My family has been going to the Famous for as long as I can remember. At least 20 years, if not more. We live about 50 minutes away and it's always worth the drive. They use the perfect combination of quality hot dogs, THE BEST chili, mustard and just the right amount of onions. We always bring some home with... More

This establishment has been around for decades and the consistency of the quality of the food has not changed. They specialize in their secret recipe chili for the dogs, burgers, and fries. A hot dog with everything consists of a hot dog on a frsh roll with a touch of mustard, homemade chili, and fresh diced sweet onions piled high.... More

Was there with my family tonight. Got a bowl of chile, it wasn't a bowl. It was disappointing. Will not order again. Everything else was ok. Service was slow, food was out slow. Not the Famous I worked for. Just disappointing.

Much nicer than the Famous Hot in town. Limited menu of hotdog and burger. Beware the burger is just a burger cut in half on a hot dog bun with hot dog fixins. Lots of chopped onion just scrape it off until you have your amount. Fries just OK

The Famous is a must whenever I get to the area, which is about once a year. Often times, It's my first stop! The dogs are amazing, no matter how you like them. In fact, when we get a yen for them at home, in Nevada, we send someone in our Pennsylvania plant to pick up the ingredients, which they... More

We stopped here as we were in the area and needed a place to eat. Two of us ordered the famous wieners with "everything" as they say, which is chili, mustard, and onions. They aren't kidding on the onions, they pack quite a few of them on top of everything, very finely diced, so if you don't like onions, you... More

Well...I have to say we were disappointed. I would have thought a place that's been around this long was much better with their chili dogs. First the positive: My daughter liked their chili. She doesn't normally like chili, and ordered on the side with her dogs, and ended up eating all the chili. The fries were very good and you... More

Being a local, I would definitely say you must try one, before judging. Just ask for a hot dog with everything, that being a jumbo dog, the best chili sauce and onions. AND lots of napkins!
