“Good Food - Overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

Suprised this place is ranked as highly as it is. Food is good, don't get me wrong, but it's overpriced, even for P-town. My Nor'Easter Lobster Roll was very good, the cook asked me how much mayo and Old Bay I wanted, which was nice. I don't like lobster rolls that have a ton of mayo. I want to taste the lobster! However, it wasn't worth $16!! I've had lobster rolls just as good, with more meat, for substantially less. My girlfriend had a turkey and avocado sandwich, which she said was very good, but I'm not all about spending $9 on a sandwich w/ 4 oz. of meat. I've read their hot dogs are outstanding, but no matter how good they may be, I couldn't bring myself to spend $8-$10 on a hot dog. I can go to the other hot dog joint in P-town and spend $4 on a footlong that is apparently excellent as well.

Overall, they have decent food, but for what it is, it's overpriced. There are better options for dining out for lunch in P-town. I'd suggest Mojo's if you're in the mood for something quick.

“Quality and care shine through”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

You might say to yourself, "how good can a hot dog stand really be?" Lucky Dog shows that care and attention to detail can lift the humblest meal to the sublime. The dogs are thick and juicy and have that satisfying snap when you bite into them. The lobster rolls are spilling over with juicy sweet lobster, and they don't mix in the mayo until you order. They only add as much as you like! The Mac and cheese is velvety and decadent. These are people who give a damn about what they do, and it shows. Amazing place!

“Overpriced, but tasty”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

Like most places in Ptown, the value is a bit dubious. Part of running a seasonal business. But the dogs are quite tasty, with a nice natural casing crunch and good flavor.

“Great dogs!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Went here for lunch on 8/11. Had the dog with onion, cheese and bacon.....awesome!! The cheese was freshly melted (not fake stuff out of a can) and the bacon fresh. Others in my group had the Cape Cod chicken salad.....wow! Delicious and a huge sandwich..... Also had the baked beans made with at least three types of beans (maybe more) and fresh bacon. Great place for lunch or dinner. Only drawback, cash only...credit cards not accepted. Other than that, don't miss it!!!

“Back Again-Still fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

We come back time and time again and this is consistantly a great place. Dogs are awesome, buns soft, topping more than plentiful! The inside and outside areas are spotlessly clean. Staff is kind, owner is ever present and a great guy. We fed 4 under 30 bucks with organic juice and waters. U can't beat it.
