Fairly priced and delicious!

The hot dogs are thick and can be loaded with many different options, and the mashed potato bowls are amazing! Wish I lived closer so I could go more often!

I'm truly amazed at the negative reviews of this place. Completely without merit. There are long lines for a reason - the hotdogs are tasty. Are they as good as say a Nittany Frank cooked perfectly on your own grill? Of course not. But, when is the last time you thought of putting cole slaw and russian dressing on your... More

Great place for a quick, good meal. Hot dogs are on point and so is humor! Right near beach, so a quick exit for a meal is not out of question!

Hot dog Tommy's is the best hotdogs I have ever tasted. I just happened to park in front of the store on my way going to Cape May Beach. I did not realize it was so awesome. The menu is great he has lots of different options to order hotdogs. Example: Slaw Dog, YO (yellow mustard and onion), Texas Tommy... More

Best hot dogs (we love the Jersey Slaw Dog) and you can't beat the location close to the beach. Frozen Coke is great too! My husband got lunch for us two days in a row, and our daughter ate every bite of her hot dog. Love this place!

A trip to the beach at Cape May is not complete without going to Hot Dog Tommy's for any kind of dog you can imagine, and a potato tornado. Yum! Worth the long line.

This is the place to go for the best dogs on the Cape May beach. Be prepared to stand in line, it is that popular. You can eat it plain or add as many toppings as you like and they have plenty of choices. You can't go to Cape May without trying Tommy's

Hot dogs at a whole new level of creativity. You can get a classic New Yorker , Mustard and Karat or have a Ruben dog with Swiss and Thousand island dressing, and the list goes on. Hot Dog Tommy is a real person and is happy to serve you every day. The line gets long so get there early, good... More
