This is the best hot dog ever. Don't schedule a business meeting after you eat one. The onions and sauce kick the hot dog up a notch, but everybody will know you just ate one.

For over 50 years I have enjoyed the Hot Weiner or Hanover Hot Dog. Try one with everything the chilli is outstanding. Fries with cheese and a beer are the best additions. Deserts are very good if I don't eat too many dogs. Super service.

Walked here from Timeline Arcade and we had the famous hot dog, french fries and a black raspberry milkshake. ..and all of it was very good. The hot dog was loaded with onions and chili so we had to eat it with a fork. The fries and milkshake were delicious!

The hot dogs and hamburgs are the best you will ever eat. I have been eating at the famous for 50 years. They never disappoint. Also you might try a milkshake. This will be the thickest you ever ate.

Enjoy your Hot Dogs or Hamburger with everything. Those onions smells you carry with you tells the people you meet, you just enjoyed the best Hot Weiner's in town.

Provided that your cholesterol is in check it is a traditional American food place. Hot dogs are being served with all the trimmings.

Very disappointed actually. I had read and heard so much abut this place so my wife and I decided to make the 25 mile drive. We went to the North York location for lunch today. The facility is a newer diner style building. Furnishings, counters, etc. also nearly new and quite clean. Arrived around 1 PM on a Saturday to... More

Mostly a local place, they don't have many locations. My family loves this place. We are fans of the chilly fries. The chilly is amazing. Mostly visited by locals. Be aware! Do not make planes after going here! We have a nickname for The Famous! "Gut Busters"! No joke. This is not a place u eat at everyday... Unless u... More
