The hot dogs were different in that they were served on a bun that resembled a pretzel bun or a kaiser roll. So instead of the expected soft, warm, steamed bun, we got the roll. Not bad, just not what we expected. The toppings were abundant, which is probably the reason they don't use a steamed hot dog bun. The... More

Reinvented hotdog combos. They use a natural casing Zweigeles red hot hotdog, but it's a commercial product, Looks light it is 8 to a pound. It is not the "Texas" 6 to a pound supermarket product. It's lightly grilled. All buns are fresh cut french bread. Very airy light interior with a crunchy (grilled?) crust. I like the result. The... More

Fun, funky atmosphere. Great variety of hot dog themes. We went with the standard Cincinnati red dog and a build-your-own dog, and they were both good. It's unpretentious and a good value.

A group from work went here for lunch recently. Each of us had a sandwich platter with sides. All food is vibrantly fresh, rolls seem just out of the oven. The prices are rival to a fast food chain, but this is real home cooking.

Coming from the West and lower Midwest, I had never heard of a "garbage plate" before. Consequently, I was determined to try one. After asking a few locals for recommendations, I came to Dogtown. It looked like many others had the same idea because the place was full of happy diners sitting inside and outside eating a variety of the... More

I gave this a four star due to it is hot dogs. But the selections they have are excellent. The food is fresh and hot. The staff was great. Would recommend trying if you love hot dogs.

We had a family visit to Rochester. While looking for a lunch spot for vegetarians, vegans, AND regular old meat eaters we ran across Dogtown. There was something for everyone including all beef hot dogs for those that didn't eat pork. Everyone in our party of 8 found something to enjoy. Their menu and possible selections looked endless and very... More

I've had some really crappy veggie dogs before so I'm usually not impressed. Decided to try the veggie dogs here and they were pretty good. The portion sides are big and the food is good. I would definitely go there again

Stopped by at what we thought would be an off-hour last Saturday only to find the place jammed. The dogs were served perfectly cooked and we enjoyed beverages from Johnny Ryan's, a local favorite. Sit on the patio for any length of time and pretty soon you'll observe every shred of human debris going by.

I wanted a garbage plate before leaving Rochester but didn't have time to go to the home of the original. I had the garbage plate here and I enjoyed it. I can't compare it to others. My family had dogs, onion rings, fries, italian sausages and a grilled cheese. Everyone liked their food but couldn't finish it all. They thought... More
