Excellent selection of hot dogs. They have virtually anything you can think of. Was a little concerned to be charged $3 for a Snapple and $5 for a basket of fries. 2 hot dogs, 1 basket of fries and a drink... the bill came out to be $20. These were delicious hot dogs and I will probably be back...but the... More

This place has so many different ways to make a hot dog, and they all have really cool names like the Deputy Dawg (bbq and onion), or the Dog Father (marinara, peppers and onions). Cool Miami Dolphins theme, this place is cool.

Although I was born in Connecticut and raised in Massachusetts, it wasn't until I left New England when I saw an episode of Man vs. Food that I was introduced to Woodys. Took my fiance there while we were in town for the Holidays and it was as authentic and eclectic as I imagined. The local greats mounted on the... More

Great food for it being hot dogs. Gourmet dogs is something I never thought of but the toppings they use are great.

The little lady and I spent the day walking around Downtown Hartford. All the walking made us hungry and even though we had planned on going to Woody's, we actually happened to be passing by around the time we were getting hangry. I am not a big hot dog fan and normally I need to be in the mood however,... More

This review has nothing to do with the food. I was visiting Hartford last week and planned to go to Woody's so I checked their website 2 weeks ago to get the hours. Their site indicated they closed at 3:00 everyday, but also indicated there are expanded hours in the summer. Since I was not able to get to downtown... More

I loved this little hot dog shop. The hot dogs were amazing and is a must while traveling through Hartford. The only downside to this place was that it closes at 3pm on weekdays. If you can make it in time, it will be an experience well worth your money. I recommend the Deputy Dog (but so will everyone else).... More

Don't let GPS fool you....No outdoor signage in Downtown Hartford....but if you find it (and hours are short most days)....WOW>.....Get the Deputy Dog to go for the tradition but all the dogs we tried were awesome.....The toppings are the cherry on a great sundae of quality meat and well toasted roll....MUST DO if you are a "dog person"!!!

Small place that you can get to from Main Street or Pratt Street. We each had the Deputy Dog which were on nicely grilled buns. The deputy dog is a hot dog topped with pulled pork and cheese. They were very good and very filling. Also had some tasty fries. We stopped after a UCONN basketball game and the place... More

Here you will get some of the most unusual hot dogs you can find, but all of them taste great. Not too many places toast hot dog buns any more, but Woody's does not cut any corners. They also have a bar area that is nice, but never took off. It looks more like a man cave. The hardest part... More
