Spartanburg has a bunch of sandwich shops and grills that are "old school". This is one of them, not the best but good. Hot Dogs are OK, small wiener, steamed bun, good homemade chili. Onion rings are a little greasy but good homemade onion rings. Pinto beans are nothing special but when coupled with fried bologna, corn muffin, raw onion,... More

Best hotdogs in Spartanburg, I love their peppery chili, and the slaw is good. I always love to get both on my hotdog, and a side of chili for my fries.

Have been going to this dog house pretty much since they opened. The homemade chili is to die for. You just can't beat their hot dogs & hamburgers.

I love a good hot dog. Was told this was a good restaurant. Had 2 dogs with chili, cheese and mustard. Chili was peppery spicy - a tad heavy on the black pepper, but decent. Seemed like the buns were steamed and I like that instead of just putting the dog and condiments in a cold bun. French fries are... More

Ricky's and one other place are the 2 top places to go in Sptbg for hot dogs. I usually get a hot dog all the way and a hamburger D. Great dogs and hamburgers. Their chili is awesome and they steam their buns. I moved away from Sptbg but I always have to go here when I go back
