“If you can't a hot dog you like here...you never will!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

There is every possible topping for their fabulous hot dogs! Of all things, I loved their hot dog bun! You can also get sausages which sound wonderful--on my list to try next time. Highly recommend their milkshakes -- homemade like the good ol' days! This is a MUST STOP for anybody in town -- but get there early as it gets super crowded!

“What a doggone good hotdog!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012

This place doesn't look like much from the outside, but within lies the best hotdogs you have ever tasted. Get the Cosmic Dog with the blue cheese cole slaw and sweet potato mustard. It is just unbelievably good. If you dare, try the loaded fries with your dogs...watch out for those jalapenos...so hot, but so good. There is counter service and you take your food to the small dining area to eat or get it to go. Be warned. This place is popular and there will probably be a line, but it is definitely worth the wait. I will never go to Mount Pleasant without stopping here.

“Excellent hot dogs and locally owned”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012 via mobile

My son, grandson and I recently ate at Jack's Cosmic Dogs in Mt. Pleasant, SC, a local institution for over 20 years. It has 14 different choices of hot dog toppings, plus bratwurst and kielbasa. In addition, they have other sandwiches and even vegetarian choices. Their "claim to fame" is their blue cheese slaw and sweet potato mustard, plus all toppings are made fresh in-house. They also have great fresh cut French fries. Pricing is a little high for a hot dog, but the choices and quality of the food makes it worth it. It's in a small cinder block building, and it's a good idea to get there before normal meal times since a line forms quickly. Not to worry; they take your order quickly and efficiently. Jack's Cosmic Dogs got some national attention when Alton Brown of the Food Network stopped there during research for "Feasting on Asphalt", a journey around the country eating at out of the way places. Alton said "it's the best hot dog I have ever had, ever!" Enough said.
