These dogs have character. This is not gourmet dining but they are good dogs, even better with perogies. I would also go for one of the several sandwiches they have, including cheesesteak. No healthfood here just plain eats.

Between lunch and dinner, need a great hot dog. Service right on target. Great dog with everything and a soft bun. Great fries, and of course wash it down with chocolate milk. All visitors should give it a try.

Growing up in the area, a trip to Yocco's was always a treat. No matter which location it was always something my family, friends and I enjoyed. A typical order for me was, and is, three dogs with everything including onions and an order of pierogies. Occasionally I'd get a cheesesteak instead. And never regretted that either. Recently I was... More

I remember as a kid it was a big treat to get a Yocco's hot dog after we picked up the old newspapers bundled along the street which helped us get to summer camp. It is still a treat to eat a Yocco's hot dog...my mouth is watering just typing this review!

They are fast, the price is right if you have a lot of mouths to feed. Everyone who grows up here and moves away has to visit when they are back in town. They are cash only, no plastic (they may take checks)

A old family recipe, specialty made of fine ingredients, made only for their hot dogs. Lightly grilled to perfection on a warm bun with mustard and chili. Or have it anyway you want it. Great fries, too! Great family folks behind the counter, over 15 years of catering to their customers. A must experience for those who enjoy life and... More

This place never will go out of style. Great Hot dogs, cheese steaks, pierogies, and real Birch Beer! We like to come here for a quick lunch now and then. the prices are reasonable. You shouldn't be on a diet if you go here.

In terms of locations, Yocco's may be the Hot Dog King, but not, in my opinion, in terms of hot dog deliciousness. When I think of Yocco's, I think of their Cheese Steaks and Pierogies. The dogs are good and better than some, but in the Lehigh Valley, the Hot Dog competition is tough.
