I have recently had to give up most sugar, wheat and dairy, but I can't give up Hap's. A unique hot dog/hamburger place, there is no seating, but the line for their delicious hot dogs and hamburgers often extends halfway up the block. Add cheese for a bit extra charge if you like; all other condiments, including the special chili,... More

Had to wait in line but they have the best hotdogs around. The smell from Hap's will draw you in. You won't be disappointed!

Great fresh burgers the fries & the service is enough to go for, my wife loves the pork-chop sandwich it's good but the burgers are better.

We saw this place last year when we were in town but it closed before we were ready to eat. This time through town our timing was better and we decided to try Hap's. We waited in line 20 to 30 mins. then had to make the major decision of what to try. Once we were close enough to see... More

Its the best hamburgers and hotdogs you can get. Worth the drive or wait in line. The smell will make you buy extra when you get to the counter. Top it off with an ice cold glass bottle Cheerwine and it doesnt get any better.

On South Main Street in Salisbury, NC, there is this little grill that has graced Salisbury since the 1980's. It is a "hole-in-the-wall" niche eatery selling hot dogs and hamburgers, hand over fist, as fast as they can cook them during the limited hours of 11:00 am - 4:00 pm. (They recently changed hours a bit to pick up the... More

Haps is Salisbury Downtown....we always stop in when we are in town. Standing room only (outside), but it is a must do every chance we get to stop in.

You stand in a line out the door, order at the counter, pay cash, eat standing up, and you do it again and again because it's just so darn good!

Since the mid-80's when the original Owner 'Hap' opened this literal hole in the wall standing only dive, the hot dogs coming out of this place are legendary! And the burgers are just as good! It's modeled after Ward's Grill in Whiteville, NC and if you want a little deja vu experience, go visit Ward's after visiting Hap's. Depending on... More

I was given a recommendation to try this place. It is by no means fancy, but it has good food. I absolutely love the battered pork chop sandwich! You can get it "dipped" in sauce or without. I prefer it without but both are delicious!
