Every once in a while I stop into the Doghouse for lunch. They have one of the best chili cheese dogs I have ever tasted. Stop in and judge for yourself.

Old school counter service. Fast paced friendly . Extremely clean . A cast of characters who work and frequent the establishment. Avoid fast food and go to this unique one of a kind place

Whenever I feel like a chili cheese dog, I always go to the Doghouse. A friend introduced me to this place back in 1995 and I have been coming ever since. Once you are seated, you get served fairly quickly. You cannot beat their prices either. This are foot - long hot dogs folks, not the little ones everybody else... More

This place is one of the last diner experiences in the area. The place is great for a dog, steak sandwich or hoagie. I love this place and will keep coming back when I'm in the area!

Food is not bad, but not that great either. Average at best, but you do get a lot of food for the price. Pizzas are large in size, but can sometimes taste like cardboard. Sandwiches are a good size. The fries (with cheese) are really good here, but outside of the fries, everything else is either just okay, or a... More
