A friend suggested we go there the next time we were in Charleston. We did today and it was the messiest, most phenomenal dog and fries we ever had. We sat in front of a card signed by Alton Brown and numerous articles about this fabulous place. It's on our list to go back a lot

This is a small place but their food packs big flavor! I got the cosmic dog and it was amazing. Their french fries are very tasty too. Great eats!

The place is super cool looking and very friendly service. The food just wasn't anything special. I'd like to know what kind of hot dogs they're using because they tasted kinda bland.

We were traveling between Charleston and Myrtle Beach when we passed Jack's Cosmic Dogs. We remembered that Alton Brown was on the show "Best Thing I Ever Ate" and Alton said that Jack's Cosmic Dog was the "quintessential slaw dog". So we turned around and had to stop in and try one. We were not disappointed with the Cosmic Dog... More

My wife and I were craving hotdogs and happened to find this place in Mt. Pleasant on our way to Charleston. The place is old and nostalgic. The hotdogs are delicious and the blue cheese coleslaw was excellent. The fries were good too. They also have soft serve ice cream. This was the best dogs I've had in a long... More

They had a good selection of hotdogs, and ended up getting one with sauerkraut and spicy mustard. It was OK, didn't feel it was worth the price at all, I think I could have made one at home for 75 cents. The fries were pretty good so that's the only reason it got an average score, otherwise it'd have been... More

We were excited to go to Jack's Cosmic Dogs after reading some of the reviews. Sadly our experience was much different. The manager who took our order wasn't friendly or welcoming and the ridiculous prices were offputting. We ordered malts which are on the menu and were told they only have shakes. My hot dog wasn't even hot. The restaurant... More

Decadently delicious. Dogs are great an all different varieties. Fries are to die for. Shakes are great.

Saw this a few days ago driving by and knew I had to try it. There was great selection of hot dogs and the fries were great. If you like hot dogs and fries, I highly recommend checking this place out. I had the Cosmic dog.

It was like walking into a 1950's diner/soda fountain. The atmosphere was nostalgic and awesome. The food was worthy of food magazine praise. We had multiple hot dogs, a corn dog, and some root beer floats and couldn't get enough. They had old time decor and cute photo ops. I highly recommend.
