Best hot dogs in on the north shore. Dogs can be ordered steamed or grilled and they have a wide assortments of toppings. Make sure I plan my trip to pass through Swampscott around noon when on my way to visit my son and the grandchildren.

One girl who looked like she was in charge asked who took the order and I pointed to the girl who... More

We love Popos - their hot dogs and soft serve ice cream (esp the hot fudge sundae) are super yummy and prices are reasonable. The staff is friendly and fast and prices are pretty reasonable. The tables could be cleaner at times but other than that, its great!

This seasonal gourmet hotdog and amazing ice cream place is the best. Hot dogs were crunchy and there were too many toppings to list. Try the chili dog! I also had a huge brownie Sunday with soft serve chocolate ice cream..best I've ever tasted....

I love a good hot dog and they have them here. Many toppings and dogs with many names. Chili cheese dog is one on my favorites. I don't go a lot because it's expensive for a hot dog, but a nice treat now and then. I like the original owner better. He and his wife worked hard on getting things... More
