    Very good. Maybe not as good as the elevated NY reputation. Get the good morning & spicy redneck. In the BLT, the lettuce and tomato overpower the dog. Think Destination Dogs or Bark are better.

    We did all the delicious sober work for you, and ate/ranked all 19 of the dogs they've got on hand, from the corn, to all things bacon-wrapped, to the veggie, just because we had to. Read more

    We ordered a Crif pack, i liked the idea that the hot dog types are randomly chosen, it's exciting. The Tsunami, Jon Jon Deragon, Philly tube steak & the tots were all amazing. Waffle fries were bad.

    This is the place to experiment with your Dog toppings! We’re fans of the jon-jon (cream cheese, scallions & everything bagel seeds) and the spicy red neck (bacon, chili, cole slaw & jalapenos).

    Perfect for those late night munchies. All of their bacon-wrapped deep fried hot dogs are great, but I love the Tsunami, Spicy Redneck, and Jon-Jon Deragon best. Read more on WinstonWanders below!! Read more

    "Get the Jon-Jon Deragon Dog hot dog at Jim Meehan's bar attached to Crif Dog, which comes with cream cheese, scallions, and everything bagel seeds. I wish I’d thought of it!" - Chef Wylie Dufresne Read more

    Best #hotdog in New York. They fry all their dogs and cook them special. Get one loaded up with chili and bacon. Go next door to PDT to get designer dogs from famous chefs (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    New Yorkers love hot dogs, duh. Now you can enjoy unique combinations of ingredients all for under $5. Make sure to try the Good Morning-bacon wrapped dog smothered with melted cheese and a fried egg

    You haven't lived until you've been to Crif Dogs. Minimize the calorie bomb and conquer breakfast AND lunch with the Morning Jersey: a deep-fried frank wrapped in Taylor ham, topped w/ a fried egg.

    My favorite way to eat a hot dog is with sauerkraut, now I have a second favorite---with bacon, Thank you Crif Dogs, Thank you very much!---and your fries are awesome too!

    I love this place, everyone should love this place. If you don't love this place I hate you. I generally go with at least a Good Morning, but have never had anything I didn't like

    Jon-Jon Deragon. Small tots. (2 locations/truck) Then Tony & David Chang enter the hidden entrance to Please Dont Tell bar located next door for a few drinks and more dogs: Momofuku dog. Wiley dog.

    AWESOME dogs! Mostly famed for what's behind the phone booth, this hotdog shop is top dog (forgive the terrible pun). Excellent quality, awesome menu, amazing atmosphere, and delicious!

    TSUNAMI! You can never go wrong at Crif Dogs - wonderful selection but cramped space. But what do you expect when eating a hot dog? Gourmet Dining??? It's worth the trip to the East Village.

    The hot dogs are amazingly delicious here. Definitely a place to go back to and eat especially with a group of friends. Even go on a date, the atmosphere there is great

    They make some of the best hotdogs in the City. You can go basic or try one of their fancy dogs. Can't go wrong but you should consider ordering 2 or 3.

    The Chihuahua and the Spicy Redneck are great. The tater tots are also worth it. Also there is a secret speakeasy entrance in the phonebooth ; ) go in and pick up the phone.

    Amazing alternative for PDT. Once I realized I could be eating a hot dog draped in pepperoni and drinking a miller high life, the need to go to the speakeasy lost it's appeal! Amazeballs!

    SPICY REDNECK. Ask for extra cole slaw, chili, and raw onions. Be prepared to drool like a caveman. Fresh cut waffle cheese fries. Genesee cream ale beer. Glorious meal on St. Marks.

    While there are hot dog staples for traditional hot dogs (Nathans, Papaya Dog, etc.), these are the best gourmet hot dogs in all of New York City.

    Try. Sour Cheese dog with an egg and mustard. I have at least 3 a week:) Also, the staff are amazing; don't forget to tip them. They totally deserve it.

    Zagat rated "The Chihuahua" as one of the top 10 tastiest NYC hot dogs. Get a PBR to wash it down or go through the phone booth to PDT for cocktails!

    The telephone booth entrance to the speak easy is a fun gag. Hot dogs are the best in NYC. oh wait, I dont think they want the speak easy to be public info. oops

    Always get the spicy redneck. It's so good that I devour it in two bites. Crunchy coleslaw and bacon FTW!!!

    Get a hot dog while you wait for PDT, or simply just come for the hot dog, cause it's that delicious!

    Creatively-adorned hot dogs are this late-night spot’s jam. Branch out from the usual ketchup and mustard routine into fried eggs, cream cheese and even Jalapeno peppers.

    veggie dogz, breakfast dogz, cheese sauce, california dogz, tater tots. mix, match, come hungry and get creative, then order thirds. it's a doggie, dog tasty world down here.

    So, word on the street is that the Jon Jon Deragon is best served with hot sauce and bacon. I dare you to order the knuckle sandwich!

    Hot dogs are cool. Secret phone booth entrance to fancy pre-prohibition bar and THEN eating hot dogs is cooler. Please Don't Tell. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    The Good Morning Dog ($5), also pretty tasty as a late night snack, is a hot dog wrapped in bacon and padded with melted cheese and a fried egg. Read more

    Chili dogs are all right, but soda was halfway flat (unforgivable sin), and every counter and tabletop was greasy, with garbage all over the floor. That's "punk rock" though, like vintage Ramones 🎸

    Try the Good Morning Dog - Genius. My favorite one. If you like bacon, fried eggs, cheese & meat in tube form, I challenge anyone not to like this.

    Easily my favorite hot dog spot. Spicy redneck is a staple and the tots never disappoint. PDT is next door (through the phone booth).

    Everyone knows about the great hot dogs here (especially the deep fried dog), but walking through the phone booth is a little hidden gem we love.

    My personal favorites are the spicy redneck, the tsunami, and the morning jersey... The tater tots are awesome, chili cheese fries suck, gross chili.
  • Daniel B.
    The "Lil ma" was my best choice out of the three types. The dog is not that spectacular, but the topping and style makes it good!

    An East Village classic. Deep fried dogs with great condiments. We can't decide between the Temptee (cream cheese and bacon or the Tsunami (bacon-wrapped, teriyaki and pineapple). Read more

    In what is surely Manhattan’s coolest phone booth, you’ll find the only public entrance to PDT…(if you don’t know, we won’t tell.) Just walk into the booth, pick up the phone and press a button Read more

    If you like bacon, order a spicy Redneck and a Chihuahua. The sour cream in the latter compliments the bite and chili in the Redneck.

    I've never been one to secretly love processed cheese but I will dip the hell out of some tater tots in the nacho cheese goo. And I'll eat a deep fried hot dog on the side.

    Try the vegan dog, gloriously split and grilled like a 'regular' dog. I topped mine with sauerkraut, pineapple, and ample mustard, and teamed it with Pommes Frites' fries. Mmm. Junk food heaven.

    An essential food experience. Hot dogs which combine crazy flavours and deviate from the classic ketchup/mustard.

    Just order the Stoner Pack #1 for $10. You get 2 dogs and 1 side and it can be anything. Usually involves a Spicy Redneck, Chihuahua or a Tsunami when I've ordered. Plus, Chili cheese tots FTW.

    Fried, bacon-wrapped hot dogs are a speciality at this oddball wiener joint. (Head through the phone booth to bar PDT in the back.)

    Great place for a first chilli dog, it's a cool joint with a sense of humour.
  • Raphael L.
    The Tater tots are exactly like in high school - but don't quite live up to the hype. The Tsunami dog does. Cool little arcade in the store.
