Monroe Original has the best hot dogs in Monroe, and some of the best I have had anywhere. They have fast to the car service with friendly staff. They have been in business for over fifty plus years.

Monroe's Original Hot Dog stand has been around for as long as I can remember, and it has the best chili sauce of any I have ever tasted. Great, friendly folks and consistent good food (and root beer!) and service. When my son comes to visit from San Francisco, a stop at Monroe's Original Hot Dog is always on his... More

They have the best coney dogs and root beer. Don't expect anything fancy. You drive up, they take your order and almost before you can blink your food is delivered to your car. Anytime we have out of town guests it's the first place they ask to go.

You go here for a great chili dog (or 2 or 3) and an ice cold root beer. It is that simple and it doesn't disappoint. My parents stopped there between their wedding and reception 68 years ago. Many incarnations later, it's still a great quick stop for summer's best.

This is an authentic old school style hot dog drive in, complete with cute little car hops! It seems to stay pretty busy so it can be hard to get a parking spot at times. But the chili dogs are worth the wait!! I have heard they make their own ketchup, which would explain why it's so good. Root beer... More
