“You must go to Tommy's”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

Hot Dog Tommy is a Cape May tradition for lunch or snacks. Across from the miniature golf course, you can't miss Tommy. He is the guy wearing the hotdog hat from his street side restaurant. And you have to try the Potato Tornado.

“Line wraps around the corner!”
Reviewed 19 January 2012

Good hot dogs..the fun is talking to Tommy or reading his instructions on how to order! Husband loves the Brown Doc Dog- they even have one with mashed potatos! Worth a trip off the beach for a lunch.

“Terrific Service, and Great hot dogs!”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

Not only is the owner/proprietor one of the nicest people you'll meet, the food is also delicious. Although the food consists of just hot dogs and sides, there's a lot of variety and creativity within the spectrum. And everything we ate was delicious! We ended up going three times! Can't wait to go back.

“Overrated”
Reviewed 21 November 2011

I thought the hotdogs were under par of what I consider to be the best in north Jersey. Very disappointing.

“Relish today! Ketchup tomorrow.”
Reviewed 18 September 2011

What's not to love about a guy wearing a hot dog on his head, cracking jokes, and remembering your kids' names? Best fast, inexpensive lunch in Cape May, and an experience so much fun it will become a memorable part of your vacation. Hey, Tommy, luv the mashed potatoes, but any chance of adding fries to your menu?
