Been eating these hotdogs since it use to be called "Johnson's". They boil the dogs here which is contrary to what most places do. The chiller is meaty and very tasty. I take mine with extra mustard, chilli, and Cole slaw. Two made this way...did the trick for me. I also had two sides. One was baked beans the other was a bacon ranch macoronni salad but excellent.More

One of my go to lunch spots for wraps, hotdogs, salads, sandwiches, hamburgers, soups and the occasional home cooked meal special. They have generous portions and good prices!

This place is retro. Like you step back in time. The food is great. But they still breakfast until 10am and that's on another level. Great place for good food.

Been eating here for many years. The menu has expanded a bit, but the dogs and burgers are still the best things to eat. Very delicious. Very inexpensive. The building is small and old. Could use fixing up, but it's just a dog joint, so...it is what it is.More

Good food at reasonable prices. Hotdogs have been served in Portsmouth at this very location for at least 50 years now. Originally known as Johnsons hotdogs, boughtout and renamed Copelands about 20 years ago. Hotdogs and buns are steamed. Good homemade BBQ everyday. Seating is...very limited but they get you in and out very swiftly. Looking for a no frills hotdog and other quick foods, this is your place.More
