“Historic Location but no history-makin' hot dogs”
Review of Jimmies Hot Dogs

Jimmies Hot Dogs
Ranked #16 of 181 Restaurants in Albany
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 5, 2013

The dogs are the historic red, but there's some corner-cutting going on. First, the dogs need to be at least as long as the bun, and second, the chili -- if it's going to be out of a can -- needs to be a good quality. If you're stopping in at lunch, be prepared to be eating a dog that's been resting in the warmer a while. The service is friendly and, since the dogs are waitin' for you, the line moves fast. Cash only and be sure to get a soda to settle the dogs. The tables outside are under a fabulous historic oak tree which I would classify as a witness oak -- it's been there for some of Albany's significant moments. Let's get the dogs back to as good as they once were.

Been getting hot dogs from Jimmy's for about 20years. They are still very good. Area and building looks little scary though. I will continue to get hotdogs from here. I just make sure everything looks safe before getting out of car.

The staff was rude. The food was disgusting and obviously cheaply prepared. I saw roaches on the floor and ceiling. Management was also very rude and hateful. This establishment is disgusting. I don't know how they have managed to stay in business for so long. Please do not eat at this establishment if visiting the Albany area!

You have got to try the hotdogs here! This is a little hole in the was place that offers the best hot dogs in town. You will not be disappointed. There is no place to sit, you just get in line and order you dog, I suggest getting chili and onions! Yummy but smelly! You will love this place.
