“It's not just hot dogs,,,,”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Although they serve the best hotdogs in the world, and the most awesome home made french fries, their Chicken Salad Sandwich is incredible. This is the best restaurant in Mentor and is a not to be missed dining experience. The owners are the nicest people we have met, and the mural on the wall is great. We used to live near Mentor, but have moved. It is worth the four hour drive one way to make a day trip to go up and enjoy lunch.

“Best dawgs, ever”
Reviewed August 21, 2012 via mobile

Have been to Scooter's many times for lunch & dinner. Excellent dawgs & burgers. Extensive menu for every which way you'd want your dawg. Piled high & crispy golden brown, a junior order of fries alone would make a meal for the average person. Ice cream specials are original & inviting. Busy place & for a good reason. Stop by! You won't be disappointed!!!

“Food made fresh and worth the wait!”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Scooter's is such a good example of an all-american summertime fun place to eat! The restaurant is small and it was pretty packed full of hungry people waiting for their burgers and "dawgs". We were starving when we arrived and each ordered a footlong and shared a SMALL fry...small is not the word for this by the way! I was impressed by the friendly manner of the owner and how hard everyone was working to get the orders out. The menu has a lot of choices and I recommend looking at it online before you go in so you don't hold up the line. Very fair prices as well! You may also want to bring a bib or a change of clothes! ;)

“Great Dogs and a MUST STOP!”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

I travel to Mentor for work quite a bit. The one place for me that is a must eat is Scooter's! The small ice cream and hot dog place has some great food and service. There is a wide variety of dogs here. I think I've tried them all or close to it. CAUTION with the fries. They are freshly cut potatoes, quite good and the orders are HUGE! The order in the picture is the smallest - a junior fry. They are only open during spring, summer, and fall.

“Must Stop Here!!!!!”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

If you are going or coming from Mentor Headlands Beach, you must stop here. Do not be fooled by the small location, the food here is incredible. From the dawgs to the french fries to the ice cream.......it is all GREAT!
