Seriously . . . In Poughkeepsie?!

The idea of a bistro restaurant that makes, from scratch, gluten free Mac-n-cheese and a wide assortment of soups and sandwiches in Poughkeepsie, New York is a bit . . . well, odd - no offense meant to Poughkeepsie. The food is really great. I can't speak highly enough for the variety and the... read more

I had quinoa salad (which was okay but not at all what I had read in Urban Spoon review -- change of recipe??) and hushpuppies (perfectly round, dry, and tasteless); husband had chili cheese hot dog, which he said was "pretty good". Service at counter was nice. Easy to park (illegally in front); table and uncomfortable chairs outdoors (nice on... More

Love soul dog's hot dogs and their toppings are amazing. I also loved their flavored french fries. I love the Cajun fries the best.

Besides their famous hot dogs, they have yummy fish and chips, fish tacos and vegan specials. Color on the paper table cloths and have a beer while you wait for the comfort food to arrive. Don't forget the excellent fries!

Hot dogs, great toppings, quality dogs, a little pricey for what they are you will drop a tenner easy for lunch and be "just enough". Definitely a try though
