Best place for a Hot Dog!! They also have hot-chee burgers and fries. This is a true treasure for Carlisle. Before you go to a show at The Carlisle Theatre, stop at The Hamilton House.

The Hamilton one of the mainstay diners in Carlisle -- simplistic and quaint. Don't want fancy then this is it. Great for a quick breakfast or lunch and we go whenever we get a hankering for a chilli dog. The staff are always friendly and...More

Always awesome food and great service! Highly recommend! The only small downside is they only take cash. (No credit cards or checks) but it's well worth the trip to the atm!!

We just visited The Hamilton within the past week. The Hotchee Dogs are $2.40 and the Hotchee Burgers are $3.00. Delicious.
