“Well worth the stop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Great dogs and sauce. Well worth the trip. From the road you wont understand the Long lines but once you stop you will be hooked. Best hot dogs I've had.

“YUMMY!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

First visit this weekend and I am so sorry in all the years I have been vacationing to the area I never stopped. Due to standing in line, by popular demand and coaching from repeat customers and Flo's daughter-in-law, I went with the "special". A ketchup and sweet relish only eater, after the first bite, I was eating my words. I now know why you order 3 at a time. Each one is made with love and a smile. I will be back even if just for a 2 hour ride one way for lunch!

“And I don't even like hotdogs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Driving by Flo's and seeing a line out the door, parking lot full, hubby wanted to try it out-he loves hotdogs. What's on the menu? Nothing but hotdogs, chips, beverages. What is one to do when one is hungry and doesn't care for hotdogs but can't pull the reins on their hubby? A sign said 95% hotdogs sold are made with the House Special. I see people in front of me order 10 hotdogs at a time. You place your order with how many, then they cook them, then they ask how you would like them. Its a great way to get the line moving. I decide to try out this special sauce House Special. Welp...that had to be the best hotdog I've ever tried. I will be back again ♥

“Who can explain love?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

You will line up with locals and visiters, even in January. You will order (at least two) hot dogs with everything. You get a steamed dog with mayo, celery salt and Flo's special sauce.
You either will fall in love or you won't.
(There really was a Flo who even in very advanced years worked the stand, we miss her still)

“How many? A classic example of less is more....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Virtually nothing has changed since they opened for business in 1959. Hot Dogs, soda, chips.... Flo's has been famous for their hot dogs from day one. Flo's Special.... Her secret relish, mayo and celery salt is the way to go. I have been stopping into Flo's since the late 60's. I remember Flo working the counter back then before Gail took it over and a little granddaughter running around.... now her granddaughter runs the place. There's almost always a line out the door, but if you like hot dogs, this is a place worth stopping. Don't go on a Wednesday, closed. Open 11-3 the other days.
