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!

You'd think that over the years things might change but Vince's, even under different than original management, still provides a good product at a good price. Monday is .75 cent day with dogs just .75 apiece. Carhops take your order and deliver it freshly prepared to your car. Even with a tip it's still great food at a great price.

A local landmark on the river with great chilidogs, onion rings, & root beer. Daily specials with Monday being 75 cent chili dog day. A nice view of the river when you dine there.

Decided to take my teenager today and decide which Monroe heavyweight we liked better. The trip started at Vince's, each of us ordering two dogs and root beer. I had mine "all the way" and my son ordered "all the way" plus cheese. The dogs came out fast and hot! As you might have read elsewhere, Monroe chili dogs are... More
