I used to eat there quite a bit but I won't be going back. On my last visit I noticed the prices went up and the food quality had changed. They went to cheaper quality of food.

It's not "glitzy" , it's where the locals go...and It's GOOD... I had a chilly dog all the way with fries and the wife had a tuna salad that had local tomatoes on it to die for...and it's on the side of the road.... the staff really friendly. Will go back if ever in the area!!!

Wait staff is very attentive and pleasant. Uncomplicated. The sausage patties and hotcakes for breakfast were just like home.

There must be new owners because this is not the place we have frequented for years when we were in town. Our last visit was a disaster. The foot longs were so soggy by the time I got them home that they completely fell apart. Did not taste the same either. What has happened?

We have eaten at the Dawg House for fifteen years but had our last meal there today. I am not sure what is going on but there are different people working there every time we go and it is worse every time we go. Today was the final straw. We waited over 30 minutes for two hotdogs. No explanation, no... More

Excellent vegetable soup and hot dogs. But somehow the Dawg House still isn't the same without Bill, the founder. Many people used to fly in for lunch at Bill's when it was by the airport, but they can't in the new location. Still and all, the food is consistently good and when you need a hot dog fix, the Dawg... More
