You must try their coney sauce. It is definitely unusual. Corn is mixed in with the sauce and the buns are grilled. I highly recommend it.

These are good dogs with great and inventive toppings. I recommend the Boston Terrier (yes they all have cute names like that, it's adorable). There's a little seating outside but you can also eat while you walk out to the jetty.

Great hot dogs, most named after dog breeds. The place is small but reasonable space given the location. Staff was super friendly, it was clean and great for a quick bite.

We sat outside in one of the two picnic tables. This is one of the few restaurants in Rockport that is by the water and has outdoor seating. The food is good! The price is nice and the staff is friendly!

The kids and I head to Rockport often in the summer months. This is a hidden gem with hot dogs, hamburgers and refreshing drinks. It is right on the pier with the shops. Clean bathrooms too with is a plus!

Seating a little tight but food and atmosphere was good. Maybe the best substance on TheNeck. Others around are more seafood focused.
