With so many new burger joints to go to these days its hard to sometimes know which place to go to. However, this place is an institution and for good reason. Basic char broiled burgers & hot dogs, french fries, thick ice cream shakes, etc. Burger? Hot Dog? Get one of each! Go for it!! Fresh crisp condiments complete your... More

Really love their hamburgers (Happy Burger)! Truly a "hole in the wall" (only parking for 6 cars, maybe 6 tables). Lots of Los Gatos people walk there. The rest of my family likes their chicken burgers and corn dogs. Their milkshakes are really good, but typically so thick that you get a sore jaw trying to use a straw :)... More

I'm not the biggest fan of hot dogs - never was. But when my husband first brought me to Happy Hound about 30 years ago, I had to admit these were about the best hot dogs I have ever had! And still are! The servings are more than enough, and the fries and onion rings are great, too. There's a... More

We love the hound! We travel down from San Mateo every month or two to get our fix: cheeseburgers, fries, onion rings and shakes. Burgers are well-endowed, with a good amount of cheese, done perfectly. Produce on top is fresh (crisp lettuce!). Onion rings are large, portions are generous. I've only had the original hot dog hound a couple times... More

I really enjoyed my hotdog (hound dog) it snaps when you bite into it. The fries were average but my blackberry shake was dynamite

Fresh produce on every burger!! Always cooked to perfection and the fry order is always more than you can eat! Been my favorite burger joint for many many years. Everything on the menu is good so you can't go wrong with anything you order. Family run busy from day one...

We has a cheese hound, chili cup, fries and a soda all for $14. Good basic food at a really reasonable price. We were glad to see they were still there (last ate there 40 years ago) and that they were as good as ever. Look forward to eating there again and trying one of their shakes. They have a... More

Great Local Joint for Dogs and Burgers. Limited Parking and always busy, but worth the effort! Love Chili/Cheeses Dog and Fries with a Shake!
