Has the look and feel of a diner right out of the 50's. The first trip in the place was very busy and a little understaffed. We had to wait for a bit to get our order but it wasn't unreasonable. There is a wide...More

Super cute old school diner style...you can sit at the counter or booths. The dogs are sooo good and there's many options. I've been back many times!

Family likes this place a lot, but it is very exepensive for well dressed hot dogs. Service can be lacking sometimes.

We ate at Up Dog - enjoyed it thoroughly! So many choices of ways to dress hot dogs (and chicken tenders). My husband had a second! Fast food but not fast food. Enjoy!

The service here is quick and friendly. They only serve hot dogs but the selection is good, the dogs are plump and juicy and one will probably fill you up. It is located in the old downtown part of Independence.

The pictures of hot dogs on their menu will make you crave them. The dogs run about $4 depending on toppings, add fries or tots and a drink for $3. It's clean, has a old fashioned diner feel. And you can grab dessert next door...More
