So it has been many moons since I have stepped into a Spikes (how long? Club Hell was open, that's how long ago) and wanted to share the joy of this fine establishment with the wife. Of course, we decided on the Warwick location instead because it was near the hotel we are staying at. Having gotten out the last... More

Wide selection of toppings with fresh buns. Worth the trip for a Hot Dog. Kids love it they try something different each time.

Love the variety of dogs here! They are definitely bigger hot dogs compared to what you will normally find but delicious! They are definitely filling! The inside of the restaurant looks better than it used to! Good customer service! I sometimes call in my order to have my food to go to avoid waiting.

Very unassuming place from the outside but the hot dogs were flippen amazing. You can definitely taste the difference between frozen hot dogs that sit around all day and those made fresh. Try the junkyard dog, you won't be disappointed.

I like a dog with krout and mustard but this place has so many different styles of dogs that you have to really think of what you want. A great dog which is made for them and is all beef goes great with a special bun that they also have made for them. Great toppings or they have a bar... More

Awesome buns, curly fries and wings! I had the teriyaki dog...although I had asked for a German Shepard, but the teriyaki dog was good anyways. The kids love it too!

I was brought to Spike's by a local, and I was hooked! Spike's revolves around their specialty hot dogs. I got the cheesy buffalo dog, and I was in heaven. I'm not typically a hot dog fan, but the combination of fluffy (yet stable) bun, flavorful hot dog, and perfect amount of toppings was great. One Spike's dog was plenty... More

My husband grew up in Warwick, so when we were in town we had to stop by his old haunt. This place is as delish and creative as he remembered and is as good if not better than the Boston Spike's. I've tried a TON of the dogs before and none of them disappoint!

My son loves the dogs here and so do I. The dogs are all beef on a sourdough bun and you can customize it how you want. I love rubens so I always order the ruben dog.

Any time I work in Warwick I have to have a couple Spike dogs. A good size all beef dog on a good roll with a large variety of options. I always get 2 dogs with RI relish and their "freakin hot" hot sauce. Excellent combination.

Thank Sknahs1
