i eat here quite often for lunch, the price is right, the food is always consistent (as it should be) when ordering ask for the beef dog as the beef compliments the toppings much better than tyhe standard mix dog. oh yea and make sure you try the Gouda pimento cheese dog. very filling.

Delicious hot dog options. The island hot sauce is awesome. Kids meals come with a frisbee. They also have beer! Plenty of outdoor seating but limited indoor seating.

This was supposed to be a quick stop to ward off hunger, but it ended up being way more! The service was friendly! The food was awesome! We are going to be going back before we leave!! This is one of my favorites here in Carolina Beach! They have a small seating area behind them to eat with solar powered... More

On vacation in Carolina Beach and heard this was the place to get a hot dog. We could not agree more and you only need 1! The toppings are plentiful - no skimp on that! Stop by and enjoy the eats. Sweet tea is on the money.

Got to try the Gouda pimento cheese hotdog, fabulous and served my dog cold water and a dog biscuit, generous portions, two can split a fry and one hotdog is enough, cheap also, would go again definitely

All I can say is YUM! Don't think you will like it? They will give you a taste test (like an ice cream joint). That's what sold me! We ended up eating three Gouda pimento cheese dogs!!!!

Thanks so much for the review!! What started as a limited time hot dog that I wasn't even sure would sell has turned into our #2 selling hot dog!! Who knew?! Stop by again sometime and try it with chili, or island relish!! More
