There was a time I had no problems in the neighborhood. Time has taken its toll but not on the food. Breakfast and lunch were good staff established and know what is expected, good food. Served hot off the grill. Nothing fancy here, who needs fancy just good.

Abe's hotdogs arguably are the best hotdogs in the Northeast. Their sauce is outstanding. The prices are very reasonable. Worth the trip if you are from out of town and if you're local you can not get enough of them.

Abe's Hot Dogs on South Main St. in Wilkes-Barre has the best hot dogs ever. They have a special chili sauce bar none. I grew up eating these hot dogs as a kid. I have moved away from the area now but every time I am back in town Abe's is a definite stop. The place is nothing fancy but... More

We have often visited Abe's when we drive up north to Wilkes-Barre. A very dear friend grew up there and had enchanted us with his tales of ten cent hot dogs when he was young. The hot dogs are now $1.25, but it is sixty years later! We had four dogs and two drinks, and then two pieces of pie.... More

Abe's hotdogs (the South Main Street location) are the best hotdogs you'll ever eat! They're a delicious tradition that's been in the area for many years. If you're in Wilkes-Barre, you have to stop and try one (or two or three). They're simple, but they're the best!

Don't come here expecting fine dining, don't come here expecting anyone to kiss your behind, don't come here expecting to see a large menu with the latest froufrou trendy dish of the month. The counter service is quick, efficient and curt, but always with a friendly word no matter how busy they are. I always order my dogs with "everything"... More

If You go to Wilkes Barre, and not have an Abe's Hot Dog then you have missed out. There is nothing more to say. My father took me there as a kid. Everyone in Wilkes Barre knows Abe's.
