Stand in line there, even in the heat - you won't regret it! Husband loved the dock dog and I gobbled the carrot dog. A must during a day or stay in Cape May!

The best dog's in town. If you don't stop to try one, or two, or three, you are missing out. Also the potato tornado is a surfers delight. Visit the beach, sit on a bench, watch the people, and bit a dog!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We came here last weekend for lunch and the line was short and fast. This place is a kick. I had the Reuben dog which had Swiss cheese, pickle, sauerkraut, and Russian dressing on a large Angus beef dog. Delicious. My wife had the Jersey Slaw dog with mustard and cranberry coleslaw. Also, delicious. We also shared the Mac and... More

Usually there is a very long line outside of Hot Dog Tommy's and we don't wait, but we got lucky. There was only about 5 people in front of us and when we got to the front of the line, we were treated very nicely and all of the staff was friendly and cheerful. They have a large variety of... More

The hot dogs happen to be fantastic, but the experience is even better. One of Cape May's foodie gems. For those who want more out of life than just a Big Dog, try their tuna or mashed potatoes. And make new friends standing in line. Find out what's happening in Cape May!!!
