Must Stop & Eat

You cannot come or pass by Salisbury, NC without this stop on N.Main Street. The meat in the burgers will melt in your mouth and the way they are done on a hot grill gives the burgers and dogs just the right amount of sear. Top off the dogs & burgers by going all the way with the chili and... read more

Passing through NC with some locals. They took us here. They were delicious. Burgers with everything and Cheer wine soda. Heck yes. You gotta go here. Get a burger with everything and chips and cheer wine. Maybe a hot dog too. SO yummy.

So let me just start by saying that we actually plan our travel from North to South around being able to stop at Hap's. Cheeseburger, Hotdog "all the way", and a bottle of Cheerwine please. Enuff said!

A unique place to eat. You order at the counter, eat at the standup bar on the side, or eat outside, or take it with you. The food is quick, very good and reasonable. This is a small "hole in the wall", but very much worth a visit If you hot dogs, hamburgers, chips and sodas.

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...

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!
