“Local hot dog spot has been around since 1918”

Curtis Famous Weiners
Ranked #15 of 108 Restaurants in Cumberland
Restaurant details
Reviewed 13 July 2017 via mobile

This hole in the wall place is famous for their hot dogs. There are other options but hot dogs are the thing to get. We were greeted by Gino who does everything there, greets you in an outgoing, friendly fashion, takes your order, cooks it, and is the cashier! He said that the 6 inch dogs typically have brown mustard, chili and onions. Cost $1.75 each and we shared 3 of them, with a side of great French fries. Really tasty and less than $10 for a meal. A fun local place. We talked to Gino some more and he joined us outside for some picture taking. If you are in Cumberland you should stop in to experience this place.

You have got to be kidding me. I read some other reviews of this place and it seems these people have no idea what good food taste like. It certainly is not found here! Stopped in this town just to go to this place for some good food. I soon realized I should have went to McDonald's instead. The so-called world famous Coney Island Weiners were a very poor quality hot dog. The sauce that was supposed to amazing was nearly tasteless. I can make a much better Coney Island sauce at home and frankly it isn't even close in taste to what this place serves. Their World Famous sauce is just nasty. The hamburger was precooked at some other time and then placed in a deep fryer to heat it up. Are you kidding me! I ate one bite and threw the rest out. Don't get me wrong the appearance of the place does take you back in time. The prices are excellent. The guys serving are friendly and entertaining. But the old adage is certainly true "You get what you pay for." See Wildwood NJ and Maui Hot Dogs for a great place to get a good Hot Dog! Also please know that there are two places in Cumberland one named Coney Island Famous Weiners and the other Curtis' Famous Weiners. These places must have consolidated some time ago since the Coney Island Famous Weiner place is a few steps away and has a sign pointing you to Curtis'. You may want stop and see that place but don't expect a whole lot from the food.

The house special dogs are great and this place nails that hometown hole-in-the wall feel. Well worth the stop if you are in the area.

This is not a fancy place but the chili dogs are worth mentioning and the guys who work there are friendly and helpful about local information. I believe 3 generations have been running this business since 1918. They also serve hamburgers, other sandwiches, fries, soft drinks, milk, and hand dipped milkshakes. We stop in to get a Coney Island every time we visit Cumberland. I must try the hamburgers next time. The dogs with chili sauce, mustard & onions were $1.75 each. Can't remember other prices but the prices were average. They are open Monday thru Saturday 9 am - 9 p.m. Closed Sunday and major Holidays.

Our group of four we looking for an economical place to eat and wound up here. This restaurants has been serving Cumberland for 98 years and Gino is third generation! Three of us ordered Coneys and one ordered a hamburg - all with brown mustard, onions and Coney sauce. Buns were steamed and coney sauce was good (not spicy). Coneys are all a little different and these were pretty good. The sole order of fries ordered had been fried too long. The restaurant and is filled with memorabilia! Part of the restaurant an be reserved for parties or reunions. Gino was a great host!
