Super friendly family own and run local place. Super nice and accommodating for us while traveling with our dogs. We wanted something other than a quick fast food meal while traveling by Benson on the highway and Wild Dogs was perfect!

This is one place for a long time I have never tried. I went in there for the first time with the manager of the park I live in. First I noticed was how clean it was. The people working there was super friendly. I...ordered an Arizona hot dog and that came with chili and pastrami. I also had fries and a drink. For me it was excellent. I know my friend was enjoying his. I am going to try Wild Dogs again in the future. I do think if you want a quick lunch this place will do. What really surprised me is it isn't all about hot dogs. There are sandwiches also. I truly believe people should try this placeMore

Ask for Amanda to serve you as she did an outstanding job! We came here because I was told that a visit to Arizona without trying a Sonoran Dog is like visiting Philly and not having a cheesesteak. I ordered the Sonoran Dog and the...wife had the brisket sandwich. We split an order of onion rings. The Sonoran dog was top shelf. Loaded with everything you'd expect; 100% Vienna beef bacon-wrapped hot dog, guacamole, refried beans, shredded cheese, diced tomato and onion, chili verde sauce and a little of Wild Dog's spicy sauce on a nice soft bun. I took Amanda's advice and did not attempt to pick it up to eat it. Instead, she advised prudent use of the knife and fork. It was tasty, with all the flavors coming through. The wife raved about her brisket sandwich and how tasty it was as well as how awesome the bread was. The onion rings were cooked to perfection and served up hot and tasty. We were given a complimentary little dessert of cold chocolate pudding topped with whipped cream and sprinkles. Perfect! Their menu offers 15 styles of dogs, as well as a nice assortment of sandwiches, burgers, appetizers as well as fish & chips. The place has a nice mom and pop cafe' feel with big band 40s music playing low in the background. I highly recommend this awesome little restaurant next time you find yourself anywhere near Benson, AZ. You will not be disappointed!More

I love this place. When I travel to see family and friends in New Mexico I try to stop here for lunch. The food is great, the people are great, the place is sparkling clean. What more could you ask for. I don't write reviews...often but these people deserve a mention for all the love and effort they put into their business.More

Amid the virus panic, Wild Dogs has created their own drive through system in their parking lot. Multiple menus are posted so you can choose from the many delicious options while awaiting your turn to order, then a runner takes your order to the kitchen...and another brings your food out a few short minutes later. Way to go guys! Looking forward to dining inside once again when this mess is over!More

My wife told me about it as her ladies group eats there. I swung by and picked up lunch there. I had a bacon cheeseburger, onion rings and a slice of cheesecake to go. The food was incredible and the portions are huge. There are...no waitresses as you order and wait. I’ll definitely be coming back and really enjoyed the meal.More

We have managed to visit Wild Dogs about once a year for five years or so. They are now on a new location which offers better facilities. The dogs remain very good. We had an excellent Reuben Dog and an average Green Chile Cheese Dog....Fries and potato salad were average. Always look forward to stopping here.More
