Located in Natick, Massachusetts, Casey's Diner has been in operation for over 120 years. Casey's Diner was first established in 1890 with a 4-stool, horse drawn wagon that Fred Casey purchased from the Brooks family. The current diner was built in 1922 by the Worcester Lunch Car Company and has been located in downtown Natick since 1927. It has passed from father to son for four generations. Famous for its steamed hotdogs, Casey's is a local landmark in Natick, serving generations of families for more than a century.

steamed hotdogs

a very old Natick landmark, amazing old fashion diner, must see. takes a little ingenuity to find it, not really too difficult. This is where I go for my "hot dog fix."

After the place we were supposed to go was closed a quick search located this place and at that time, all we knew is that it was a diner and it was relatively close. We set off with no expectations other than to get fed. If I am honest, when we turned up we were a little surprised. It's a... More

In a rush but need a quick, delicious bite? Stop by Casey's Diner to grab one of the best hot dogs, burgers or sandwiches made to order. Grab a stool at the counter or take it to go. You won't regret it!

Most people take out since not much room inside but the hot dogs are the best. Like a fenway park frank. Try there grilled cheese or hamburgers.

......And if you are o.k. With a soft, non - grilled bun, then Casey's is for you! You need to eat at least two at a sitting/ standing along with your bag of chips to feel like you have had enough, but, that said, they're pretty good. The best part of Casey's is the old trolley that makes it the... More

Hot Dogs at Casey's are very good. But steamed buns are pretty soggy, and why don't they have any sauerkraut?? Seems like that should be a staple topping to have for hot dogs, yet missing here.

Great dogs with snap, If you like your hot dog with firm skin this is the ultimate option. They also do w great job on hamburgers and grilled cheese. Not a lot of space to sit and eat. It's the quintessential old time dinner. But it gets crowded and you may want to plan on taking your food to go.
