Went here while visiting family during Thanksgiving week and it was great!!! The hot dogs are awesome, several different toppings to choose from and the atmosphere is very nostalgic. Would definitely go back when we are in town again.

Go back in history to look at the memorabilia on the walls. The hot dogs are just what you'd expect and you can't get a bad dog if you choose your own toppings. The staff will explain menu items and they are so cheerful and friendly. It was not crowded when we were there at 3:00pm, so I would expect... More

For decades, Yesterdog has been a favorite Grand Rapids eatery for late-night college students and Saturday-lunch grandkids alike. It's a quirky place, where crowds order together and then sort it all out when it's ready. And bring cash. But the dogs are delicious as hot dogs are, and the atmosphere is energetic. It's a landmark I make a point of... More

Admittedly it has been quite some time since having lunch here; there's a reason. We thought the dogs were nothing special and worst of all the place was not clean. Not going back.

The best hotdogs ever! It's unique but take cash because they don't take debit or credit cards. The decor is a throwback to the 50's and before.

Everyone has memories of a food place from their childhood, for GR natives this is it. I'm certain that it is that nostalgia that bring folks back but being a newcomer, I was very shocked to have such bad food at what seems to be the GR joint. These aren't the dogs you are looking for. Menu is simple but... More

This has become East Grand Rapids Iconic food place. My wife is from Chicago and she says really bad things about the meat in the hot dogs......kinda like my Dad who always said hot dogs were made from lips and the other end of the dog...he meant the hole at the other end too.....so if you can get past the,...

This place is full of character and tradition. I've been coming here for 35 years. I've been to many Coney Islands including Lafayette's in Detroit and though they are great in their own regards, this place rocks and is exactly what I need periodically.

Yes, it's a kind of fun place to go with the unique decor, quirky staff and unusual atmosphere. It is not the cleanest eatery around. Most importantly, the hotdogs are not all that great. The buns get smashed and all the toppings are oozing out in the clear plastic wrappers. If you like that sort of thing, you're probably a... More
