Whenever I want a quick lunch this is the spot. Like a hotdog with every topping known to man to choose from....and they have stuff for vegetarians which my sisters like and enjoyed very much.

We stopped here on a whim for a snack and we're NOT disappointed. I had the lobster roll; it was delicious. Good price ad friendly service as well.

Though we were underwhelmed with the food, it was a decent spot to grab a bite on our way to the train.

We flew over 2,000 miles to try this place. Worth the trip. Can get your usual boring hot dog, but why? The variety is great and the Boston Club Dog was amazing. Gotta try between the witch tours

Had a delicious hot dog today, could have had just about any topping you can imagine. I chose Mustard, green relish & onion - did not disappoint. Plenty of customers lined up for a great hotdog.

The best hot dogs I have ever had! The bun is what did it for me. If you aren't from the area, lots of "Ipswich" pops to choose from and save the bottle. Highly recommend!

We enjoyed our hot dogs. They have plenty of variety. The prices were inexpensive. The staff was friendly, and it's always fun to have a bottle of pop. The charge the same for a bottle $1.95 as a lot of places charge for fountain.

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.
