I have to admit that I'm a hot dog lover. I always have a pack or two in the freezer. I'm sure its not healthy, but "what the heck". So, I had an opportunity to stop by The Red Hot this week and try them out. Their menu is almost exclusively hot dogs of all types, to include sausages. It's... More

A fine venue with an enormous beer selection (so no under 21's) and some interesting hit dogs- all beef. Also have a vegan dog which was very good.

This is a great stop for hot dogs and beer. My husband and I go there about once a week for a quick, inexpensive meal. They have a great beer selection that always changes so most likely every time you go there will be something new to try. The hot dogs are really good and maybe something you've never tried... More

We were thinking of something light, quick, affordable and nearby...found this one and it was a treat. Beer was very good and many hot dog preps on the menu to choose from. Our server was very friendly and helped us with choosing our "dogs". Fun!

I've been going to this place before it was featured on Food Network and it's worth being featured! Not only do they serve the best hot dogs but also a vast variety of alcoholic beverages. It can get crowded in there but if you can get a seat, it's a great pub type atmosphere. I highly reccomend "The Tacoma", the... More

I love going to this place! I love trying new beers and they always have something new to offer. I enjoy the atmosphere and the hot dogs are really good. The place is almost always packed, so be prepared to be flexible on where you sit. Part of the reason why I love going there is talking to other people... More

Good beer but the hot dog selection wasn't that great. The hot dogs were ok nothing special. Small place not a lot of room. It was ok but nothing special in my opinion.

Friends took me here for lunch and I wish I could have stayed all afternoon! Lots of unique micro brews to complement a wide selection of 'red hots'. Each hot dog is about for bucks and are served quickly and hot. Nice vibe at lunch and friends say it's is packed people at night. If you have an appetite plan... More

I stopped in here for lunch and here is what I found. Very creative, high quality hot dogs on scrumptious poppy seed buns. A great beer selection. And a very knowledgeable staff. I had some questions about the craft beers on tap and the server Jeff had great explanations, he really knew his stuff. I ordered a hot dog and... More

This is by far the best place to have a couple Hot dogs and beer. They have many to select from and something new is always on tap. They have a variety of ciders to drink also. The hot dogs are always fresh and made as ordered right in front of you. Very friendly staff. It's a little whole in... More
