Yes. Stop in for a reminder of how much simpler things used to be - cash only - dogs and drinks only - family owned. Nice escape from modernity.

Went to this restaurant on Taste of Carolina and so glad we did. Such fun and honestly the best weiner I have had. Loved everything about this place!

The ambience and food was better than anticipated! Now wonder why it took us 48 years to drive downtown to experience sitting on a barstool, ordering hot dogs all the way---NC style with mustard, cole slaw, onions and chili---, bottle Coke, and baklava. No frills,...More

Roast Grill is in a cozy little spot downtown Raleigh. You know what to expect when you go: NO KETCHUP, limited menu, hot dogs cooked the right way, and drinks. Dining area is small, turnover is quick, and the decorations are fantastic! Always a treat...More

Quirky joint. Good dogs and nothing else. No ketchup allowed. Cramped inside, often with lines out the door. Worth checking out...

The menu is not large. Hot Dogs, Drinks, Chips, Cake, and Baklava. All of which are good. NO KETCHUP ALLOWED!

Without a doubt, the best hot dog I have ever had. "Burnt with mustard and chili" is absolute heaven. I go to Raleigh at least 2x a year, and Roast Grill is always my first stop. Love the dogs and love the owner, George!!!

To be fair, I did not actually visit the Roast Grill. A co-worker of mine went there on his lunch break and brought back 20 something hot dogs for a bunch of us. Hot dogs were tasty and had really good toppings. Chili was delicious....More

A waste of 47 years of my life I say ! I've been missing out on the best hotdogs ... That are served here ! Could very well be the best in the world ! Big call but surely better than the Sydney Zoo 😀...More
