Love the hot dogs and wedding soup! Not pricey and is clean. Two people can eat here for about $15.00 including the tip. This is a great fast food place!

"The Hot Dog Shop" (as we refer to it in our family), is our go-to place for a quick, tasty, economical meal. This place is a lifesaver when we just need a quick drive-through place that isn't a nasty McCoroprate food stop. Fresh fries, hot dogs with chili and cheese, milkshakes so thick you need a spoon - just some... More

I have been coming here for almost 15 years and I still love it. The hot dogs, cheese fries and milkshakes (vanilla and banana) are delicious, the food comes quick and the staff is friendly. Love it.

The hot dogs, hamburgers and fries are good. But what I always get is a bowl of the wedding soup. It's homemade and not too salty.

I have eaten at various locations for over 35 years, and this one for 20, when we come back to Pittsburgh, this is one can't miss place. For those looking for fancy decor or trendy foods, move along. What the Hot Dog Shoppe has done forever is serve inexpensive ($1.25 plain/$1.55 chili cheese) dogs. They make their own hot dogs... More

People may argue about which Brighton Hot Dog Shop is the best, but fans of this local chain will tell you that any of them beat any other hot dog joint out there. First of all, it's delicious and seems even more delicious because it's so cheap. The buns are nice and soft, the hot dogs are good, and the... More

On an Ohio trip,stopped for a quick bite and gave it a try after seeing it on a previous trip. Huge dining area,a basic dog with a few variations,but tasty. Quick service (inside) that didn't cost a mint. I'll be back again when in the area.

I stopped here two days ago and was very pleased. This place has been around for years and does a great job on dogs and service. I no longer live in the area but I was glad I stopped here.
