A must stop for the best hot dogs around. Gary's Best steams the dogs for that perfect flavor. Always great, no matter how you eat them.

Great place for delicious steamed hot dogs....my favorite ate with celery salt, ketchup and cheese. My son loves those also, my husband loves the works. Very reasonably priced and a great quick lunch.

My grandson loves the rodeo dogs. I like the cheese dogs as well as the pizza dogs. They are located up the street from me so it's easy to grab a hot dog when in the mood. They also have outdoor seating.

I remember going to Gary's when it first opened. I think you could get a dog for a quarter then. 30+ years later and you can still get a dog for less than a dollar. And it doesn't get much better than a Gary's dog with the works - mustard, relish, onions, and do say yes when they ask about... More

Best steamed hot dogs in town! Large variety of toppings and many sandwiches to choose from. I wish they would move to Tallahassee, Fl

If more people reviewed Gary's, they'd be #1 on the top food places in New Bedford. Anybody who is from New Bedford knows of Gary's and has eaten there more times than they can count. Simple Fast Cheap Delicious Stop by to get some food and you will not regret it!

Picnic benches in the back and a take out menu only. This is a small place, but has hot dogs, crab salad sandwiches, pork butt sandwiches and more. The prices are great and food good. There is usually a line, but service is very fast. We enjoyed this stop for a quick bite on a beautiful spring day.

I have no idea why they are so much better than anywhere else,,, but they are. Hands down the best hot dogs you'll ever eat. No wonder it's always busy here, they know what they are doing
