Today is a good day to be at Yesterdog....actually anyday is a good day to be at Yesterdog. A treasure to be found in EastTown. The Cheddar dog in my favorite, toasted buns, fresh to order, and just make sure to get lots of napkins because the goodies overflow!!!

Everyone raves about this place.......I don't care for it. Hog dogs are not hot, the place is dirty. Hand prints on the doors. Trash bins looked like they haven't been washed in years. When I was there (quite some time ago) the people making the food were handling cash. They had gloves on but then would handle the cash with... More

Yesterdog doesn't look like the fanciest place in town but the staff will definitely make you feel welcome and the hotdogs will make sure you return! Mouth watering, messy and loaded with great toppings. Make sure you have cash because that is all they take!

Is it something in the water, the air, the hot dog pots, the historical location, the building's particular gravitational pull/magnetic field, the feng shui of the booths and artifact-lined walls, the karma of the many customers over the decades? Who cares. These are the best hotdogs in town, and they're messy enough to put everyone on a level eating field,... More

Some like 'em sloppy, others neat and tidy. Yesterdog has them all. Seemingly quality dogs and an overwhelming number of choices of combinations for toppings.

I have eaten hotdogs all over the U.S. and the "Ultra Dog" is still the number one hotdog ever. The special chili, shredded cheese and pickles, steamed buns, are second to none. If you are in Grand Rapids it is worth the trip!!

Great hotdogs...usually eat a few when I go. The interiors are worth a sit down and conversation with friends.

I have been going to Yesterdog for years; it has always been a hot spot for me, my friends and almost everyone I know. These dogs are defintely messy but are the best hot dogs i've had! Cheap prices, great food, only down side is they only take cash. Small building with a decent amount of seating. If you are... More
