This was a great place for a quick lunch! Good variety of different hot dogs and the prices were good too! The owner insisted we eat first and if we liked it, we paid after. Of course we paid after, the food was so good!...More

We make awesome hot dogs! We have all the fantastic standards, Chicago Dog, NYC Dog, Boston Club Dog, but we also have newer additions to the menu. Wisconsin Mac & Cheese Dog, delicious soups, and specialty sandwiches such as Pastrami will make your mouth water. Not limited to carnivores, there are 7 vegetarian dogs as well. Top it off with North End challenging cannoli and you have all the makings of a great stop on your visit to Salem.
