It's not necessarily going to be "Good for You.." but; These dogs taste GOOD!!! Great location on the Independence Square. Plenty to chose from; a slight bit pricey, but worth it if you don't eat here constantly. **Note: there was a little boy in the restaurant playing with a toy caterpillar/backhoe - moving it back and forth on the table...

Family likes this place a lot, but it is very exepensive for well dressed hot dogs. Service can be lacking sometimes.

We ate at Up Dog - enjoyed it thoroughly! So many choices of ways to dress hot dogs (and chicken tenders). My husband had a second! Fast food but not fast food. Enjoy!

The service here is quick and friendly. They only serve hot dogs but the selection is good, the dogs are plump and juicy and one will probably fill you up. It is located in the old downtown part of Independence.

The pictures of hot dogs on their menu will make you crave them. The dogs run about $4 depending on toppings, add fries or tots and a drink for $3. It's clean, has a old fashioned diner feel. And you can grab dessert next door at yogurtini place. And I like the water bowl for dogs they set out. Nice... More

Ate here after visiting the Truman Library. Good dogs, tots and onion rings. We had the bacon chili dog and my kids ate the corn dogs. We were all happy with our choices.

I don't usually eat hot dogs, but I wanted to try this restaurant. The staff was so friendly, and the food was great. Highly recommended.

Granted each dog is freshly grilled, but the woman putting on condiments and serving was the slowest service person I think I have ever seen. We only got basic dogs, not the ones with fancy toppings, and it took a good 15-20 minutes. They were on,y average too.

Great variety of hot dogs and very unique ones. I had the chicago dog that was very good. Prices reasonable, and located right on the corner of the square. Quick service and very tasty.
