The best hotdogs ever! It's unique but take cash because they don't take debit or credit cards. The decor is a throwback to the 50's and before.

Everyone has memories of a food place from their childhood, for GR natives this is it. I'm certain that it is that nostalgia that bring folks back but being a newcomer, I was very shocked to have such bad food at what seems to be the GR joint. These aren't the dogs you are looking for. Menu is simple but... More

This has become East Grand Rapids Iconic food place. My wife is from Chicago and she says really bad things about the meat in the hot dogs......kinda like my Dad who always said hot dogs were made from lips and the other end of the dog...he meant the hole at the other end too.....so if you can get past the,...

This place is full of character and tradition. I've been coming here for 35 years. I've been to many Coney Islands including Lafayette's in Detroit and though they are great in their own regards, this place rocks and is exactly what I need periodically.

Yes, it's a kind of fun place to go with the unique decor, quirky staff and unusual atmosphere. It is not the cleanest eatery around. Most importantly, the hotdogs are not all that great. The buns get smashed and all the toppings are oozing out in the clear plastic wrappers. If you like that sort of thing, you're probably a... More

While visiting Grand Rapids with my girlfriend, we decided to eat at Yesterdog for a few reasons: 1) a friend referred us 2) it was cheap 3) it was in the movie "American Pie." We were not disappointed. The restaurant is one of a kind, and has been a landmark in Grand Rapids for many years. The food is good,... More

I've enjoyed the 'yesterdog' for years now. Most of my experiences are from late nights which I must say have exceeded my expectations every time. But lets be honest, it is a hot dog place... hot dogs only get so good. With that being said these are some of the best I've ever had. Be prepared to order and get... More

We took 3 kids - 2, 10 & 12, plus 4 adults here. Fantastic hotdogs! The kids love the cheddar cheese dog! Grown ups love the ultimate dogs! So so good! It is a must visit when we go to Grand Rapids!

When in Grand Rapids, to as the locals do. Go to Yesterdog .. ALL they serve is Hot Dogs (ergo, the name?) It's a legendary place with cheap eats.
