it's nice to find it fountain-style. i don't get/like chicago-style hot dogs but the coney was tasty. the chili-cheese fries were the best! the employees are so nice here...that combined w cherry coke zero earned them another star from me.

This is an interesting twist on different presentations of hot dogs/coney island style. They also cater and do an excellent job. They have a great Chicago Style Hot Dog

Hippo's has the best Chicago style hotdogs in Michigan - period! The restaurant is small, and maybe difficult to find if you don't know Troy well, but it is well worth the effort to find it. The walls are plastered with local and national celebrities that have eaten there, and one bite of their of their Chicago style dogs will... More

I had the Wednesday Special which is a Cajun sausage with peppers and onions, fries and a drink. It was very fresh, tasty, and a very good value.

I have never been able to find an authentic Chicago style dog outside of Chicago until now. I can't wait to come back and try some other dogs.

I've been to Hippo's many times before but I have never written a review before today. Took my mom for her first visit and she agrees with me that they have some of the best dogs in the Midwest. My favorite is the Great Scot with the tomatoes, pickle and hot peppers. Hippo's also serves some of the best fries... More
