Kitchy decor, fabulous dogs!

We were traveling in the Charleston, SC area and happened to pass Jack's Cosmic Dogs... I recognized it from the Food Network and Alton Brown's visit. We had to stop in, and I had Alton's favorite, the Cosmic Dog with sweet potato mustard and blue cheese slaw. It was just as fantastic as he had... read more

Stopped in for a late lunch and wasn't disappointed. The slaw and the dogs were outstanding. I would highly recommend giving this place a try.

Stopped in for a quick bite. Dogs were great! Fries were very tasty. Cheap, quick, and very nostalgic.

This is a must. Outside of Buffalo, NY, this place has the best hot dog experience! Tasty and unique, try the galactic dog, their signature item. Frosty root beer on tap, and some fries done in peanut oil, fantastic. It is on the main drag just north of Mt. Pleasant on highway 17. Great place for lunch, eclectic atmosphere you... More

This little hole in the wall place on the side of the road does not look like a place you want to stop at. However, after reading about it on Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives, we realized it was worth it. The hot dogs were great and inexpensive. Even the kids meals are full of great goodies. So glad we...

We take everyone who visits to this fun place. Love the slaw. Buns are fresh. Food is hot. Fries perfect. One of our guests did not get chili on his hot dog and it was quickly replaced with a whole new order. Great place with good food.

Decorated well and a great stop with kids. Definitely not gourmet but great for what it is and where else can you get TANG these days.

Just on a whim I decided to finally try Jack's Cosmic Dogs. I should have kept driving. The buns are unpleasant and the hot dogs are tough. Thank goodness Schoogie's is still going strong.
