These are good dogs with great and inventive toppings. I recommend the Boston Terrier (yes they all have cute names like that, it's adorable). There's a little seating outside but you can also eat while you walk out to the jetty.

We sat outside in one of the two picnic tables. This is one of the few restaurants in Rockport that is by the water and has outdoor seating. The food is good! The price is nice and the staff is friendly!

The kids and I head to Rockport often in the summer months. This is a hidden gem with hot dogs, hamburgers and refreshing drinks. It is right on the pier with the shops. Clean bathrooms too with is a plus!

With all the seafood and ice cream places here was a welcomed relief. Hot dogs almost any style for a decent price. Even vegan hot dogs.
