In town for business and found this place on TA and it seemed to have a lot of charm. We ordered their hot dog special with fries which was great. Their service was very friendly and it has a small town feel. Very nice!

The Famous (aka The Hot Dog Shop) is a hometown favorite in Hanover. Quick, inexpensive meals, and two locations. Try the egg and cheese with everything...yum!

Wether it's a hot dog, hamburger , or and egg sandwich you have to get it with everything! Fries with cheese or chili! A local favorite that I cannot believe Guy Fieri has not visited yet.

This place has the best hot dogs ever. Great cheeseburgers, breakfast sandwiches and fries. It's small and always busy. The onions really make everything taste good. The chili on the digs is an old recipe. It's even good on the breakfast sandwiches.

A longtime establishment that is probably more renowned for its unique menu over anything else. Food is ok but the famous hot dog is a bit tough on the outside for my taste. Easy to get to and plenty of parking. Work a visit at...More

I've had chili dogs in over 30 states. This would rate at the bottom. This chili was only moderately flavorful but the biggest disappointment was the dog itself. Kind of rubbery which apparently how they're mad in PA because their competitor around the corner (Texas...More
