This operation has grown to 7 locations. They turn out a passable cheese steak and hot dogs unless you try Willy Joe's.

In town at a nearby hotel for my sons 5th birthday. Kids love hot dogs so we figured dinner there one of our nights. It was good! Nothing extravagant and I didn't expect that so I wasn't let down. Kids got plain dogs and fries. Myself and my husband got the classic dogs & fries. No the hot dogs aren't... More

Eating in this place is like an episode of Seinfeld's "The Soup Nazi". Lots of yelling and confusion. Once you get through all that, the dogs aren't too bad. When we're near by we always stop in for a Yacco Dog. The first time you go it might be a little intimidating, but you'll get through it.

My husband ate Yacco dogs while growing up. He loves them. I think they are alright. I'm use to the dog overflowing with toppings

I set my GPS for this place, but when it said I arrived, I didn't see it. I drove a bit up the road just in case. No luck, so I pulled into a Wawa to park & input the next closest Yocco's. As I drove towards my next way point, I seen Yocco's at the next light. I managed... More

I would imagine that many sizable tows have a popular hotdog joint. Well this is ours. The bun is not the type you ordinarily find on a dog. They are made at a local bakery and are an important part of these dogs. The chili sauce they use is one of a kind and is what gives these dogs (and... More

The signs on the high way are deceiving. We thought it was a locally owned hot dog joint. We were sadly mistaken when we realized there were 6 others just in a surrounding 11 miles. 4 hot dogs, 2 pierogies, small fry, 2 sticks: $12 They were okay and hit the spot. Food came out hot.

Very disappointed in this regional hot dog chain. The hot dogs were completely tasteless. There was brown coloring on the bottom and edges of the bun that was supposed to be chili, completely lacking any chili. The peorgies were barely eatable. Fairly long wait for plain hot dogs on plain buns. I will surely not darken their doorstep again.

It seems if you're from the Allentown area, you just always say that Yocco's Hot Dogs are the best. Well, my husband and I tried them last summer, and they were horrible. Here's why: they were all dried up, wrinkled and shriveled, and tasteless. We were expecting a plump hot dog covered in a rich sauce. ( We love hot... More

Been eating their hot dogs for 50+ years. Four dots instead of five because it's becoming harder to distinguish the size of a cheesesteak from a hot dog these days. Fries and pierogies usually have the right amount of crispy.
