Stopped by after taking our granddaughter to the boardwalk and picked up some all beef hot dogs to go. Got the hotdogs with everything and they were great,fries were good also and the onion rings were crazy good! Great food at a good price!

Got to tell you...being at the beach is grand...but top it off with a good hot dog ...makes it an exceptional experience. I highly recommend a short walk from the beach to get this dog!!!

Right next to the Marriott and the boardwalk. Outdoor seating close to the beach. Walk off the sand and grab some lunch!

Ok -- I'm a hot dog lover -- just am and it goes way back. I always try various dog places where ever I travel (that and BBQ). Island hots was a surprise great dog place. It has some outdoor seating -- but it's the Island Relish that makes the dog (in my opinion!). Just had a single hot dog... More

We love to satisfy a hot dog connoisseur such as you! The island relish, like many toppings, are made fresh daily and that makes a big difference in the quality. Thanks for coming by during your trip! More

Ventured down from Canada during hurricane Arthur. 2 adults and 3 kids all agree this place is the real deal. They are willing to change your dog if you ordered a pork one by mistake etc. Our favorite was the Chicago. Great dogs and customer service!

Thanks for coming in during your vacation. At least after the big storm on Thursday the weather was great for the weekend to give you some beach time! Glad you enjoyed your Chicago dog - they are very popular! More

Great Dogs, we love the all beef the best. We've been coming here since they first opening 3 years ago I believe. Owners are there and really care about their customers. The place is kept very clean. We prefer to sit outside and people watch while enjoying our dogs.

We were excited to try this place with the kids after the reviews. Unfortunately neither of my kids liked their hot dogs at all and didn't eat them. They are used to eating all beef hot dogs and I just ordered them regular hot dogs without thinking, so they said they tasted "raw". The onion rings and fries are good.... More

You may not realize that all hot dogs are precooked so none can be “Raw” and the original are with pork which makes them lighter in color than the beef We are always on site and would have been happy to provide new hot dogs had you given us the opportunity while you were there. We take customer service and... More

It was so nice finding a restaurant you can bring your dog to. We sat down outside and our pet was immediately served a bowl of water and a dog biscuit. We ordered the pulled-pork nachos, the German, and the All the Way. While the hot dogs did not have the crunch that you get when you bite into a... More

Thanks for the visit and appreciate the Paws Up rating! The pulled pork nachos are definitely a local favorite as well and the All the Way is the number one hot dog – so great choices! More
