    The hot dogs here are the real deal! The Sonoran dog was great (and authentic!) The order of fries is large and can easily be shared between two people. They also sell deep fried oreos here.

    Girl Meets Food says the Left-Winger is better than your normal veggie dog. The fried falafel "dog" comes topped with tzatziki & avocado and it "snaps" like a hot dog. Also - get the fried pickles. Read more

    AMAZING hot dogs... though I'm admittedly a bit puritanical with my hot dogs, so I haven't quite sampled much of the exceedingly extensive hot dog options; but my friends swear by its full menu.

    With a dogs-only menu comprising everything from the classic pork and beef to falafel and fish versions, we think this spot promises to satisfy all possible varities of canine craving! Read more

    Weekends typically have a house-made dog now. A bit pricier but well worth a try. We're here almost every weekend to try the specials!

    Get the Korean Bulgogi and kimchi dog, Susie got the Falafel dog and fried pickles!! Everything was really good as well as the cheese fries.

    Travis Richardson · November 23, 2011
  • Alaa S.

    Best hot dogs you can get in DC! Pick something different on the menu with every visit. You won't be disappointed!

    I'm not usually a huge fan of vegetarian alternatives, but the California Left-Winger (falafel dog) is delicious!

    Sean Cruz · April 9, 2013
  • Dan H.

    Philly cheese dog is life-changing. Left-winger with a beef dog is also great. And don't miss the fried pickles!

    Dan Hess · March 31, 2011

    You can pay extra and have them add sriracha sauce... or you can add your own. There's a bottle in the condiment area.

    The service today is crappy. Hostess laying her head down while taking your order, unable to answer questions. Still tasty though.

    Scott Eichinger · August 14, 2011
  • Summer J.

    Get a dog on the pretzel roll. Skip the cheese on the frips - it is a processed fake cheese.

    Summer Johnson · May 9, 2011
  • Leandro L.

    Try the Old Fashioned Corn Dog - Brings back so many childhood memories

    Leandro Lagera · July 14, 2012
  • Alicia S.

    Love the Tucson Sonoran-awesome! So different and quick service! A must try!!!

    Alicia Sanders · September 20, 2012
  • Brian G.

    They've apparently changed the menu since they opened. They should change it back.

    Brian Gluckman · September 22, 2012
  • Dan M.

    Try the frips with cheese--they're basically waffle fries and they're delicious.

    Dan Miller · November 13, 2010
  • Eric P.

    So sad to see the Frips leave the menu. But the fried pickles are great!!

    Eric Peterson · March 9, 2012

    Ok so I eat here entirely too much, but the hotdogs are off the hook.

    The Ripper was delicious. Hot Smoke lived up to its name.

    RomanceJunkie Ebookaddict · January 10, 2014
  • Tracy T.

    If your bold, try the 3 Alarm Crunch. It's good, but it's an A++ spicy dog. Try to handle it

    Tracy Tran · April 12, 2012
  • Stacey W.

    They sell bacon-wrapped hotdogs. What more does one need to know?

    You have to get the falafel dog, SO good.

    Alex C · December 11, 2011
  • Travis B.

    Try subbing for the all beef angus (pause) its worth it! Oh yeah The West Va.

    Travis Bond · November 20, 2011
  • Patrick M.

    I concur with the other tipsters, definitely try the fried pickles!

    Don't be an ass by cutting in front of others--there's a line for tables after you order.

    Closest thing to real Cincinnati chili in DC

    Jim Faris · August 12, 2014
  • Jelaine P.

    Get the bulgogi and kimchee dog! So worth it

    Jelaine Palmer-Lewis · January 22, 2013

    Try the falafel in the California Left Winger. Good stuff.

    Sean Hackbarth · January 5, 2011

    Best hot dogs I've found in DC by a long shot.

    The Rochester White Snappy Griller is a must for up-staters!

    Great Service but overpriced food, so I suggest a "pass"

    Adam Needs · October 1, 2011

    Anything with a pretzel roll rocks!

    Jason Mitchell · November 11, 2010

    The Tucson dog is better than the city its named after
