Get the shaggy dog - it's topped with BBQ sauce and delicious coleslaw. Hands down the best hot dog I have ever had. We stopped for lunch one day and went back for dinner the next! Fun atmosphere and great food!

This is a good place to take the whole family for a cheap meal. Good hot dogs. The kids really liked them. The staff were friendly. Our fried food was on the greasy side, but we could tell it was freshly cooked.

Grab a Dog or some clams and sit on a rock down the end of the Neck. Relax and enjoy the view and the ocean breeze.

Top Dog is a fun place to eat hotdogs topped with all types of condiments. There are also other items on the menu, fries, haddock sandwiches, etc. You can write on the walls in sharpie and draw on the blackboards with chalk

I've probably eaten 10 hotdogs in 10 years, but this place is great. Fun, cute, casual with great service and a really delicious hot dog. The meat has a nice snap to the casing. I really like the "junkyard dog" which allows you to create your own for a nominal amount. I combined the grilled peppers and onions with jalapeño... More

What a great place to go for a quick, tasty bite to eat! While in Rockport for the weekend we stopped in here on two separate occasions. The first time we opted to try the clam chowder. It was clocked full of clams and steaming hot. Certainly helped to take the chill off on an unseasonably cool night. The second... More

We went to Top Dog for the first time as we were in search of a great lobster roll. We ended up at Top Dog. The lobster rolls were perfect. Lots of fresh lobster meat. We also enjoyed fabulous onion rings. The person taking our order did not hear us ask for a hot dog as well. The woman handling... More

Great fast food, cute restaurant. Went there for lunch and had the chili which was great and the cheese fries. My daughter had a hot dog and she loved it. Staff were not completely professional, that is why I did not give it 5 stars.
