Anytime we are in the area we need to stop and get a couple of hotdogs at Blackie's. Get in line and tell them how many you want -- they are ready almost immediately. It is a must to put on Blackie"s special hotdog relish -- I hope you like it spicy. They are closed on Fridays so make sure... More

For what they stand for and how they run their Business, you never see such quality anymore. Sometimes I forget that other towns don't know about blackies, which is fine, it's our little gem. I love blackies so much. Their relish is of course their main show piece, especially on top of their signature dog. Doesn't get any better than... More

Was a bit confused when I went to order. There were no signs indicating this and people were spaced out amongst the barstools. Maybe I missed the sign? Anyway old fashion place and I had waited a long time to go here. I was not disappointed with the delicious dog. I was disappointed there were no fries but there were... More

Hot dogs are small but tasty. Their relish is different, a little hot but worth a try. Service is very fast. Don't go out of your way but if it's on the way given them a try.

Blackie’s Hot Dog Stand 2200 Waterbury Rd. Cheshire Ct. Located near the Cheshire –Waterbury line this iconic piece of Americana has been serving Hot Dogs and memories since 1928. The menu is very limited; Hot Dogs, Hamburgers, Cheeseburgers and a bag of chips. No French Fries, no chicken tenders, no pizza. People come from all over for a quick dog... More

I have been going to Blackie's since before I was born!!!! Blackie's is a family tradition within my family and I have always remembered going there. Their hot dogs are deep fried and then grilled and have a nice snap and crunch when you bite into them. The mustard is a Dusseldorf style mustard that I have found impossible to... More

Traveling through Cheshire-Waterbury on 84 you must stop and pick up a dog or two, load'em up with the best hot relish around and don't forget a small carton of chocolate milk.. Talking old school here! If you want casual, say eating out of your wagon trunk then this is for you.. Been around since the 1920's.

This place has not changed in the past 50 years ! Closed on Friday that I think dated to the "No Meat On Friday" custom. The Relish is to die for, it is unique to "Blackies". The Hot Dags are boiled and have a unique taste to them and they are very good. Only once have i seem someone order... More

Blackies has been here forever at the top of the hill on route 70 in Cheshire. The dogs are small and inexpensive and ok though I have had many better ones over the years like the famous split dogs in Savin Rock. Their special relish is apparently loved by many though I can live without it and would opt for... More

I have stopped by Blackie's several times over the years when I am in the area. The hot dogs are great. I like their hot pepper relish. Friendly staff
