Best steamed hot dogs in town! Large variety of toppings and many sandwiches to choose from. I wish they would move to Tallahassee, Fl

If more people reviewed Gary's, they'd be #1 on the top food places in New Bedford. Anybody who is from New Bedford knows of Gary's and has eaten there more times than they can count. Simple Fast Cheap Delicious Stop by to get some food and you will not regret it!

Picnic benches in the back and a take out menu only. This is a small place, but has hot dogs, crab salad sandwiches, pork butt sandwiches and more. The prices are great and food good. There is usually a line, but service is very fast. We enjoyed this stop for a quick bite on a beautiful spring day.

I have no idea why they are so much better than anywhere else,,, but they are. Hands down the best hot dogs you'll ever eat. No wonder it's always busy here, they know what they are doing

A teeny tiny gem of a hit dog shack in New Bedford, Gary's Best has delicious, fresh, CHEAP food that I will go out of my way for.
