First off, we travel all over Ohio/WV/KY looking for great coneys. We've found some great ones in some crazy places. The LOOK and feel of Retro Dog was perfect (which is why it has two stars). The dog, however, was dry and shriveled. SHRIVELED!! At first we thought my husband had gotten a bad dog, but mine came out the... More

Great Decor, wrong location. However it is the food that does not measure up and is way over priced. It's sad because the wife and I love a good Hot Dog, but they don't cut it. And I have talked with a lot of people who have the same opinion as ours. Wish they could meet our expectations, but the... More

Saw this on TV show New Day Cleveland. Don't believe TV shows. 4 adults had milk shakes, chili dogs and single cheeseburgers, 2 orders of fries. Bill with tip was $40. Would have rather eaten fast food. Ten dollars a person! Horrible coney sauce according to both husband and dad. Had a burnt taste. Milk shakes only reason I'm giving... More

I am not a fan of this type of restaurant to begin with, and I was even less of a fan when I left. First, the food is not good. The milkshakes were mediocre at best. The hot dogs are just not good quality and everything seemed soggy (maybe from the grease). Fries were underwhelming. And, the worst part is... More

Stopped here for quick dinner before going to Blossom. Hamburger was OK, but nothing special. Same with hot dog. I think the sandwiches might be more appealing to people who like lots of toppings.

I absolutely loved the food here, I got the white hot dog and it was great, it's hard to find a dog these days made from beef, pork and veal, but they got em at Retro Dog. The onion rings were outstanding and the chipotle mayo sauce was great. I would recommend this place to all.

I took my family to Retro Dog and we were all underwhelmed by the food. Quality was not good at all. Several parents at our son's school paid to have Retro Dog provide lunch for their class. All children chose their food ahead of time, but Retro Dog didn't bring enough for the whole class--four kids got no lunch that... More

Liked the curb service. Funky place from the outside with about 10 stalls to pull your car in. Hot dogs were really good and there was a pretty big choice of toppings. Their chocolate milk shake was as good as any I have had. Service was quick and the server was very pleasant and cheerful. Not too crowded early in... More

This is like a throwback drive-in restaurant from the 1950s. You get a “car-hop” waiting on you and a tray plunked on your partially rolled up car window. Reminds me of the scene from Chevy Chase’s “Vacation!” Anyhow, they specialize in hot dogs, but there are some other nice options -- even veggie dogs! If you want a beer, though,... More

The milkshakes here are worth going for alone. Add a yummy hotdog and you are set. Food is good and freshly made and the staff is friendly. Clean restaurant, fast service.
