The best hot dogs I have ever had! The bun is what did it for me. If you aren't from the area, lots of "Ipswich" pops to choose from and save the bottle. Highly recommend!

We enjoyed our hot dogs. They have plenty of variety. The prices were inexpensive. The staff was friendly, and it's always fun to have a bottle of pop. The charge the same for a bottle $1.95 as a lot of places charge for fountain.

Stopped by on the way to a Salem walking tour. Fast service by the friendly owner. Kids meal is $2.95 and includes a dog, chips and a drink! Can't beat that! Buns were fresh and delicious... a good bet in Salem!

Nice place and good prices. Great selection of dogs to choose from even vegetarian ones if that is your thing. I had the Saturday Night Dog that has New England baked beans on it. Brought back memories of my childhood.

We make awesome hot dogs! We have all the fantastic standards, Chicago Dog, NYC Dog, Boston Club Dog, but we also have newer additions to the menu. Wisconsin Mac & Cheese Dog, delicious soups, and specialty sandwiches such as Pastrami will make your mouth water. Not limited to carnivores, there are 7 vegetarian dogs as well. Top it off with North End challenging cannoli and you have all the makings of a great stop on your visit to Salem.
