Don't come here expecting the staff to gently serve you at your table. Just step up to the counter and make your order. They are not rude, but they are fast and concise. The hot dogs are really quite good, with a variety of styles and toppings. The building has lots of interesting decorating, sort of throw-back to 1930s to... More

I can only tell you about the ceddar dog, because that is what I get every single time. I can only eat 2. meat...yum, cheese....yum, bun...yum, dog....yum.

First off.. The food. The food is not even average. The food is not even hot. The best thing there are the pickles. The service.. The people who work there are just flat out rude. They treat customers like "lesser than" which the customer is the one actually giving them business. I refuse to go there again.

After lowering your customer service expectation/demands, you'll find out why you came to Yesterdog: excellent tasting hot dogs with soft buns and phenomenal chili. Tip them good and you'll get a fun response.

My partner took me there for a lunch. That was my first visit. The service was very quick, no waiting time. Staff friendly. The hotdogs are great with different topics. I'll be back at my next visit to USA.

Went here while visiting family during Thanksgiving week and it was great!!! The hot dogs are awesome, several different toppings to choose from and the atmosphere is very nostalgic. Would definitely go back when we are in town again.

Go back in history to look at the memorabilia on the walls. The hot dogs are just what you'd expect and you can't get a bad dog if you choose your own toppings. The staff will explain menu items and they are so cheerful and friendly. It was not crowded when we were there at 3:00pm, so I would expect... More

For decades, Yesterdog has been a favorite Grand Rapids eatery for late-night college students and Saturday-lunch grandkids alike. It's a quirky place, where crowds order together and then sort it all out when it's ready. And bring cash. But the dogs are delicious as hot dogs are, and the atmosphere is energetic. It's a landmark I make a point of... More

Admittedly it has been quite some time since having lunch here; there's a reason. We thought the dogs were nothing special and worst of all the place was not clean. Not going back.

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.
