This place is such a treat. It brings you back to a long forgotten era. I wasn't alive in the hayday of the drive in food joints but growing up on happy days and such, I always thought it would have been great - well Hot Dog Johnnys allows you that. The staff are great and the dogs are the... More

Been there for YEARS and always crowded no matter when you go. Dogs are great. Fries are wonderful. You gotta stop there at least once. A fixture on route 46.

If you like Hot Dogs --THIS is your stop! Menu is Hot Dogs or Hot Dogs! Fries, drinks, buttermilk and a few snack items - Cannot wait to go again --will get two instead of one!

Even you haven't eaten here... you owe it to yourself to try it. A slice of classic Americana. This Extremely popular place, has been serving up, what is arguably, the best dogs on the east coast for many decades. The fresh buttermilk, and birch beer(served in frosty mugs!!) are also a must try. This place has nestled along a bend... More

Roadside americana! Hot dogs are ok and the staff is very nice! I got a t shirt! There are some swings and there is a nice creek behind the place. Men's room stunk pretty bad! Prices were good.

I've been going to Hot Dog Johnny's since college days and it never fails to excite my taste buds! I got my whole family hooked. The hot dogs are always hot and fresh, fries are crisp and they have REAL birch beer which can be served in frosted mugs. They also have Buttermilk, which seems to go over big (one... More

Hotdog Johnny's serves arguably the best hotdogs on the East Coast. Also, the staff is very nice and polite. It is located on the side of the road, right by the Delaware Water Gap, so it is also in a very scenic area. Great for families with kid's. Also, a great place for hot-rodder's to meet and enjoy a hotdog... More

When heading up to the Delaware Water Gap I always stop in Buttzville at Johnny's hotdogs. I don't eat many hotdogs, but when I do I stop here. Their hot dogs and fries are always hot and fresh, and the birch beer is a must to try. It is a throwback to earlier times and must see.

The hotdogs are dependably tasty and the fries are even better. We love the old fashioned feel of the place and the fact that we have been coming here since we were kids and nothing has changed.

It's a very country feel and I loved the frost mug birch beer, hotdogs with pickle and their French fries. They do use peanut oil and their are signs so make sure you are not allergic. While there, you should definitely pick up a t-shirt. Youth $11.50 Adults $12.50
