    Their hotdogs with chili and mustard are amazing! We had a square of baklava and it was the absolute best baklava I've ever had, I have never had a piece of baklava so full of flavor until just now.

    This hole in the wall has the best hot dogs in town, order them 'burnt' and George will deliver you up crispy perfection. Great chili. Save a little room for pound cake. A Raleigh landmark. A+

    This place was simply stunning. It was like stepping into my grandparents basement and being fed delicious, delicious hotdogs. Free tootsie rolls with your check 👍🏼

    I've seen this place on various lists of must try places to eat in Raleigh. Went by today with excitement. Got a hotdog all the way. It was ok but nothing to write home about. May try it again.

    Discovered the joint on Foursquare. Love hot dogs...excited to try these. It's after 11am and it's not open yet! Called and no one answers.

    Don't be in a hurry & don't ask questions. 1 guy serving 15 at a time... Just say, "give me 2 dogs and a diet (or Coke)" and say "yes" when he offers toppings. And the more burnt the dog, the better.

    Thei hot dogs were awesome!! No wonder they were featured on TV. It's a hole in the wall, but don't let that fool you. Truly good.

    Try the pound cake after you get some dogs- all butter, homemade, really good.

    If you like your dogs crispy on the outside, order them well done. George keeps some on the grill extra time just for that purpose.

    Order a large coke. You get 20 oz for just 50 cents more than the cute 8 oz bottles. Although drinking from the glass is kinda cool. . . .

    Not many places left that feel and are authentic. This is one of them. 2 dogs all the way and a soda.

    Follow in Adam’s footsteps and attempt to beat The Roast Grill’s Hot Dogger Challenge record. As seen on Travel Channel’s Man v. Food Nation.

    If you are getting a "to go" order, call in first. I'm sure George will appreciate it.
