“Caspers.... still as good as when I ate there as a kid in the 60's”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Living now on the east coast, Caspers is one of those bay area places I miss. Love their hot dogs though I always have them hold the relish. Love the tomato slices, onions and mustard, and one of the best hot dogs there is! Costco members and other stores in the bay area sell Caspers hot dog 1 and 2 pound packs, but that misses the social fun of being at Caspers. Another chain Kaspers likewise is in the bay area and also of the same high quality! Limited menu choices, but for a good hot dog, this is the place!

“A Richmond Landmark and the Best Hot Dogs in the World”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

A return visit to my hometown has to include a Casper's Hot Dog. Located across from the Richmond Civic Center, it has been in the same location for at least 50 years. They only serve Hot Dogs and they are the best I have ever have. Foot Long on a hot steamed bun with everything on them from the usual mustard and relish to sliced onion and tomato. Can get crowded during weekday lunch, but well worth any wait.

“One of the Best, if Not the Best Hot Dog”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Casper's Hot Dogs is one of the Best, if Not the Best Darn Hot Dog ever. It's been around ever since I was kid growing up in the Richmond area. Located in Downtown Richmond on MacDonald Ave across from the Richmond Library. These Dogs have one of the best tasting with the right amount of condiments you can ask for. The Casper dog comes standard with Mustard, Relish, sliced Onion (You can always gete chopped Onions) and sliced tomatoes. They now sell the Hot Dogs them selfs at Safeway and Raley's in the refigeration meat department. Enjoy!!

The memories from school days and after church lunch with my family bring back the flavor even in 1983 when attending UCBerk. and traveling by BART to the computer center with three Casper`s dogs under my arm, Now in chile, nothings the same, thanks for the memories
