Delish! A hidden treasure to eat on the river behind the restaurant at one of their picnic tables - sooooooooooo fun!

You must order the Greek salad - warm fresh pita!!! The tuna sandwich or salad is excellent! Their famous root beer is so good!!

I've ordered many things off the menu, but I specifically go for the chili dogs "all the way" and onion rings and fries. Homemade root beer is fantastic! I like the stand on the other side of the river too, but they don't do fries! Mondays are 75 cent hot dogs!

3 generations of our family love Vince's. Can park for curb service, pick up food and go to the nearby parks or bring it home. Cn also call an order in for pick up quicker. Love the root beer- just good old-fashioned root beer!- and of course, the chili dogs. Vince's On The Go is their traveling kitchen truck- booked... More

By far and wide Vince's has my vote for the best dogs, I know, I know, it is a hot debate in the Floral City as to who has the best, but everyone has to decide for themselves and I VOT FOR VINCE"S. The food is always hot and service is fast. Dogs are cheap, tasty, and not so sickly... More

We always park down the road at munson park and walk to the hotdog stand for lunch and a rootbeer float. Makes for a perfect family outing :)

Overall Vince's wins the Monroe Hotdog challenge hands down. The dogs were tastier, the chili was not as sickly sweet as Monroe Original and the prices were better. I am not a fan of sweet chili and neither place rocks a great chili dog, but Vince's is better.

Best chili dogs anywhere in Monroe. Fast friendly service. outdoor seating, and a nice view of the River Raisin. Conveniently located right off of Telegraph Road.

This is a hot button issue for the residents of Monroe. You're either a fan of Monroe's Original or Vince's. And from what I've discovered, who you choose to go to is based soley on who you grew up with and where your parents went. My family has been coming to Vince's for years. And when I say years, I...

Vince's hot dog stand is well known in Monroe. They provide delicious food at very cheap prices. Our bill was $6.50 for onion rings, 5 chili dogs and 2 root beers. You can't beet it! The service is fast and friendly. You can eat in your car or at a picnic table overlooking the River Raisin. In my opinion they're... More
