We ate for 11 dollars - the WHOLE family. And it was good. And we had table service -- and it was good - would recommend the corn dog and the barbecue - hubby would say the foot long with chili is the only reason he goes there - it is a meal, in itself. We loved the cupcakes by... More

We stopped in as we were driving through Newport News. It cost less than what we paid at a fast food joint earlier that day for lunch and it was quicker service. The people were also so friendly and accommodating. It's nothing fancy - just chili and hot dogs, but it was perfect for the kids.

My family used a groupon to visit Gus's HDK. We went on a thursday night and it was fairly busy. Its a small old A frame building with basic decor and seating. The employees were all very friendly and helpful. The hot dog can be ordered with any toppings at no extra charge. Very reasonable prices. I would likely return.

If you like hot dogs with mustard, chili and onions (all the way at the King), you won't find a better product anywhere. I no longer live in the area, but stop by every time I'm visiting or passing through Newport News. Started eating there in 1976 and been enjoying it ever since. Hats off to Stavroula and son for...

This is much nicer and cleaner than the other hot dog king. I think they are owned by separate families. The menu is very small, but good. Hot dogs, hamburgers, corn dogs, chicken sandwiches, fries, and shakes. I don't think they take anything but cash. Their food is good and the staff is nice. If you are a health but... More

I've been eating here for 35 years. It's as good today as it was 35 years ago. Best hotdogs anywhere.

Gus's Hot Dog King is fabulous. I ordered the foot long chili slaw dog and it was one of the best top 5 dogs I have ever had. Excellent wiener, chili, slaw and bun. The staff is very friendly and you can tell they enjoy what they are doing. They place stays busy, but the service was speedy. When I'm... More

I have been dining here for over 30 years. This place has never failed to deliver the best fast food. It's very busy at lunch time but worth the wait.
