Who would have thought possible the elevation of the quintessentially American hot dog had reached the level of an art form. Well in Downtown Hartford such is, indeed, the case. Nowhere, and I repeat nowhere, will anyone find hot dogs of such quality and variety as are available at Woody's. Other reviewers have offered suggestions as to what choices are... More

Woody's offers a wide variety of combinations and toppings on foot long all beef hot dogs on toasted buns. I had the one with the pulled pork on top and it was delicious. The french fries were thin but good and they do offer Hamburgers

Excellent selection of hot dogs. They have virtually anything you can think of. Was a little concerned to be charged $3 for a Snapple and $5 for a basket of fries. 2 hot dogs, 1 basket of fries and a drink... the bill came out to be $20. These were delicious hot dogs and I will probably be back...but the... More

Are you sure about that $20.00 order that seems even high to me! 2 hotdogs and a fry should only have come to $12.25, a little exaggeration there wasn't it .thank you for that great review . More

This place has so many different ways to make a hot dog, and they all have really cool names like the Deputy Dawg (bbq and onion), or the Dog Father (marinara, peppers and onions). Cool Miami Dolphins theme, this place is cool.

thank you. Our new thing now is if you come up with a cool topping for the dog we will name it after you. More

Although I was born in Connecticut and raised in Massachusetts, it wasn't until I left New England when I saw an episode of Man vs. Food that I was introduced to Woodys. Took my fiance there while we were in town for the Holidays and it was as authentic and eclectic as I imagined. The local greats mounted on the... More

Great food for it being hot dogs. Gourmet dogs is something I never thought of but the toppings they use are great.

The little lady and I spent the day walking around Downtown Hartford. All the walking made us hungry and even though we had planned on going to Woody's, we actually happened to be passing by around the time we were getting hangry. I am not a big hot dog fan and normally I need to be in the mood however,... More

This review has nothing to do with the food. I was visiting Hartford last week and planned to go to Woody's so I checked their website 2 weeks ago to get the hours. Their site indicated they closed at 3:00 everyday, but also indicated there are expanded hours in the summer. Since I was not able to get to downtown... More

I loved this little hot dog shop. The hot dogs were amazing and is a must while traveling through Hartford. The only downside to this place was that it closes at 3pm on weekdays. If you can make it in time, it will be an experience well worth your money. I recommend the Deputy Dog (but so will everyone else).... More

Don't let GPS fool you....No outdoor signage in Downtown Hartford....but if you find it (and hours are short most days)....WOW>.....Get the Deputy Dog to go for the tradition but all the dogs we tried were awesome.....The toppings are the cherry on a great sundae of quality meat and well toasted roll....MUST DO if you are a "dog person"!!!
