Casper's (different than Kasper's with a K) is a Hayward staple. If you live here, you have to eat here at least once. The prices are a bit high and the cleanliness can be a bit lacking at times, but overall a solid hot dog.

Is there a taistier hot dog? Nope! The Hayward Caspers is cute, old school and clean. The price is always right.

I wouldn't have guessed a hot dog joint would still be viable today. OK dogs, not much else to choose from. For the price, I'd rather go to Costco. This is old-school and hope it can survive.

The place is an original Casper's, so the restaurant is old and you sit around the counter like it was originally. If you like nostalgia you'll love this place.

Drove all the way over from Manteca just to get our Caspers fix while in California. Thankfully, this place is still in business. And, all they have are hot dogs. I think one of the things that make Caspers great is the fact that they have older folks working for them. Work ethics are really super. Hot dogs. Can't say... More

I like my dog with just mustard and a ton of kraut! Hot fresh polish dog. It was nice to sit down eat my dog and read the paper. Sometimes I call a head and ask for to go orders

Been eating these dogs since I was 6years old. Lots of imitations but only one original. If I had to choose my last meal, this would be it. The best was Harry's in Oakland.

Get a Cheese Dog, you'll thank yourself for it and you'll want to make a trip there every time you are in the area.

Anyone who knows Hayward knows about Caspers on C Street. Always a great hot dog. Eat there or take it to go. Can't find a better one.
