We were just in Salem for a short lunch stop and was glad to have found this small specialty hot dog shop for a quick bite. As can be seen in one of the posted photos the choice was overwhelming but what we decided on was delectable - hot dogs still not a staple in Australia. Convenient also to be... More

No, seriously. This is by far the best hot dog restaurant I've ever been to. The service was great, the food was phenomenal, the price was perfect, and I wish we had one in Texas. If you're visiting Salem and want to grab lunch, go here! You won't regret it.

Read about this place on TripAdvisor & wanted to try it out on our day trip from Boston. As my partner is a vegetarian, it was nice to see a selection of vege hot dogs on the menu. We weren't disappointed with our hot dogs & also enjoyed the Boston baked beans! Would definitely go back again.

Popped in for a quick bite to hold us over until a sit down lunch but one hotdog quickly lead to two and we left full. They have a huge selection of unique hotdogs and a few side dishes like beans or Mac and cheese. The staff were super friendly and gave recommendations. It was quick and well priced.

I'm not a big hot dog fan. Honestly, if it wasn't for my husband I would probably only eat hot dogs once a year, with that being said, I gave in and went to the Boston Hot Dog Company. I ordered the Thai Hot Dog. Oh, my, God, it was so good. I didn't expect Thai peanut sauce and sautéed... More

You think it they have that topping for ur dog. Nice flavor & not cheap on the toppings. Staff is very nice w/smiles. Very clean as well. So stop in for a quick bite & leave full.

I thought the food was pretty good. I was disappointed with the staff. They were unfriendly and were complaining and cussing.

Wonderful tasting, quick service and a friendly smile, everything you could ask for in a hot dog stop. Lots of varieties of toppings, we had the california, chicago, boston, and a chilli cheese dog, my picky son had Mac and cheese. I would totally recommend if you are looking for,a quick hot dog!

Very good dog, I loved the bun and any option you'd reasonably ever want on a dog. The woman behind the counter was just a likeable woman. I'd go back

We make awesome hot dogs! We have all the fantastic standards, Chicago Dog, NYC Dog, Boston Club Dog, but we also have newer additions to the menu. Wisconsin Mac & Cheese Dog, delicious soups, and specialty sandwiches such as Pastrami will make your mouth water. Not limited to carnivores, there are 7 vegetarian dogs as well.

Top it off with North End challenging cannoli and you have all the makings of a great stop on your visit to Salem.
