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.

Want a great chilli dog. Look no further than Abes. A place to pick up one of the great American hot dogs. You won't find a more tasty hot dog this side of Coney Island! I belive Abe's hot dogs are better. Find out for youself!

They have this special recipe for chili dogs, they call it Texas meat sauce, Its a spicey, yet sweet sauce they put on top of a top quality grilled hotdog, then add mustard and chopped onions if you like. I usually order at least 3 of them. They also have very good home-made perogies. This place is not fancy or... More

This is the most simplistic place there is, however, the hot dogs and everything else they serve are amazing. Good for lunch, dinner, or hangover food. Prices are cheap, and well worth every penny
