This was the place to grab a hot dog and soda before catching a movie next door. Although it is now closed, there are still plenty of other places to eat in downtown Orinda.

I've had a few bad experiences lately with restaurants in the Lamorinda area. They are known for their good food and friendly service. My experience was overpriced mediocre food I could have made myself slung at me by a waitperson who couldn't care less and disappeared.. Kasper's is an East Bay tradition. If you want a great hot dog with... More

You really can't go wrong with a good hot dog! The buns are hot and fresh and they have a variety of hot dogs (Kosher, etc.). Great for a "eat and run", which I have done a couple of times. I will continue to go back to Kasper's! Yummy dogs! : )

If your in the mood for a good old fashion hot dog, this is the place for you.... Sometimes there's a line but it moves very fast, you can watch them make your dog... Just try one and you'll be hooked.

This is as good as it gets in CA hot dog land. Great dogs, generous toppings, friendly service. You can even enjoy your dog at one of the outside tables and watch the passing scene of moviegoers from the Orinda Theater next store. My partner's from Chicago and he swears by Kasper's.

A "mom and pop" run this hot dog joint, and they are sweet as can be. Often there's a hube line, but they make those dogs right in front of you and they are G-O-O-D!!!

Wow, just tried the K Casper's Hot Dog just before going into the Orinda Theater. Next door for a quick dog before the movie started. I didn't know that we had a K Kasper's and tasted just like the C Casper's. They prepared it the same, but I wasn't asked about sliced or chopped onions or tomatoes, she just prepared... More

Californians don't really understand much about a good hot dog, but this is as good as it gets.

They have more than one size of hot dogs. Kasper's has been in the area (mostly Oakland) for years.
