They have a menu with many variations of hot dogs. - see menu on website - I ordered a regular hot dog with mustard, onions, cheese and chili. To me it wasn't anything special - chili was commercial... More

We went and had some yummy dogs and also some tasty italian ice. Nice menu with lots of variety and a firehouse theme. A few seats indoors but mostly outdoor seating. Very friendly staff and delicious food.

This place was awesome. The food was good. We had hot dogs and ice cream. The staff was wonderful as a member and my husband being a member of EMS we were happy to see all the memorial patches on the walls. A great place to come.

Friendly people, fast service, great food and the best ice cream for dessert. You can sit at the counter inside or at the many tables outside. Your choice of type of cone and additions to ice cream are many. I'll be going there regularly this summer for the ice cream, and returning often for there delicious hot dogs.

This small restaurant attracts a family crowd, and the place is adorned with fireman memorabilia. Nice in summer for an outside seat. Hot dogs and fries are served with pride. Hats off.

Great owners and welcoming staff. Great menu of hot dogs. The sandwiches by themselves are probably a 4+ but the meat is kind of garden variety that you could buy at Shoprite. This little place could be a home run if they stepped up the hot dog itself. Having said that, I come here frequently, Captain Paul is great and... More

I have eaten at Captain Paul's many times. The hot dogs are excellent, whether you get boiled or fried. So many different variations of toppings. There are a few seats at the counter, but most seating it outside. Perfect in spring summer and fall.
