I have been coming to this place for years. I would recommend this place to any local or visitor- best hot dog in Grand Rapids. Famous people visit here when in town. Nothing fancy Cash only, meter parking- old fashion on the inside. Dogs are simple cheddar dog nothing but chili and cheese, Yesterdog Chili, Onion, Mustard, Pickle, Ketchup. Ultradog... More

Yesterdog is a GR institution.The menu is brief, the service fast no frills and the dogs are tasty and cheap. I've taken a group of kids and treated them all and still had money left over. What kid doesn't love to be treated to hot dogs. Located for many years in the hippest area of Eastown, loved by locals and... More

For those of you who've had the pleasure of experiencing Hot Doug's in Chicago, this is not that place. Their dog quality is average, but selection is abbreviated. What they have going for them is location, great staff, and it's an awesome place to have a late night bite with friends and others that will become your friends. Yester, as... More

Is it late? Are you hungry? Do you feel like a hot dog fixed your way? Yesterdog is the answer. I'm not sure how long this place has been around but it is a classic.

This place is the coolest. The first time I went was 2 AM after a night of drinking and the hot dogs were so good I thought it must be because of the drinks. :) So - I went back for lunch and loved the hot dogs just the same. The place is nostalgic to GR and the servers who... More

We stopped here at the recommendation of a friend who'd recently traveled to Grand Rapids. This place is a historical trip back to the 1940's or so. Listen for staff directions on when and how to order - your food order may be placed before your drink order. While you wait, you can enjoy an eclectic collection of famous guests... More

When ever were in Grand Rapids always try to stop by for a couple. The place is old school with antiques through out. I like looking at all the pic of patrons wearing Yesterdog gear in many unique locations. The Hot dogs are great with many style choices and reasonable priced. If your looking for a Hot Dog in GR,...

They were average. They did have a couple of interesting choices on the menu. I would go back if I wanted something fast and easy.

Everyone kept telling me how great this place was. I wanted to love it. I didn't even like it. I guess it is the place to go after a night drinking, so people have told me. I don't care for their hot dog buns. They steam them. Hot dog is on par with a school lunch. I won't ever go... More

Full disclosure: I grew up eating these hot dogs, and, so they are terrific. If you did not grow up eating these hot dogs you may not feel the same. They are not Heid's of Liverpool in Syracuse, NY or Mustard's Last Stand or Steve's Dogs in Denver/Boulder. But, they are good solid dogs. The atmosphere is unbeatable, day or... More
