“Hot Dog Heaven!”

Great dogs--love mustard, onion, chili and cole slaw!
Staff friendly. Clean inside. It's been around a long time (so have I) and the food has not changed--Great!

“Decent dog”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

My family used a groupon to visit Gus's HDK. We went on a thursday night and it was fairly busy. Its a small old A frame building with basic decor and seating. The employees were all very friendly and helpful. The hot dog can be ordered with any toppings at no extra charge. Very reasonable prices. I would likely return.

“consistently delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

If you like hot dogs with mustard, chili and onions (all the way at the King), you won't find a better product anywhere. I no longer live in the area, but stop by every time I'm visiting or passing through Newport News. Started eating there in 1976 and been enjoying it ever since. Hats off to Stavroula and son for carrying on Gus's fine tradition.

“Bring cash.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

This is much nicer and cleaner than the other hot dog king. I think they are owned by separate families. The menu is very small, but good. Hot dogs, hamburgers, corn dogs, chicken sandwiches, fries, and shakes. I don't think they take anything but cash. Their food is good and the staff is nice. If you are a health but or vegetarian, you will be disappointed.
