Love their chili cheese dogs and chicken tamales. I wish they still offered milkshakes instead of the slushes.

There is something about the snap in these traditional dogs. Nothing fancy, just good old taste of days gone by hot dogs with all the trimmings. It's a through-back to the 50's. Mostly take out, but you can sit if you get there early.

I have been going to Casper's in one or another of its locations for 50 years. You can count on the same delicious hot dog and trimmings and the friendly service by mostly older women, bless 'em!.

Another very disappointed customer left with granddaughter when sent to neighboring McDonald's to get a milkshake. Lots of people EXPECT milkshakes at Casper's, and this doesn't set well with old timers. Plus, having lived on the east coast and getting familiar with Smith hot dogs,...More

Living now on the east coast, Caspers is one of those bay area places I miss. Love their hot dogs though I always have them hold the relish. Love the tomato slices, onions and mustard, and one of the best hot dogs there is! Costco...More
