Great place to enjoy the outdoors with many locals especially during off season months. Big selection of different fixin's and wonderful outside places to enjoy the meal!! A hop and skip to the beach to relax after eating a great snack or meal :)

Patrons can have their dogs in twenty or so varieties. I'm a chili, mustard, slaw and onion man. But, also had a sauerkraut and mustard dog. ( Never have ketchup on a hot dog 🐶!)

In my mind a trip to Wrightsville Beach would not be validated without a visit to the trolley stop. You most likely will have to wait in line but it's all part of the experience. They have a plethora of different themed hot dog toppings and they all hit the spot after a hot day on the beach.

If you love hot dogs this is the place. No atmosphere and no seating. Biggest selection of dogs anywhere. Fast, friendly service. Line gets pretty long during busy season. You cannot go to Wrightsville without eating a hot dog there. It is definitely worth the trip and the wait.

A trip to Wrightsville Beach would be incomplete without indulging in one or two Trolley Stop Hot Dogs. Many varieties to chose from that are reasonably priced. They also offer a variety of soft drinks, chips and awesome pickles! Service is quick and plenty of seating outdoors. The German Dog is my favorite with sauerkraut and deli mustard! Take time...

best hot dogs in town. Have been going there for years. Can get hot dog and eat outside on one of benches or table. Prices are very good. Nothing fancy at all in the inside but you go there not to eat inside but take home or eat outside.

Full disclosure: I am a fan of hot dogs. And there is nothing like a great hot dog on a summer day. Or at the ballpark. Or after a late night of drinking. Or, well, whenever. And like pizza, even a mediocre hot dog is still pretty good. Trolly Stop delivers on price, taste, convenience and toppings. A long list... More

Great quick place to get a hot dog. Lots of options for toppings, or what kind of hot dog you choose including vegetarian options. Always fresh and delicious. A fav of locals.

We eat here at least once every time we come to the beach. It's reasonably priced (a family of four can eat for $20), and the hot dogs are delicious. Family favorites are the Chicago style and NC style.

First off, and not to patronize, but for those of you not from the area The Trolly Stop Restaurant across from Station One Condo's memorializes the olden-day trolley to the beach from town.
