Yes. Stop in for a reminder of how much simpler things used to be - cash only - dogs and drinks only - family owned. Nice escape from modernity.

The ambience and food was better than anticipated! Now wonder why it took us 48 years to drive downtown to experience sitting on a barstool, ordering hot dogs all the way---NC style with mustard, cole slaw, onions and chili---, bottle Coke, and baklava. No frills, just good food and hospitality!!! Certainly won't wait another 48 years to return :-).

Roast Grill is in a cozy little spot downtown Raleigh. You know what to expect when you go: NO KETCHUP, limited menu, hot dogs cooked the right way, and drinks. Dining area is small, turnover is quick, and the decorations are fantastic! Always a treat when the owner is working and the tootsie roll is a nice touch for my... More

Quirky joint. Good dogs and nothing else. No ketchup allowed. Cramped inside, often with lines out the door. Worth checking out...

Without a doubt, the best hot dog I have ever had. "Burnt with mustard and chili" is absolute heaven. I go to Raleigh at least 2x a year, and Roast Grill is always my first stop. Love the dogs and love the owner, George!!!

To be fair, I did not actually visit the Roast Grill. A co-worker of mine went there on his lunch break and brought back 20 something hot dogs for a bunch of us. Hot dogs were tasty and had really good toppings. Chili was delicious. And this review is having ate them after the drive back to Brier Creek with... More

A waste of 47 years of my life I say ! I've been missing out on the best hotdogs ... That are served here ! Could very well be the best in the world ! Big call but surely better than the Sydney Zoo 😀 I popped in 16 June 16 and the owners and I shared a few stories... More
