I was not disappointed. The hot dog menu was extensive. It was hard to choose! I had the "Ruben Bad Dog" (all beef hotdog). It had a slice of Swiss cheese between the roll and dog. A slice of dill pickle and Russian dressing on the side of the dog. Everything was covered with a great tasting sauerkraut. Delicious! I... More

Every time we come to town we make it a point to visit Tommy's. As always we were not disappointed. Tommy was there in the background as his "man" in the window took our order. Once our food was ready it was Tommy who delivered it to us. He is so customer oriented, his first thought is to check and... More

We visit cape may every year and my kids can't wait to eat lunch every day at this place. Wide variety of different hot dogs to choose from and are all very tasty, my favorite is the tornado dog with mash potatoes and hot peppers or the Texas tommy. The slushes are also very good and can be blended. Although... More

Me and my daughter went there for 2 dogs. She had the small one. I had the bigger one and they were both delicious. The line moves quickly. Great afternoon snack.

What a unique and fun place to get a Hot Dog! They are high quality and very tasty. Around lunch time, do to their popularity, be prepared to wait. Even though the service is fast, sometimes there is 20 to 30 people in line.

This place is all that we read about and more. If in town a must stop. We went early and beat the lines, but later in the day the lines were long. It's worth the wait. Big menu, so know what you want before you get to the counter. Friendly staff. We preferred the smaller dogs and ate two of... More

Our beautiful daughter brought us down to Cape May for Father's Day. We had already eaten at another establishment when we passed Tommy's Hot Dogs on Jackson St. & I said that I wanted to come back down on my birthday in July for a Birthday Hot Dog!! Yesterday was the day. As I stood in line for half hour... More

It's a hot dog place! That said, the leaner weiner with mashed potatoes and brown mustard is delicious. And I like that they have itty-bitty frozen drink choices. Fun stop--could have eaten many more than the one I ordered.

Yup, this place's hot dogs ARE as great as all the review. We actually got them twice on our vacation to Cape May this summer. I had the Chicago-esque dog and it was delicious. My hubby had something with chilli and cheese. Great also. The kids had naked dogs and they were yummy too. This place is right near the... More
