“Get your Hot Dogs Here in Carolina Beach (& a Root Beer Float)”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

I love good hot dogs and Island Hots is the place. Clean w good service. They have other options, liked pulled pork & chicken tenders as well. Check out the onion rings.

Choose your hot dog (including vegetarian & vegan) and add on the toppings. They are all tasty and fresh. Feed the kids for $4.75, comes w drink and side.

Outdoor & limited indoor seating (indoor may not be wheelchair accessible).

“Great dogs!”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

Doesn't look like much and indoor seating is limited but the food was good and the staff was friendly. Basic dogs with a variety of "styles" that should make it easy to pick - from your basic Carolina dog to the bacon dog. They have BBQ sandwiches and nachos as well. The fries and onion rings were really good. Quality food for a good price. We will definitely eat here again.
