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

After trying the Monroe Original Hot dog had to try Vince's. Have been notices great special prices on their facebook page. Went on one the days with the .50 dogs and beers. Fed a family of three with these for $8.50. The service was really quick with a 14 dog order and 3 beers. My son really loved the dogs... More

I have never had chili dogs better anywhere! My sister moved out of town and I have to bring them to her ever time we visit! Grew up going here and hope it never closes in my lifetime!! Great family that owns it!
