Opened in 1976, this hot dog shop is terrific. Hot dogs are offered with five different topping combinations. Chips and drinks. Open 10:30 am until 2:30 am, except Sundays, closed at 1:00 am.

If you are looking for a chili hotdog the this is your place. The chili is just right, not too strong or spicy, and plentiful. Old style decorations. We found one older high chair but adequate. Popular and for good reason. If you want something other than a hotdog do not go here. Does not take credit card.

Very simply a great tasting hot dog that once you like will bring you back again and again. Sometimes there is a taste experience that can not be duplicated. If near eastown, worth the stop for a quick lunch or late night snack. I go two ultras and a bag of chips.

An amazing spot for local flavor. But you must know the ordering etiquette! Order your dogs, then step back. Wait until your asked to pay and order drinks. No credit cards. Only cash, baby. With dogs in hand, grab a comfy booth and check out the place's antique Coke signs and paraphernalia. Then, enjoy!

Been there many times and like the steamed buns, but this time they had to be a week old. Disappointed.

Now, there is a lot of hot dog competition out there in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Leo's Coney Island, Corner Bar Inc, Jonny B'z, etc. Despite the competition, Yesterdog is my absolute favorite. I have been snacking on these dogs since I was a teenager riding my bike to Eastown for a Ultradog and a small Pepsi. Now after living in... More

We come here quite often. This place is very chill and laid back . I LOVE the hotdogs. Their chilie is unique and taste amazing! They are always friendly and even though they are usually pretty busy, you never have to wait be too long for your order.

Three times I've been taken to Yesterdog since moving back to Michigan, after many years in Los Angeles. My GR friends swore it was a great dog..."the best!" I was used to Pinks in Los Angeles, especially their spicy Polish dog, among the myriad combinations available. But those dogs had crunch and flavor no matter what you put on them.... More

This quirky place is fun for a quick meal or an afternoon snack. The dogs are dirty cheap but also very small. Everyone can eat 2 dogs, 1 is merely a snack. I also had some local cheese curls. It totally hit the spot. The restaurant decor is a hodgepodge- it's a memorable stop for sure. Obama has even been... More

Yesterdog has kind of a hippie feel to it and has a very eclectic atmosphere. The chili dogs are great and the service is pretty quick
