We were looking for a quick lunch and stumbled across Spikes. We tried 4 different hot dog options and all were good. We did not have any complaints.

Great hot dogs until I saw the huge rat droppings, these were big. Really unhappy. They were in the utensil cup. When I grabbed the utensils to bring to the table a few droppings traveled to the table. I didn't want to make a scene and just left.

My husband and I stop there many sundays on the way home from church for our burger fix. We enjoy their hot dogs too. They are excellent quality and flavor. All sorts of toppings to choose from also. Great place for a quick bite to eat.

I ordered the classic, all beef dog. others in our party had the veggie dog and the burger. If size matters, all portions were generous, including the fries which were also very good. Dog had good flavor, nice bite. Served on a baguette, which makes a big difference. Not as doughy as a normal hot dog bun, but big enough... More

I haven't been to Spikes in a very long time. I love hot dogs, so this place is for me. This time I had a dog, fries, and chick wings. (Yes I did over eat!) I will say that no matter which Spikes you visit, they have the same great taste.

If you've ever had a crazy idea for what to put on your hot dog. They've probably already thought of it here. This Junkyard themed hot dog stand makes your 1/4 lb all beef hot dog on a freshly baked 1/4 lb hot dog roll the coolest quick food grab around. Try the "poodle" fries, yes they're seasoned, yes they're... More

I find it pretty sad for the city of cranston that spikes is #19 for restaurants. Spikes is fast food and should be removed from trip advisor.
