Consistent food and service. The Hot Dogs and Fries are the best choices. They offer more than that but I'd stick to what they do best. They often offer specials which make it even a better deal.

“Fast Food”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Maybe it's our own fault in that we want to a place called "Mr. Hot Dog", and ordered cheeseburgers........

In any case, this no-frills, stand-alone restaurant had potential when we drove by looking for a quick bite to eat. I had a craving for a cheeseburger, and thought that a local spot like this might be a "diamond in the rough" with a good burger. Both my wife and I ordered a cheeseburger and fries to go.

The fries themselves were very good, and were of plentiful serving sizes. The burgers themselves didn't taste bad...I just thought they were "ho-hum", maybe a step above a fast-food burger, and relatively small size (maybe I should have tried the burger with three patties!).

On the plus side, this place was very inexpensive, and when boiled down to it, this does represent a cheap meal. From a burger standpoint, just don't expect anything out of this world. Maybe I need to go back and try a hot dog......

“The Bay City Coney”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Not a Flint or Detroit coney, Mr. Hot Dog features the Bay City version of the coney dog. Also has steak sandwiches, grilled ham and cheese, and hamburgers, along with fish, shrimp and chicken dinners. The French fries are great - they remind me of what McDonald's used to be, but better. The homemade rice pudding is excellent. This is a cash only establishment, so leave your plastic in your pocket and enjoy an inexpensive Bay City original!

“A Bay City Tradition”
Reviewed September 14, 2011

Great food. Great prices. Simple, no frills restaurant with plenty of classic, american offerings. Their signature food is their coney dogs, but they also offer a steak (patty) sandwich, hot ham and cheese, cheeseburgers, fried chicken, fish and more. Grew up eating at this place and have always enjoyed it. I usually go for the coney dogs and hot ham&cheese. It might not be the most mind blowing coney and food experience you've ever had, but its about the only place to go for this type of food around the area.
