Since my cousin loves hot dogs, I took her and my sister to City Dogs while she was on spring break. I ordered a Philly dog and a Chicago dog. My sister ordered a Chicago dog and the Manhattan sabrett dog. My cousin ordered the Philly dog and the Carolina Dog. Verdict: Best hot dog I have ever had. I... More

No one can turn down a hotdog. Their menu is especially inventive with a number of different hotdog options. We had the chicago dog and a regular chili cheese. They were amazing - the perfect amount of snap to the skin. They also have a bar and lots of side options. Perfect for a quick snack.

City Dogs is our go-to Sunday Brunch restaurant. They're in the VCU/Fan area. They have a simple menu of hot dogs, burgers, and a few other sandwiches. We've tried almost all of their offerings and they're all great. The staff are friendly and know the regulars. They have a bar and several tables inside. There's also outside seating. There's several... More

After taking a canal boat ride and a stroll down the canal walk we were alittle hungry, but with it being around 1:30 we didn't want to eat too big of a lunch to spoil our appetite for dinner. After checking out the menu, we decided that a hot dog would be just about right. I had the Honolulu dog-... More

Our second visit to City Dogs! A cool, laid back place with great Dogs, burgers and other options. Clean shotgun style with a nice little bar, great service. Definitely worth a visit. We will be back!

We were standing on the street corner looking at the menu posted. Several patrons came out and told us it was good. We were joined on the sidewalk by several friends and decided to give it a try! It was absolutely wonderful. The place is very small and the staff were superb!!! We had an assortment of foods and everyone... More

It was good but I'll admit I got a normal dog with chili, nothing crazy. It wasn't the best I've ever had (new York dog or Anaheim stadium dog) it was good.

If you like your hot dogs with a "snap," this is the place to go. Smack in the middle of Shockoe Slip, it's a great place to sit and eat lunch (if you can find a seat) or get it for takeout. No matter what, the staff is friendly, the aura is unpretentious, and the food is great.

These hot dogs are great as is the chili. These are snap dogs with a really nice flavor. I believe these are my favorite dogs, I'm also a big fan of Joey's Hot Dogs too but City Dogs has a bigger dog and certainly is just as tasty.
