“Authentic”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

Great drive in / small restaurant. Good wieners and the chilli on top is great. Don't miss it if you're in town. Nice staff too. Great value.

“Chili dogs!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

I love eating at places like this, small on space and big on character! Excellent chili dogs! Beware, the chili has some bite to it.

“Unique place!”
Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

I wanted to go hear as I read about it online. When we pulled in, my husband was a little skeptical! I told him to hold right! Everything was great! We had a great waitress, food was priced just right and delicious! My son got his first footlong hot dog and ate it all! Many people stopped on the street to take a picture if the place since it is associated with Breaking Bad. We opted have our food served to us in the car, but I heard you can go in and sit. Definitely, glad we tried it while visiting!

“The "hype" is justified”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

We were just passing through Albuquerque but had been advised that the Dog House was not to be missed. Small, sketchy place in a run-down part of downtown, but the service was friendly and the food was cheap but absolutely delicious. The chili-cheese footlong was perfect. Spicy, delicious chili, soft bun, and perfectly-cooked dog. My wife, who is not a fast-food person at all, actually wanted to go back the next morning for breakfast. Anyway, if we're anywhere close again, we will Definitely go out of our way to get another Dog House chili-cheese footlong.

“Different! Glad I went!”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

So...picture this: small, dumpy-looking dive in the middle of Albuquerque. Dog neon sign above the restaurant. Simple menu, not much to choose from. CASH ONLY. Take your order at your vehicle and bring it out to you.
Had the footlong chili cheese dog and it was very good. Messy! Great chili though, and the side of fries were very good as well. Recommend!
