The year was 1951, perhaps 1952, when I first went to Casper's Hot Dogs on Macdonald Ave. in Richmond. I was a student at Ells Jr. High School and had my first Casper's hot dog. 65 years later I went out of my way to have another since I now live in WA State. Over the years when living in... More

Love their chili cheese dogs and chicken tamales. I wish they still offered milkshakes instead of the slushes.

There is something about the snap in these traditional dogs. Nothing fancy, just good old taste of days gone by hot dogs with all the trimmings. It's a through-back to the 50's. Mostly take out, but you can sit if you get there early.

Best lil hotdog food stand in town... been around for over 40 years... good central location to city hall and other city-based agencies. Very popular place to get a quick bite to eat and get back to work on time. Floor to ceiling windows so you can get a good eye view of the local flare.

I have been going to Casper's in one or another of its locations for 50 years. You can count on the same delicious hot dog and trimmings and the friendly service by mostly older women, bless 'em!.

Accord to my husband and friends this place has been at this place for years and it continues delivering the same quality food and service for several decades now! He and my mother-in-law loves to stop by if in the area! And now, I guess he is passing his love for hot dogs to our three years old daughter! So,... More

Another very disappointed customer left with granddaughter when sent to neighboring McDonald's to get a milkshake. Lots of people EXPECT milkshakes at Casper's, and this doesn't set well with old timers. Plus, having lived on the east coast and getting familiar with Smith hot dogs, Caspers is very good but no longer the best. Will still shop at Caspers, but... More

Living now on the east coast, Caspers is one of those bay area places I miss. Love their hot dogs though I always have them hold the relish. Love the tomato slices, onions and mustard, and one of the best hot dogs there is! Costco members and other stores in the bay area sell Caspers hot dog 1 and 2... More

A return visit to my hometown has to include a Casper's Hot Dog. Located across from the Richmond Civic Center, it has been in the same location for at least 50 years. They only serve Hot Dogs and they are the best I have ever have. Foot Long on a hot steamed bun with everything on them from the usual... More
