Rawley's is legend in this area. It needs to be on your bucket list. Definitely try their Dog with the Works.

OK hit dogs, OK shakes, OK fires. Saw this place on the food channel and drove 85 miles for lunch. Not worth the trip but if you're driving by and never had a deep fried dog give it a shot

Ordered two hot dogs well done with the works. Not what they used to be. The dogs were not as I ordered and after going there for over 40 years that was the last time.

Have been here many times and it is always great! Hotdog with bacon is the best! Everything is fresh to order and quick as well. A Fairfield staple!

Rawley's is a Fairfield landmark. Very basic -- great dogs and fries. Deep fried dogs and buttered toasted buns are the secret. And don't expect a fancy setting -- the décor is early shambles which is part of Rawley's appeal.
