Every kind of hot dog on the menu along with other sandwiches. We went with a southern classic, mustard,chili, slaw and onions. Excellent. Fries wonderful too!

After taking a canal boat ride and a stroll down the canal walk we were alittle hungry, but with it being around 1:30 we didn't want to eat too big of a lunch to spoil our appetite for dinner. After checking out the menu, we decided that a hot dog would be just about right. I had the Honolulu dog-... More

Our second visit to City Dogs! A cool, laid back place with great Dogs, burgers and other options. Clean shotgun style with a nice little bar, great service. Definitely worth a visit. We will be back!

We were standing on the street corner looking at the menu posted. Several patrons came out and told us it was good. We were joined on the sidewalk by several friends and decided to give it a try! It was absolutely wonderful. The place is very small and the staff were superb!!! We had an assortment of foods and everyone... More

It was good but I'll admit I got a normal dog with chili, nothing crazy. It wasn't the best I've ever had (new York dog or Anaheim stadium dog) it was good.

If you like your hot dogs with a "snap," this is the place to go. Smack in the middle of Shockoe Slip, it's a great place to sit and eat lunch (if you can find a seat) or get it for takeout. No matter what, the staff is friendly, the aura is unpretentious, and the food is great.

These hot dogs are great as is the chili. These are snap dogs with a really nice flavor. I believe these are my favorite dogs, I'm also a big fan of Joey's Hot Dogs too but City Dogs has a bigger dog and certainly is just as tasty.

Not your fine dining place but you will find suits and work boots sitting side by side at lunchtime. Great selection of gourmet hotdogs. Be sure to try the nuggets!

I was invited to try City Dogs as something different to do on date night. So we went. My date said oh these are great hotdogs you will love it. He lied. This was the worst hotdog I have ever had. The hotdogs we had in our elementary school cafeteria were better. It was the smallest hot dog I've ever... More

Lots of hot dog choices here and a fun place to have a drink. Could make the same dogs at home. Fries were small, only about 1-2 inches long and were what we know are the end of a bag or fryer. Nice people there.
