Stopped in quickly on a trip from Cincinnati to Pittsburgh and was really quick and easy detour, food was out right away. I was concerned it would be slow from reading some of the other reviews, but I was in and out in under 5mins, this was about 3pm on a Friday. Got a chili dog and cowgirl Carmen and... More

Took my family here. Was excited to try it because of all the hype. Was not impressed at all. Waited on a saturday for almost an hour and a half for a table. When we did get our food i was dissappointed. Also when the bill came it was expensive for what we got. Will not go back.

This place is always crowded. It's not the biggest place to begin with, so 20 people or so makes it packed. People seem to go all gaga over this place. (Hipster hangout). I simply don't get the fuss. After all, they are hot dogs. They do have a ton of options to dress them up. I got the Puff the... More

I went to the Mid-Ohio Comic Con this weekend and swung by this place Sunday night. I was very thankful for the Vegetarian options and really loved the feel of this restaurant.

We stopped in about 6 pm on a Saturday night. It's a small place, maybe seats 28-32 people, so it fills up fast. We didn't have time to wait for a table so we ordered to go, got it in about 15 minutes and took it back to our downtown hotel. They have every combination of dog imaginable, plus some... More

Wow what a cool place, very quiet during the day but a jumping joint at night. Who knew what you could do with a HOT DOG! This is a must try restaurant just for what it is, all about the dogs. Anything and everything you could think of to put on a hot dog. Crazy names for all of the... More

The food is always good, fresh and tasty. My favorite dogs are the Sriracha Slaw and Cowgirl Carmen, but I've never had a bad one. If you go, especially during peak times, don't expect to be in and out in a few minutes, but it's time well spent.

Great selection of hot dogs and other bar type appetizers. Went were their tots instead of fries and they were very good. Great selection of craft beer as well.

A busy place especially if a game is playing. It seemed that there was plenty of staff but to wait 30 minutes for a specialty dog in a small restaurant, I expected quicker service especially since it was to go. If you want novelty, its worth it.

Ok. This place is great. After a juggling show on a recent Friday night a group of us stopped in at about 10PM....and we had to wait for a table. The space is tiny, packed and hoppin'. The hot dogs (a huge variety) were outstanding and at $3 or so apiece you can try several. I had fries with that... More
