Talk about a dive... A great dive! No chairs, rolled paper towels, no kidding. But, you will get the best dog or sandwich. Yum

“Great fast food”
Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

You have to wait in line... Worth it. Great lunch, quick food stop. Ok, so you think hot dogs are all the same... Schnapper's are better than good. Grouper sandwiches are good too.

“Great hot dogs and fries!”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

This is one of the places on Sanibel Island where you can get a good low cost meal. The hotdogs have a perfect crunch when you bite into them and are juicy and meaty inside. The fries are hot and made to order. They have lots of other things to eat, but I always end up getting a dog and fries. Mix the hot sauce with the ketchup for an added kick!

“Wasn't impressed”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

Got a hot dog here with some friends. The quality of the hot dog was very cheap, like dollar pack hot dogs you get at walmart. The guy at the register looked miserable, maybe because their was so business at the time. The hot dog is very over priced as well, 6$ with no drink or fries. Their fries were overcooked in the fryer so when we ate it, their was no potato inside and it was all oil when you bit into them. Yea they were crispy but wheres the potato? Was super upset. Maybe their other food selections are good but I'm not impressed because they were known for their hot dogs and they were not great at all.

“really great variety”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Dining on Sanibel Island can be tough on the wallet, so we were delighted to find Schnapper's Hots. Their menu has something for everyone, but the hot dogs are their signature. We enjoyed several items here, and each one was delicious. Hot dogs, wings, hamburgers, fish sandwiches, chicken, pizza, fries. They have it all. Our favorite was the Char-Man of the Board. Condiments are set out so you can add as much or whatever you like. Relish, onions, mustard, catsup. It isn't a huge place, but the staff is very efficient.
We just wish there was a Schnapper's here.
