Hot Dog Charlie's is family-owned and operated. Started in 1922 in Troy, NY by Greek immigrant Strates Fentekes, Hot Dog Charlie's has spanned three, family generations. Our secret recipe of chili sauce with meat is often imitated, but never duplicated. Join us at Hot Dog Charlie's! Your taste buds will thank you!
