“Best Hot Dogs near and far....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

Bob Dogs is one of the best hot dogs near and far. This mom and pop joint can't be missed when you visit Oak Island or Caswell Beach. They even have a bell you can ring to let everyone know you had a good time at their restaurant. If you don't have time to wait then just call in the order and it will be ready when you arrive. They have dining indoors and outside. Again, this can't be missed. Mango Salsa is the best! I think it is called the Island Dog.

“Yearly Visit”

We stopped today our way out of town and was disappointed we had not visited more on our weekly visit. Great hotdogs and hamburgers. Great food period.

“Great hotdogs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014 via mobile

Our group ate here twice during vacation and loved it. We especially liked the island dog and caswell (BLT). Not a big fan of the surf and turf but others seem to like it.

“Simple, but oh so good!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

Bob's Dogs serves THE BEST hot dogs we've ever had; we loved them so much we bought a T-Shirt!! HA!!

The cost was reasonable and, other than it being slow, the service was great. The restaurant is small for the business they get and there were not enough places to sit; they should consider expanding in my opinion, but then that may change the entire feel of Bob's Dogs.

At any rate, we loved it and tell everybody we know who is going to Oak Isalnd "You gotta go to Bob's Dogs, they're the best"!

“Great hotdogs!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014 via mobile

I am a hot dog enthusiast so I had to try this place out. We arrived around lunch time and it was busy but the staff was putting out orders and emptying tables at a nice speed. We ordered the surf and turf dog, alligator dog, and the chili cheese dog. All were very good although I suggest you ask for them to go light on the cocktail sauce as it is a bit overpowering on the flavor but is great in small amounts. The staff was very friendly and fast!!! Prices are affordable. We ate for less than $20 for 3 people.
