“A little over-rated”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Hey you can't know the food, the hotdogs and hamburgers are awesome and griddle fried.

The service is quick but the guy that takes your order rides the very thin line between matter of fact and rude.

“A Fairfield Fast-food Institution”
Reviewed March 16, 2012

This is where the discerning diner goes for the best hot dog in Fairfield County and fries that are freshly made everyday! For locals this small red house is a landmark that we love!

“overrated”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

Rawley's used to be so much better. I know it's a town landmark, but it's gone downhill in the 20 years we have lived here. Went one day this summer and they had run out of hot dogs. Hello, you are a hot dog place! Weak fries, good shakes.

“Ok, but what's the fuss?”
Reviewed January 20, 2011

It was a hot dog. There was nothing special about it. The toppings were pretty good. It tasted good and it was served quickly, but geez, it was a hot dog. It's a quirky-looking place, really looks rundown, even from the inside. Definitely no-frills. Tiny restroom. Hot day, no A/C so the air was stifling inside. It wasn't expensive, but it wasn't cheap for, oh, did I mention, just HOT DOGS. Not a bad place to stop if you happen to be passing by, but don't go out of your way. I put "no" for "would you recommend this restaurant to a friend" because I don't think it's worth looking for.
