I thought the food was pretty good. I was disappointed with the staff. They were unfriendly and were complaining and cussing.

Wonderful tasting, quick service and a friendly smile, everything you could ask for in a hot dog stop. Lots of varieties of toppings, we had the california, chicago, boston, and a chilli cheese dog, my picky son had Mac and cheese. I would totally recommend if you are looking for,a quick hot dog!

Very good dog, I loved the bun and any option you'd reasonably ever want on a dog. The woman behind the counter was just a likeable woman. I'd go back

Good place to grab a bite. There is a great choice of hot dogs for a reasonable price. You can also have the option of "building" your own. The ingredients seemed fresh and were really tasty. You paid when you have finished eating at the place. Really good service! I recommend it!

The reason I was drawn to this place was the vegetarian dog options. You can get any of their specialty dogs with a veggie dog, or try one of the many flavored veggie dogs. I hardly knew where to begin! I'm not used to so much selection as a vegetarian! I got the Salem Trolley Dog veggie style (lettuce, tomato,... More

I am not a fan of hot dogs, but my husband considers himself an expert. He had a Chicago Dog. Being from Chicago, and having had dogs from hundreds of city Hot Dog Stands, he knows a good Chloe dog when he tastes it. Boston Hot Dog Co passed his test with flying colors! Very unusual!! SO I am rating... More

We make awesome hot dogs! We have all the fantastic standards, Chicago Dog, NYC Dog, Boston Club Dog, but we also have newer additions to the menu. Wisconsin Mac & Cheese Dog, delicious soups, and specialty sandwiches such as Pastrami will make your mouth water. Not limited to carnivores, there are 7 vegetarian dogs as well.

Top it off with North End challenging cannoli and you have all the makings of a great stop on your visit to Salem.
