The hotdogs are very tasty and come extremely fast. The burgers are also very good. Those are the only two choices on them menu, but it's all you really need. My one complaint is that the hot dogs are really small.

The prices are good but the food (hotdogs & hamburgers) were not that great. We actually left there and went to another hot dog place in waterbury. We can say that we were there and tried the food. The people behind the counter (5/11) were very friendly and quick service.

The place looks like it has not been changed in decades and has tons of 50's stylel New England road trip charm. It is a tough place to review because although they might benefit from some updates, you'd hate to see them lose their signature charm. When it comes to the hotdogs, the flavor is good but the dog is... More

if you're looking for glitz , happy meals or variety - stay away. But if you're looking for quick and homey- serve it with a smile , simple but delectable this place is Nirvana. Hot dogs are the mainstay. They appears to be boiled yet quick roasted, flavor explodes in every bite . Add chips and a fountain drink and... More

Mustard and relish is still very good. I think they are no longer selling Hummel hot dogs. They use to have the Hummel "Blackies" dog and I don't think they using are any longer. The skin is a little tougher that doesn't give a clean break when you eat it and the diameter is a little thinner. Go back to... More

This place is "the real deal" when it comes to hot dogs. They have a local butcher supplier so the taste of the hot dog itself is delicious. They prepare them by grilling them and serving on a toasted roll. They have a special recipe house-made relish which is a secret, and spicy deli mustard. I find that it is... More

Growing up in Waterbury, there are a few things that remind me of my childhood. A few places that have been here for a very long time and some of them are businesses that have stood the test of time and are still thriving today. A few of these childhood memories are the Cross at Holyland, the clock tower at... More

My dad used to bring us here as kids and its still every bit as good as I remember it. The hot dogs here are my favorite anywhere. The hot relish just makes them even better. If you find yourself anywhere near Blackies you owe it to yourself to check it out
