anyone is Curtis for their hotdogs. We have a class reunion every five years and that is my first stop when I go home. They are the best and I have tried hotdogs all over the country to... More
