“DON'T MISS THIS PLACE!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We spent the month of March in Key West, and on the first night that we were there we like all other tourists went down to Mallory Square to see the sun set. Being a Jersey guy, I am a lover of hot pretzels. When we came upon "Dave" and the Key West Pretzel Company, we had to "sample the wares"!!! Dave (the owner) is a "character" , and really a nice guy. He "gave us the tour" of the mustards and sauces that he makes along with selling us the first of many pretzels that we bought both at Mallory Square and at his shop over at the Schooner Wharf. If you like hot pretzels, and want to meet a true Key West "personality" go see Dave at the Key West Pretzel company, and if you ask for the "get twisted" price, you will get a discount. Enjoy!!!

“Best Pretzel Ever....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

We were in Key West off the Carnival Freedom. The Key West Pretzel Company was our first stop of the day because we were hungry. We stopped here with our electric car. They were just opening for the day so we had to wait a bit for our pretzel but it was well worth the wait.
We ordered a regular pretzel, a cinnamon pretzel with vanilla & caramel drizzle, and a strawberry lemonade. My cinnamon pretzel was soooooo good. It was delicious but be sure that you have some wet naps or a bottle of water because my hands were super sticky after eating the pretzel. It was worth it though. The strawberry lemonade was the perfect touch to compliment my pretzel.
On our next trip to Key West we will definitely be stopping at the Key West Pretzel Company again

“Best Pretzel and Hot Dog in Key West!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

My son and I have made it a tradition to eat a hot dog and Pretzel every day we are here in Key West. The taste is incredible and they are always very friendly. They are at Mallory Square every night for the sunset festival. Try them and you will be as amazed as we are.

“Best Hot Dogs in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

We discovered the cart at Mallory Pier nine years ago. Every year since then we have been greeted as friends. The hot dogs are fantastic....always our first stop when we get to Key West. The specialty mustard and topping are delicious. We introduce new friends to the Key West Pretzel Company every year. If you miss the cart at Mallory Square you get the same great hot dogs and pretzels with all the toppings on Lazy Lane all day long.

“Friendly service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

We strolled past the Key West Pretzel Company but it was closed. I saw the store's vending wagon a little later at Mallory Square. The owner said he was closing and he gave me his last pretzel! How totally cool is that? The pretzel was hot and tasted great!
