I stopped in on a whim. Was in town for business and looking for a unique place for late lunch. Curiosity had me down by the lake and light house. Heading back I saw trolley dogs and thought this I had to see. The dogs are great. Fries thin, crispy and fresh to order. The trolley running on track overhead... More

I really enjoyed their chili dogs and teenage daughter had their Italian Sausage and said it was very good. The prices are very reasonable and it is a nice atmosphere by Kenosha's lake.

We went there yesterday 03/29/2016 for a Chicago dog. I ordered 1 with everything,fries and a soda. My wife ordered 1 with everything but relish and a soda. We got exactly what we ordered which was a nice surprise considering the problems we occur at "fast food" places that have problems getting our order correct. The dogs were good. I... More

First stop in Kenosha after driving up from Central Illinois. They have a fun selection of hot dogs. We got the Johnny Bravo, Tijuana, and Kenosha dogs. While tasty, most of the ingredients were pretty basic. Fries were good. Soda fountain was a bit janky, sputtered, and may have been running out of some syrups. The seating area was a... More

I took my children to the Civil War museum for an outing. When I inquired about some place to eat the cashier recommended Trolley Dogs. It was horrible! The place was freezing and filthy. We ate while wearing our winter jackets. The tables all had food on them or food below them on the floor. Our order was wrong even... More

The dogs were just ok. Not the chicago dog I expected. Service was not great. Inside smelled bad and the washrooms were really bad. Not the most appetizing place.

Craving a Chicago style hot dog? Look no further than Trolley Dogs Kenosha's own authentic wiener stand. The dogs are always fresh and cooked perfectly so they snap when you you bite in and all the right condiments are available to make your dog taste delicious.

This place is the real deal. You can not pass up quality like this. They know how to make a chicago style hot dog and they do it right. Wrapped up with the fresh fries and everything. I believe this may be one of the best kept secrets about kenosha. Whenever I'm in the area I always stop in. I... More
