I came here with a party of 9 about 5:30 on a Saturday, anticipated the wait, but we were all sat together and our food was incredible. We shared apps and all ordered different dogs. The bone marrow was one of the best I’ve had...More

Usually would eat here maybe every other month, or if a friend was in town would bring them here for something different. They decided to get political with their Stormy Daniels hot dog, last time I will eat here again. There are other nice places...More

Enjoyed dinner with family and friends at this cozy establishment. Our table enjoyed a variety of hot dogs and a few had the falafel taco which was unique and spicy. The mussels were a huge hit, as well as the sides of fries. We tried...More

Overpriced $11 hotdogs (only six choices), 2 sodas and water. $95 bill. And they charge refills for lemonade but not pop and don’t tell you. Not worth the price for hot dogs. Much better elsewhere.

I really wanted to like this place more than I did. Their gluten free options are to get a hot dog without a bun. That's it. My boyfriend got the steak. It wasn't worth the price we paid for it. Lots of gristle and wasn't...More

The earlier review titled "$11 hot dog with no sides" kind of sums it up for me. Pricey for what you get. Could take the concept over the top if they were just a little more generous with the ingredients. The street corn take on...More

I'm writing another review a year later to let folks know that even though you can't make a reservation at Senate AND it is very popular in Over-the-Rhine, I have twice had no problems being seated right away on a Friday evening: once at 6:15-6:30pm...More
