Food is not bad, but not that great either. Average at best, but you do get a lot of food for the price. Pizzas are large in size, but can sometimes taste like cardboard. Sandwiches are a good size. The fries (with cheese) are really good here, but outside of the fries, everything else is either just okay, or a... More

Dogs, Subs, Pizza--no bad choices here. Top quality, great tasting. The pizza has a great thin crust and is loaded with toppings. The dogs are great with chili, and the steaks have great flavor. The bread/rolls are fresh. This place is like stepping back in time.

My husband and I were passing through on our way home from a trip, and passed by this small but busy restaurant - which was unusual when compared to the other restaurants on the same strip, and considering it was almost 9pm. We thought we better stop and check it out. When you walk in, there is a sign that... More

That is their motto and it is true. I have frequented this establishment for quite a while now and have never been disappointed. A Fast Food chain just recently added "grilled hotdogs" to their menu but I doubt that will affect the Dog House's business. They cook them however you like. The prices are reasonable so you cannot go wrong.

This place never disappoints when I'm working nearby at the airport and am short on time. I love the efficiency, great prices and delicious food. I dream of eating this cheesesteak sandwich on the way into Wilmington every year. Can't wait to try the dog next time!

The Doghouse is one of my favorite places to eat. They make the best foot - long hotdogs in the area. The place is often busy at lunch time so get there early. You can have your "dog" any way you want it. Great prices and service.

Doghouse has been in business for about 60 or 70 years now. With that kind of longevity you know their product must be good. They always used excellent Amoroso rolls. Lunch time it is always packed, standing room only. There is a quaint counter that sits about 20 people in a classic diner style; across from the grille and food... More
