Triple Amazing!!! Amazing, amazing, amazing!) Located in the heart of Ridgefield's downtown, Chez Lenard is a must visit. This hot dog cart is featured in 1000 Places to See Before You Die.

“Best Hot Dog around!!”
Reviewed December 9, 2010

I can see why it was Martha Stewart's favorite. We also had Chez Lenard for my daughter’s party and it was a huge hit. I would recommend to all!!

“Overrated and unexceptional”
Reviewed October 7, 2010

This has to be one of the most hyped yet over-rated spots in Connecticut. The original Leonard may well have provided good service and great tasting products but the current vendor does not. The dogs are watery and not in the same class as you would get in Manhattan for half the price. The toppings offered are varied but unexceptional. The prices are high and the overall experience is of disappointment. The vendor does not speak French either which is somewhat surprising. It is like the Emperor's new clothes; nobody wants to admit the truth.

“Outdoor sidewalk hotdog wagon with fancy hot dog "fixings" options and cute name”
Reviewed December 5, 2009

In terns of restaurant ratings, any outdoor mobile hot dog stand should logically at best be rated 2 on a scale of 1 to 5. However, in this case possibly the combination of a creative set of fixings options combined with cheerful insouciance merit a bump up to 3. The atmosphere is a sidewalk on Ridgefield's main shopping venue. The wagon is brgithly and tastefully painted and spotlessly clean. Serves only hot dogs and a selection of soft drinks from a cooler. The hot dogs in themselves are good as hot dogs go, prices are reasonable for an outside cart stand, and the many options make this an interesting, low-cost appetite quick fix option for sidewalk shoppers in Ridgefield. Not worth a special trip. Hot dog menu can be found at www.chezlenard.com
