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.

I'm not gonna leave along review… Yesterday is kind of a famous place… But they don't take credit cards, which means they're probably not reporting other income, and if you try to use a card they tell you to go down the street to an ATM. Given this fact I cannot justify paying three dollars for a chilli dog. Especially... More

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.

Maybe it was because I was here before 11 and it needs some time to get ready but was not as good as I remember. Have not been here in years so the memory may not be what it used to be. However the dogs were mushy and the chili was cold, and the buns not really steamed as long... More

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!
