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... More

If you are looking for great, basic food in a down home setting....this is it. Great hotdogs and hamburgers. Have some Cheerwine with it...great combination.

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

Hap's is always hot, fresh off the grill burgers and dogs. The smell from the street and the line out the door are good clues to a classic formula for success. Hap's is a great community supporter and a part of downtown celebrations, both formal and informal. One of a kind chili on the burgers and hot dogs are a... More

This guy Hap has fooled the masses in Salisbury. The hotdogs are not that good, the prices are excessive, the service is bad, the joint is cramped and no where to eat. If you are looking for an experience, Hap will give you one.
