“The Dog”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

What an offbeat place that serves hot dogs. Been in business for almost a century. Dogs native to VA and served plain, chili, onions, slaw or any way you want. Very tasty if you like hot dogs.
Owner is retired military and loving his 2nd career. Give it a whirl.

“Historic downtown cafe with average hot dogs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

This is a very old restaurant in downtown Wytheville. Many interesting signs and pictures provide an interesting glimpse of what the restaurant looked like 60 or 70 years ago.
We thought that the hot dogs were average, as was the service.

“Yuck!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

True, the look of this restaurant is quaint with an authentic, old-time lunch counter, however, the smell inside was so revolting that I couldn't stand to stay inside. It smelled like a mixture of gas and something rotting. We got our food to go so we could breathe while eating but the food is as bad as the smell. The famed hot dogs are limp and they are in soggy buns. Not worth it!

“Wonderful Americana decor; mundane food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

I felt like we had taken a step back in time the second we walked through the door. I loved the old Coke decor and other miscellaneous antiques. The old man working behind the counter was friendly and liked to strike up a conversation but the rest of the staff weren't as friendly; not rude, just not friendly. I tried one of their 'world famous' hotdogs and have to admit, it wasn't anything to write home about. I also tried a BBQ, and again, nothing too impressive. If anything it's worth the stop just for the atmosphere and low prices...just don't expect to eat the best hot dog ever.
