Came across this place while driving through Ashtabula. The first thing I noticed was a book exchange box or something to peruse if dining alone. Upon entering, I was warmly greeted and the owner even approached each patron to thank them for coming. There are tables as well as a large eat-at counter as well as tables outside! The dogs...

My friend and I stopped by on a whim and had an absolutely perfect experience. The atmosphere was cozy and inviting. I felt welcome immediately. The server was very friendly and helpful and other staff members, including Tony himself, were sure to check that we had everything we needed at all times. I stuck with a grilled cheese and the...

We weren't impressed at all with this place and it also is a bit expensive for a hot dog. We both said we'll not go back because we felt so terrible afterwards.

We enjoyed the quarter pound hot dog and their special ribbon fries. Quality was great. We will come back, want to try their elephant ears. Not real fond of a shared male/female restroom, but it worked.

The hot dogs are meaty and not over cooked. The ribbon fries in a doggie dish are great with chili and cheese. The wait staff is attentive and friendly. They even have good elephant ears. It is a little pricey, but the food is great

We stopped in the Dog House while visiting my home town. Were just looking for a light snack, so we each ordered the Tony's Top Dog and shared a full order of the ribbon fries. The dogs were delicious and fixed to order, and there were enough ribbon fries for three people! The servers were smiling and attentive - and... More

in town with my son to visit my mom. Headed to Tony's Dog House for lunch. The ribbon fries were amazing and plentiful. I was most impressed with the service. The girls working the counter were wonderful and attentive. Tony, the owner stopped and personally thanked each diner there and chatted with everyone. True customer service is a lost art.... More
