If you visit Salisbury, you must grab a burger, hotdog and bottled Cheerwine from Haps. Only open for lunch and only room to stand outside, so don't plan on sitting down. The atmosphere is awesome and you can't beat the deal on a great burger.

The title says it all. The hot dogs and hamburgers are timeless treasures. These are the famous ones that make your day, month and year. Its not fast food. Its great food made quickly, right in front of you. Look, there's a reason there is a line out the door and up the sidewalk every day at lunch. And Greg... More

Stand-up hot dog joint. Had 2 dogs all the way, Diet Rite. Should have gone chili-cheese dog, but I was a rookie and choked under pressure. Great hot dogs, extra-casual atmosphere. No sitting down allowed. Stand up at the bar or grab a table outside the door on the sidewalk. Don't miss this if you're downtown Salisbury, even if you... More

It ISN'T the best meal I have EVER had in a restaurant--but it IS the BEST I have ever had in a similar restaurant. And it is fun because you never know who you will see while in line--or while eating. It is literally Standing Room only--no tables but a nice park bench or two outside! You can eat standing...

The hotdogs here are so good and inexpensive. The workers are so friendly. Last time I went, my friend and I came in right before close, and they gave us free hotdogs!

If you are looking for great hot dogs and hamburgers in a "hole in the wall" type of place, this is it! Been going to Haps for years and it is always great!

They have the best chili cheese burgers! The chili is perfect and loaded with grilled onions. Only one way to really order...all the way with chili and a dab of mustard. I add a little ketchup. Bliss! This is a stand up and eat kind of place. Perfect....I stop in every time I'm near Salisbury, NC.

Just a little bitty place, serves simply hot dogs, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, bottles drinks, and bagged chips. That it! Cooked on a flat top restaurant grill, and maybe 1 or 2 tables inside, and 2 stand up tables outside on the street. What was really cool was that the area around it is so picturesque. and, if you want to go... More
