I gave this a four star due to it is hot dogs. But the selections they have are excellent. The food is fresh and hot. The staff was great. Would recommend trying if you love hot dogs.

We had a family visit to Rochester. While looking for a lunch spot for vegetarians, vegans, AND regular old meat eaters we ran across Dogtown. There was something for everyone including all beef hot dogs for those that didn't eat pork. Everyone in our party of 8 found something to enjoy. Their menu and possible selections looked endless and very... More

I've had some really crappy veggie dogs before so I'm usually not impressed. Decided to try the veggie dogs here and they were pretty good. The portion sides are big and the food is good. I would definitely go there again

Stopped by at what we thought would be an off-hour last Saturday only to find the place jammed. The dogs were served perfectly cooked and we enjoyed beverages from Johnny Ryan's, a local favorite. Sit on the patio for any length of time and pretty soon you'll observe every shred of human debris going by.

I wanted a garbage plate before leaving Rochester but didn't have time to go to the home of the original. I had the garbage plate here and I enjoyed it. I can't compare it to others. My family had dogs, onion rings, fries, italian sausages and a grilled cheese. Everyone liked their food but couldn't finish it all. They thought... More

It's a great place for one time. It's expensive. You can buy a full pack of Zweig's hot dogs, buy some tasty really good kraut at Wegmans. Make your own on the grill. Cheaper. I felt like the bun was the star of the show. I get their idea. I think they will continue to be successful because it is... More

So you would think this place has the best hot dogs around and they probably do, but today I am here to vouch for the veg options. Ordered the veg plate with a veg burger and a veg dog. Fries are amazing. Mac salad was on point. The bean sauce alternative was fabulous as well. For under 10$ I left... More

This local business close to my house is amazing. I have had hot dogs in most big cities in our country but the best hot dogs are right here in my backyard. Their toppings, the bread and the dog - all super tasty!! If you are in the Rochester area and you have some time in your hand, please visit... More

Whenever I have the chance to eat at a local hot dog restaurant I always take the opportunity. Some are better than others but the Dog House in Rochester NY is in my top five. Aside from a huge menu and good quality dogs, what sets this place apart is their bun. It is a French baguette grilled and crunchy... More

If you a looking for a quick hotdog this is not the place to go. If, however, you are looking for a fun place to eat that is a Rochester classic, then Dogtown is for you. I met about 10 friends here on Saturday at 7:30, so we sat outside, went in shifts to order and enjoyed conversation while waiting... More
