A long-established restaurant, the Hotdogger is popular with students, residents and tourists alike. Located downtown, service is fast and the quality of the food is very good. Great for a snack or a quick bite to eat, you will be very satisfied.

This tiny, somewhat grungy, little shop (seating inside for two, outside for about four) serves up some AMAZING hot dogs. If it's something not usually served, like chicken linguica, you might have to wait a bit. Always friendly service, sometimes open late, and great food...More

This tiny restaurant cooks up the best dogs anywhere. Lot's of toppings or with just the mustard and sauerkraut, this is a great place to grab a quick and satisfying bite to eat.
