Yummy Hot Dogs

Sometimes you just have to have a hot dog and this is one of my favorite spots...it is also Alton Brown's favorite place in the Charleston area!

Made a off the cuff visit to family who just moved to the area. One night we stopped by for a dog and was pleasantly surprised by the helpful server that greeted us. He asked if we had questions and when we did he explained it well. I had the Cosmic dog and the Astro dog, both great, the onion... More

Looking for fun and quirky? This place has lots of character and the food is always fresh and tasty. I like the Blue Galactic Dog best. Lots of vegetarian options too.

Made many trips to the area but this was the first time we ate at Jack's. We thoroughly enjoyed our dogs esp. with the blue cheese slaw. The dogs and roles are so big and tender. We got an order of fries and they were great - thin and nicely browned in peanut oil. We threw in root beer on... More

Went to Jack's on Saturday for lunch, fun place. My wife and I both had a cosmic dog, mine regular and her's veggie. We shared an order of fries and I had a draft root beer. Everything was great and the service was super.

I lived in Austin, TX for several years. One of the really cool things about living there is that there are an abundance of restaurants with a unique "character" that reflects the unique nature of the area. It's a more elusive quality than you'd think. Jack's Cosmic Dog would be as at home in Austin as it is in Mt.... More

A real throwback nostalgic dog joint and then some. I felt like I landed in an old general store from the '50's. The hot dogs themselves are basic but what goes on top of it is great with really creative toppings. I tried the Atomic Dog ($3.15) with Jack's Spicy Onion Relish (warm and chunky) and Spicy Mustard. It's not... More

Stopped in for lunch while in mt. pleasant and was happy I did. It has a great dog shop feel with retro furniture and advertising. Hot dogs are the headliner for the overhead menu board. Lots of options. The homemade mustard and chili are stalwarts on several special dogs. I chose a mustard, chili and onion dog with fries and... More
