You can't miss with Doug's Dogs. Always a great hot dog or sausage every time you go there. The toppings are endless. Just tell what you want on your masterpiece and they build it with a smile. The also make their own soft drinks which...are very good as well. Try the Root Beer. It is excellent. You get great food, great soft drinks, and great fast and friendly service each and every time you go there. By far the best bang for your buck here in New England. I have stopped in there many times either alone or with friends and family. Give yourself, a friend, or family member a treat and stop by and check them out for yourself. You won't be disappointed.More

Hard to rate a drive in steamed hot dog stand. We were traveling back from Vermont on 101 and we were getting hungry. Not big hungry just something to carry us along until we got home and we found this place. From the people stopping...we were not the first to discover this place. They had steady customers but never a line. Parking not an issue. Menu mainly concentrates around variations on hot dogs. Doug has his own great soda. Food was quick and perfect for what it was. My wife loved the soda. Overall great quick experience. Try it if you are in the mood for a reasonable price hot dog lunch. No seating, but could use some.More

Growing up in NJ I had more than my share of steamed hot dogs served by street vendors or family owned stands. This place was run by the same man for years and now his son, Spencer has taken over and continued the tradition. It...is worth the trip, but certainly a stop if you are traveling on Rt. 101 through the western part of NH.More

Dougs Dogs has been an intistusion on Route 101 for as long as I can Remember. In the summer at lunch the line is very long but well with the wait. He also carries his own homemade grape and orange pop. This is not Heath...food , just some of the best Digs on the planet .More

If this place is busy and you go on lunch, be prepared to wait. Waited in line for 20 mins for two hot dogs and chips. Guy was friendly enough (Doug?) But i stood there awkwardly as he was cleaning up after his last person...and didn't acknowledge me. Customer service is important when you're running your own place. The hot dogs are reasonably priced and you pick your toppings. Just might not be back due to wait time.More

Doug's Hot Dogs is a permanent fixture in Marlborough and is a long time favorite of the locals. He basically offers hot dogs with a wide variety of toppings including his own homemade chili. You can get chips and soft drinks as well. My favorite...is to get an Italian sausage with all the trimmings whenever I'm in the area. This is a popular spot so plan on waiting in line if you stop by at mealtime. Doug is pretty quick though and the line moves quickly. All items are low priced which makes the wait worthwhile.More

Hot dogs with the typical things you would expect at a well equipped hot dog stand. Expect to see that most of the customers are regulars and most are local workers -- especially construction trades. Located near the intersection of Route 101 & route 124.

Three generations have made Doug's Dogs THE place to stop for a quick and tasty lunch, though might not be quick if the lines are long .... Tasty, oh yes, with choice of ten toppings all included for the same flat price of $1.75. But...don't limit yourself to just dawgs, try the kielbasa or sausage with peppers and onions. If it's a nice day, enjoy your meal at one of the trestle tables. And finally, to sweeten you up, check out their family-made maple syrup, boiled from Marlborough's finest sugar maples. Doug's is the original step van doggery, ENJOY!!More

OK, I'm a hot dog snob....you know what that means....natural casing, New England style roll, specific pickle relish and raw onions with yellow mustard. When I stopped by the dogs were in the NY style bun, the dogs were not natural casing and the dog...was soggy and mealy...., won't be stopping back anytime soon.More

Truly the best hot dog wagon for miles. The toppings are free. The hot dogs are now 1.75 due to price inflation of everything but still worth it. I also recommend the chili cheese nachos
