“You will never find a dog like this one”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2011

Everyone that lives in Monroe has their favorite hot dog. My whole family loves Monroe's Original. Their chili is one of a kind. I can walk in my house and know when someone has went to Monroe's Original. Makes my mouth water every time. Even though their menu is limited, who goes to a hot dog stand to get a chicken sandwich? I want my hot dogs and root beer. I buy their root beer by the gallon. I'm not even a big fan of root beer, but this stuff is amazing!

“Best Hotdogs on the Planet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2011

I grew up in Monroe and every Saturday Mom took us to Monroe's Original for chili dogs and rootbeer. As a teenager I got a job as a carhop there. It was the best summer ever. To this day, after traveling all over the place, I still haven't found a chili dog that can compare.

“Best Chili Dogs in my 60 Years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2010

Began stopping here in 1957. Although I've lived 500+ miles away for 40 years, I always make a stop when I return. Haven't found chili sauce like this one anywhere. I love it.

Cool little place but not much to choose from, the prices seem a little steep for what you get, no cheese for chili dog thats strange.

“Greatest hot dogs, and drive in in Monroe, maybe even the U.S.!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2010

Monroe's original has the best hot dogs in Monroe. They are legendary. Everyone who has ever been in Monroe knows who they are and where to go to get an awesome hot dog and root beer. Great food, friendly service! You CANNOT just eat one =D
