Rumor is they failed their heath inspection and closed.it had been an old building when they opened years ago. The building has since been torn down and replaced by "The Cookout" another dog stand but not nearly as good as the food at the Dog House used to be.

this was truly an unusual place- pretty great dogs, but only drive up. it was cheap, had good food, had been in Hampton for years and years, the traffic used to line up down mercury at noon and dinnertime. the replacement dog place is no where near as cool

This is a great place to stop for lunch or pickup to go. They have a place where you can park and sit on a park bench and table to enjoy your lunch on the outdoor.

I love little Mom and Pop type places. I work nearby and have visited countless times. Great prices and fast service. Food is yummy. My favorite is the large BBQ with slaw which is only $3. Fries are only 1.50 and are seasoned well and yummy crinkle kind. You can also ask for more seasoning. Tried the sausage last week... More

If you've ever been to a Wienerschnitzel, this place is very similar. The fries were super hot and fresh, the hot dog was good and hot too. The service was fast and friendly. If you're looking for gourmet hot dogs grilled by a five star chef, this is not the place. But if you're looking for a good hot dog,... More

Late yesterday afternoon I drove past the Dog House and liked the look of the 1960 style building and the name which left no doubt about what they served. My mouth started watering with the thought of a delicious early evening snack so I braved the rush hour traffic to get turned around on the busy 6 lane road to... More

I've only had the chili cheese dogs and fries but they are good. Probably the best dogs I have had in Hampton since the original DerWeinersnitzel years ago. Service is drive-thru and fast. Fries come in a huge bag, a real plus for a fry lover like me. They have an extensive menu and specials everyday but I can't tear... More
