Every city should have an old, divey, inexpensive hot dog place. Like the Varsity in Atlanta or Brandi's in Marietta, Ga. We have a place in Chattanooga, but it is kind of on the trendy side, and the prices range from $3 to $6.75. Chris'...More

This wonderful, little, family-owned hot dog stand is a treasure to the citizens of Montgomery, and a necessary stop for many visiting the City. On May 1, 2017, Chris' celebrated its 100th anniversary in the same location. We met several old friends there and had...More
