Hot Dogs!

Lots of hot dogs and condiments to choose from. The French fry order for one person is huge, easily feeds 2 or 3 people. The size of the dogs are huge.

Everything about the place is great, except the wait and availability to find a seat. Staff is great!!! Food is great!! And, even though there is a very long wait to order and get food, it's still a regular place for us, because the kids love it, and so do the parents. We go regularly during the open months... seasonal... More

Scooter himself runs the front desk, so you know everything is taken care of. He has a big crew of young people working for him so things are relatively quick, and the service is friendly. The food is great and the prices are not bad. It's a great little family place. It gets addicting because it's only open during the... More

What a great place. If you love hot dogs and fries this is your place. we sat at a picnic table outside. Munched fries. Ate hot dogs and all of us commented on how hot and well prepared the food was and the fries are great. So many choices to dress your dog. Did I mention the fries are great.... More

Wonderful place to stop before of after (or both) going to the beach. Regular size hot dogs, foot long hot dogs, no topping to a large variety of toppings plus salads, burgers and other sandwiches. And fries. Lots and lots and lots of fresh cut, skinny, fries! Word of advice - order the smallest size. Unless you're feeding a family... More

Scooter's is always packed, but well worth the wait. The food is delicious, the portions big and the prices are good. An insider tip: get the small fries unless you are trying to feed an army!

Seasonal location on the way to the beach, small place with picnic tables and great hot dogs and fries. The best value is the fresh cut fries, the portions size for the fries is huge, so it's best if you share with your kids. Perfect stop before or after the beach.

Stop here and get something to eat on your way to Headlands Beach Park. The dogs are sure to please and the fries are delish. A small serving is plenty to share. The ice cream and shakes are very good. Expect to wait a bit in line as it is a popular local spot.

This place is always packed and for good reasons; great dogs and good value. You can get your dog anyway you want it, & in 3 sizes to fit any appetite. Order the SMALL fries (anything but) unless you crave mountains of French fries..
