The footlong hot dogs they use are those perfect ones with the best chili that leaves a little red stain on the paper. This is a family staff and there is plenty of southern paraphernalia to keep you interested.

Order a hamburger with mustard, slaw, chili, and chopped onions...Excellent! Just be careful not to let it drip on your shirt!

I read the reviews before going here so I had good expectations. I was disappointed. The food was mediocre at best. The cheeseburger was just ok, the philly steak was just ok, the fries were lukewarm and not fresh and the service was just so-so. I think the prices were high, I had the cheesteak and fries - no drink... More

My boyfriend and I went for ice cream, it wasn't our first time there and it won't be our last! Their homemade ice cream is delicious everytime! I've had chocolate chip cookie dough, mint chocolate chip, black cherry, and cherry vanilla. All are to die for!!

Bustling and busy restaurant. Counter service and diner-type booths. The best hot dogs in the area. Restaurant too noisy for quiet conversations, but I'll be back for the hot dogs. I recommend this place.

I get it. Someone associated with the place likes clowns...and the the owner may not be offering free hugs, but he is cooking up some good hot dogs, burgers, and fries and thats why I go there. Ive been here several times (always a double cheeseburger tray with mayo and pickles) and have never had any issues with service. Fries... More

I've eaten at Doss's a couple times a year since I was a kid. After a day at the park my family and I stopped in for supper. It was crowded which it often is but the food and ice cream is pretty good. My favorite is their foot long hotdog. They throw the buns on the grill which makes... More

Stopped in for lunch, I have eaten here several times before and the food was good. It has been a couple of years since my last visit and the first thing I noticed was the price for the double cheeseburger combo had gone up about 2.00 and the foot long hot dog combo was up about 1.50. My burger was... More
