The owner is what makes this place fun, if you happen to go in while he's there. The fries are good and there are drink refills. The place is clean and bright.

Sometimes I just want a really good chili cheese dog with lots of fixin's. We've been to Trolley dogs three times, as recently as last Saturday when we were downtown for an event. The Trolley dogs are okay - not exceptional, no real complaint, just don't 'wow' me. Dr. Dawgs in White Fish Bay north of Milwaukee is much better... More

We enjoy any excuse to come in here. Yes, we just get dogs, but they are so good! The only negative about this place is the lack of heat in the winter. But when so many places like this shut down in winter, I guess we can eat with winter coats and hats on if it means Trolley Dogs.

Ate here two years ago, was great. Went this last Saturday with the family. Took ten minutes for our food, the hot dogs were cold inside, not good. The hand cut French fries were great. Staff seemed a bit overwhelmed and distracted. Thinking maybe just an off day. Nothing worse than a cold hot dog!

If you are longing for the taste of par-cooked (double cooked) french fries then Trolley Dogs is the place you are looking for. It is conveniently located in downtown Kenosha (right across the street from the Jockey outlet) and close to the harbor on the corner of 6th Avenue and 55th Street. Parking can be a little difficult since it... More

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
