First off, and not to patronize, but for those of you not from the area The Trolly Stop Restaurant across from Station One Condo's memorializes the olden-day trolley to the beach from town. The restaurant is in the vicinity of old Station # 1. Now as for the dogs. I have been a patron since it opened in the (What?... More

Billed as the 'oldest blah blah blah', this place basically pulls hot dogs out of a bowl of hot water and slaps one of the sauces you pick onto them. It is a turn and burn place. You walk in and hit the counter, order, step twice to the left and pay and pick your lukewarm pathetic dogs that have... More

Very good spot to stop in for a quick lunch. Hotdogs served about a million different ways. Even a few vegetarian options!

You have to stop by if you are in Wrightsville Beach. It's a unique little place, and the hot dogs are worth it. They even have a gluten free bun option!

Loved this place. Very cute with nice staff and great food. I'm not a hotdog fan but I would definitely go again. Cute sitting place outside. Great experience.

Nothing fancy about this place except they have the best dogs on the beach! Limited seating outside, but you MUST go next door to Kohs for custard. Great for kids! You can even go by boat, grab a few dogs, then head back out on the water - just dock at the public docks.

This place has been around for many many years and still going strong. We stopped by for a quick bite, ordered 2x Wrightsville, All The Way and American hot dogs - all tasty and delicious. The place inside can be busy at times, limited seating outside.

I've been coming here for years (Wrightsville, Carolina), but it was my niece and nephew's first visit and they were floored.,my nephew, a choosy New Yorker, proclaimed it the best hotdog ever. My niece loved all the options. Bring cash to avoid the ATM fees, get two dogs each, and don't miss the sweet tea!

The Trolly Stop is a great place to stop for a quick and budget friendly lunch while enjoying the beach. The staff are very friendly and helpful in making sure that your order is as you like it. First, the hot dogs are delicious nestled in their freshly steamed buns. We had the Carolina Hot Dog which is served with... More
