Whenever I have the chance to eat at a local hot dog restaurant I always take the opportunity. Some are better than others but the Dog House in Rochester NY is in my top five. Aside from a huge menu and good quality dogs, what sets this place apart is their bun. It is a French baguette grilled and crunchy... More

If you a looking for a quick hotdog this is not the place to go. If, however, you are looking for a fun place to eat that is a Rochester classic, then Dogtown is for you. I met about 10 friends here on Saturday at 7:30, so we sat outside, went in shifts to order and enjoyed conversation while waiting... More

The best hot dogs, as well as veggie dogs come for Dog Town. The best trash plate I have ever had comes from Dog town as well. They have a varied selection of veggie food, and a wealth of choices for meat lovers too. I love their mushroom melt down sandwich and they have a daily meal deal as well... More

Great creative menu - why did it take me so long to stop here? This small shack in the back of a parking lot off Monroe Ave is the best "restaurant" to occupy this spot over the years. I stopped in on a Saturday afternoon and wow was it crowded. I chose their "take" on a Chicago dog which was... More

Stopped in here with a HOT DOG on my brain! Ended up ordering a double cheeseburger plate - called the Junkyard Dog Plate. Very tasty with many options. You can have your plate or dog or burger or sausage the way YOU want it. Very minimal seating so sometimes it will be a little tight - No alcohol here, just... More

Lots of options, including vegetarian. No frills. Service is a bit slow (but the food is cooked fresh so no complaint).

Someone told me to check this place when when visiting RNY so I used my GPS to find it. Wasn't disappointed at all. The hot dogs are incredible and though it seems silly to travel for a hot dog it was amazing. So much variety that it was almost overwhelming. I would definitely come back just to try all the...

Dogtown has the greatest variations of a HotDog ever! Regular , white, vegie, etc. and all named after a breed of dog. Mind you they also have burgers and sides, but the dogs rule!

Slammin hot dogs and more variety than you can handle on a 1st visit. I had a lunch meeting there and by noon the line was out the door for ordering. Great grilled dogs and buns. They're good sized and I got 2 but one would have done. None the less I put them both down :) If you visit... More

Wow what a cool little place, they had some really unique dogs to choose from. They have daily specials and then their standard menu. I can't wait to go back and try some new ones.
