“The best hotdogs ANYWHERE!”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Yesterdog doesn't look like the fanciest place in town but the staff will definitely make you feel welcome and the hotdogs will make sure you return! Mouth watering, messy and loaded with great toppings. Make sure you have cash because that is all they take!

“Welcome to GR”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Is it something in the water, the air, the hot dog pots, the historical location, the building's particular gravitational pull/magnetic field, the feng shui of the booths and artifact-lined walls, the karma of the many customers over the decades? Who cares. These are the best hotdogs in town, and they're messy enough to put everyone on a level eating field, from the greediest slob to the most fastidious, meticulously groomed professional. It helps to be able to say what you want right away, and not make the staff wait for your order, which will be delivered with astonishing swiftness. (Not sure what you want? Go with a Cheddar or Ultradog; you won't be sorry.) Use the generous supply of napkins, go home and wash your face and hands, brush your teeth, but tangible evidence of your Yesterdog will stay with you for at least 24 hours. What a value.

“Yesterdog is unique in both food and location...”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Some like 'em sloppy, others neat and tidy. Yesterdog has them all. Seemingly quality dogs and an overwhelming number of choices of combinations for toppings.

“The best hot dog in the US!!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

I have eaten hotdogs all over the U.S. and the "Ultra Dog" is still the number one hotdog ever. The special chili, shredded cheese and pickles, steamed buns, are second to none. If you are in Grand Rapids it is worth the trip!!

“Great Dogs; interesting interiors”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Great hotdogs...usually eat a few when I go. The interiors are worth a sit down and conversation with friends.
