“yummy hot dog and unusual style”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We stayed at the Virginia hotel right across from this place. There was a line everyday as we walked past going to the beach. On our next to last day there was no line I was the first person and I just had to try a hot dog. The menu is full of a variety of dogs and toppings. Best to read it prior or pick up the hand held. I just had to try the dog with mashed potatoes and sauerkraut. there are many items with mashed potatoes in many ways here on the menu. Lots of signature dogs. Also items good for vegetarians. There are salads, "stuff in a cup",sloppy joes etc. This was a hole in a wall, a small stand tucked on the sidewalk of Jackson St. You have no dining area but most people are going to take their chow to the beach. I did. I enjoyed a real summer treat. No wonder the lines. Tommy was there with his hot dog hat on. If you stay at the Virginia Hotel you should enjoy a beach lunch here. Turnover day Saturday had smaller lines at lunch. open 11 to 6. Sodas water lemonade too for beach. Hot dogs between $1.85 to $ 4.25. sides of cole slaw ,.70 to $1.60.

“Crazy lil place - the line is always long so it says alot”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

The owner seems to be there every time we go. Nice guy. Cash only and the dogs are top notch. We always meet super nice people in line - a real treat. this place is a walk up store front with no tables of any kind. The dogs are tasty and there and quite a few variations of condiments. A must go if you like hot dogs

“Perfect”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Quick, great quality and affordable price. Line goes quick but worth it and the dogs are a different quality of meat. Be prepared to order when you get to the counter.

“Worth the wait!”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Yes, you'll stand in line for a minimum of 30 minutes, but it will be worth it. Delicious dogs in two sizes, fresh toppings, and other eats if you're not in the mood for a dog... although, you might be in the wrong line if you're not. The Reuben dog and the chili and cheese dogs are awesome, as are most of the other gourmet dogs.

Note to Tommy: If you could bring on more help and keep your line moving quickly, you'd be a very wealthy man. Otherwise, great job!

“Massive line up is for a reason”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

They really try to please you at this hole in the wall. The line was huge but moved quite quickly. I picked up the food for my family who were sitting at the beach. When I got back to he beach, I realized that they had given us someone else's order. It was too late and too far to go back, so we basicallyy just chowed down. Still very good
