Every time I visit Williamsburg, Gus's Hot Dog King is a mandatory stop. Good food, diner setting, at a great price.

Stopped in for a mi-day snack. Drove by lots of times. The staff were awesome. The place as a diner feel which I loved. They make their own chili and the dogs are awesome. Order a footling all the way. You won't be disappointed!

This is the only place we have ever found that is better than ballpark hotdogs. They can make them to order, anyway you like.

Great value option for quick, predictable food (hot dogs, cheese fries, similar items). "Fast food" with table or counter service. Staff seems to take pride in friendly reputation. Souvenir T-shirts often for sale.

I go there about once a month. It is always consistently good. There is nothing I can add to the many favorable comments. I do find it funny about some that mention "southern hospitality", being that this is owned and operated by a Greek family.
