“Drive-through or eat-in picnic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

The hot dogs are notoriously great here. People that have moved from the area like to return for a ritual hot dog on visits. We always insist on their mustard, too - and buy it for home use (at Wegman's). Salads are very good (potato, macaroni, beans, etc.) and they have enough other items on the menu to satisfy many different appetites. I've never had a bad meal here, service is fast and ambiance is simple and clean. The food tastes fresh and "real", not processed.

“It's about the dog and they are great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013 via mobile

Dosn't have the vibe of Heide's but it's all about the coneys and dogs, and they are as good as it gets. Old school flavor of a Syracuse standard, if you have never been here you should go. You don't need a burger or any of the broadened menu of this era, a well dog dog and coney will enlighten you as to why people have lined up for decades at Heide's of Liverpool.

“Hofmann's- Gone to the DOGS”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

We have been visiting Hofmann's for years and it used to have the best hot dogs in Syracuse- but lately their dogs have "gone to the dogs". We noticed a drop in quality, best observed by the veal flavor. The rolls that are used are pretty sad, too, as they fall apart while trying to hold the dog. The grilled cheese sandwiches seem to have a pretty small slice of cheese, but the flavor seemed OK. Tough times for everybody- but it shouldn't be passed to the customer with lower quality food.
