Hot Dog Heaven!

Understand the long lines because the hot dogs are so good. Lots of combinations to choose from, even for vegetarians. I am very curious to try one of their potatoes. Maybe next year. But I'll still have to get a hot dog too.

After many years of wanting to get to Tommy's, finally made it late last summer with my son. It was a BLAST! Hot dogs were great and offered in many different ways...and you can't beat Tommy's 'schtick' comedy. Hope to make it again this summer!

So many varieties and toppings. Always a crowd of interesting people. Outdoor seating. Pets welcome. Better than a hot-dog stand.

HDT is a really nice place to get a nice variety of hot dog treats. But, that's it! Their menu is very limited, there is no place to sit, so you have to take them somewhere and you usually have to wait in a very long line. Tommy, his wife a crew are very nice and it's a pleasant experience...once... More

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The hot dogs are so good here that Tommy has a line all the time. Check out his to go menu and check out his time of operation! It is very funny. He is an interesting man and makes the best hot dogs I have ever ordered!

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
