My god this place was fantastic! Its a little off the beaten path in New Brunswick, right new the Rutgers Graduate School of Nursing at the location which used to be Doll's. Went here for a lunch with two co-workers and was thoroughly impressed. They have a great and affordable menu with so many fun choices of dogs, sausages, brats,... More

Been here several times for both drinks, dinner, and lunch. Great craft beer selection. Great variety of dogs with different types of meat and a veggie option. Great service. A little pricey.

I came here for lunch with a group of friends one day and was pretty surprised by the menu. They had a vast variety of hot dogs, all attributed to a different country or city in the US. I have to admit that I was intrigued by several of the unique hot dogs on offer and had difficulty picking just... More

It's not JUST a hot dog joint - it's a culianry adventure. Delicious!!! Every dog (or sausage) is named after a domestic or international airport and is created to reflect the prevailing cuisine of those areas. For example, the Charles Dog Gaulle is a duck sausage with duck confit, shaved foie gras and dijon mustard. Or stay "local" with the... More

Only opened seven weeks this spot is around 11th and Walnut. I know I found my new hang out. The choices are limitless if you want to make your own creations. However, the combination suggestions are out of this world! Everything including the sausages and dogs and bread are made in house! That was even more impressive! Great service when... More

This is one of my MOST favorite restaurant to go. The ambiance of the place with old building style inside, great awesome staff that is very friendly and attentive, and food that is unique, fresh, and always great tasting. The beer and unique drink menus are awesome as well. A must try if you are in the area.
