“Yum Yum Yum!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

Great hot dogs and ice cream. They understand what all the way on a hot dog really means! Friendly, fast service and a great hot dog! Save room for a hand dipped ice cream cone. This is one of Greensboro's hometown traditions! We like Stamey's BBQ and Yum Yum 's hot dogs! The coke in real glass bottles is always a hit with kids too. Long live Yum Yum!

“Fun Place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

This is a college hot dog joint with good ice cream. An institution and a must visit when in Greensboro. Don't expect too much and you'll have a good time.

“A Greensboro Institution”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

Yum Yum's is a Greensboro institution serving ice cream for over 100 years. The appeal of Yum Yum is that it is what it is. and its been that way long before they moved to the current location in 1970. they serve ice cream, hot dogs, soft drinks, bags of chips and Nabs. The decor is, well, unique. and truly vintage. I'm sure they bought everything used way back when. The ice cream is made in the store and is terrific! You can't beat the fresh, locally made ice cream. I love the hot dogs because it's what I grew up on. Steamed buns, bright red Jesse Jones weiners, homemade chili, slaw and onions. Your basic Carolina hot dog. Nothing beats eating a couple hot dogs, drinking a Coke from a bottle, eating a bag of Lay's chips while sitting on the wall outside Yum Yum's. Finishing it off with an ice cream cone is perfect. And it was exactly that way back in 1970.

“THE BEST EVER”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

This is a fixture in the UNCG area of Greensboro. It is a 4th or 5th generation establishment, that has been severing ice cream and hot dogs for over a hundred years. Homemade ice cream that has stood the time of years. They have great flavors, seasonal specials and they free dip, not with a traditional scoop. The value is super, I usually get the small because the large I to big. The hot dogs are very good, homemade chili, steamed buns, super good. Eat hot dogs, grab a cone of ice cream, sit on the brick wall out front and people watch. A great time to be had. ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!
