Greasy spoon type of place but you won't leave hungry for less than $10.00. Greek burger is superb. If your in Watervliet you must try this place.

Hot dogs are great but Charlies are still a notch above gus's. The place just looks dirty and piles of pre-cooked burgers and sausage just don't look at all healthy.

Outside of making your own hot dogs, this place is the best place to get hot dogs in Watervliet. They are tasty and this is a well-known and respected place in this small city. Once you have Gus's you'll think Hot Dog Charlies is second-rate!

I've been coming here, ever since I was a child. The Hot Dogs with "The Works", is always a treat. Open year round, so, if you're in a hot dog mood, this is the place to visit.

Been here dozens of times over the years and it never misses a beat. Dogs are great, cheap and filling. On par with famous lunch in Troy so you can't make a bad decision either way. Long lines outside are common and you better know...More

Great hot dogs but you cannot beat the Greek burger. You can get a seat inside but unlikely during the lunch rush........during the warmer months there is seating outside. I cannot say enough about the little hot dogs, so good!

What can you say about a business that's been around for over 50 years that hasn't already been said. Family owned and operated Gus's is just plain great. Whether its the mini dogs smothered in mustard onion and sauce, a hamburger, the Greek Burger, or...More
