If you have been to Salisbury and haven't been to hap's what in the world are you doing here? Hap's is a small restaurant catering in burgers and hot dogs. But, I promise you this isn't any ol burgers and hot dogs. You will find Hap's easily because there is always a line. A fast moving line!

Hap's is a tradition. Why - great hot dogs and burgers, street dining and Cheerwine. Well worth a lunch pit stop in Salisbury.

Small on space (no room for fries), Huge on flavor! A favorite Hot Dog Destination for our family! Just off the main square going East. And of course they have Cheerwine!

Old fashion plain old burger.... all the way with chili cheese and onion.....really enjoyed it. Very simple nothing fancy, exactly what i wanted it to be....stand up inside to eat or out on the street. Felt like i went back in time 50 years. Friendly and very inexpensive. Can't wait to go back and try the chili dog.

This place is a throw back in time and well worth the wait in the short line. Yes, there is a short line that goes by fast. The grill has an abundance of items on the menu; hamburger or hotdog, with cheese or without, with chili or without. There are choices for drinks too, Cheerwine, RC, and Root Beer. Locals... More

Greeted by a smiling face and a laughing atmosphere, one of the best food experiences in Salisbury if you are looking for a quick lunch while being surrounded by great people. The man at the grill is a hotdog/hamburger master! Great food. Highly recommended!

Never had a chance to eat here. We were looking for a sit down restaurant. Ended up across the street at Sweet Cafe.
