Yoccos is a local favorite and definitely good but not my favorite. We love getting pierogies and chocolate milk though!

I have been coming to Yocco's since I was a kid. I strongly believe that Yocco's serves the best hot dogs in the Lehigh Valley, and possibly anywhere else. Yocco's hot dogs are one true regional food staple that you cannot find anywhere else. They put chili sauce, onions, and mustard on a typical Yocco's dog. It sounds literally unbelievable... More

Devotees don't really need a review, and Yocco's certainly has its devotees. It's a throwback place, I get that. However the food is really not that good. To me, the hotdogs taste burned and the rolls are gooey like Wonder Bread. If you like kitschy, go for it. If you just want good a hotdog, the local chain Potts is... More

Good hot dogs and onion rings It is a decent place for hotdogs. The restaurant seems to be clean and their staff courteous. They offer hamburgers.

We know that this place is loved by many locales but we just did not enjoy these hotdogs and won't go back. I could not finish mine. My husband didn't find them to be anything special. The kids didn't want seconds. We like the Sabretts hot dogs better from the stand in Easton during the summer.

The grilled hot dogs with the chili, onions and mustard (the standard flag ship dog) is one every hot dog lover MUST have tried once in a lifetime....

On my time off between school bus runs i would frequent the Downs, right down the street from Yoccos. It was a quick and inexpensive lunch, nothing spectacular.

My family is from the Lehigh Valley (for those who don't know, the Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton region of PA), and so I've been coming to Yocco's since I was a kid. You literally cannot find hot dogs like these outside of this region. Yocco's puts a small amount of a salty chili sauce, diced raw onions, and little mustard on... More

Their chili sauce for the hotdogs is unique and the best of any I have tasted. I also get the steak sandwich which is very good as well.

This placed served some shriveled things that they called hot dogs. I still am not sure what I ate. I should have asked for an MSDS sheet.
