I had the Philly Dog and a Chicago dog and they were both really good. Didn't need all that "jazz" and bells and whistles for a good hotdog.

We came across the City Dogs during our sightseeing of the Shockoe area and decided to try it out. So glad we did. There are many specialty hot dogs to try, but my husband picked the Steven Dog named after the manager/waiter/cook. This one was made with onions sauteed with bourbon and was delicious. The french fries were to die... More

Since my cousin loves hot dogs, I took her and my sister to City Dogs while she was on spring break. I ordered a Philly dog and a Chicago dog. My sister ordered a Chicago dog and the Manhattan sabrett dog. My cousin ordered the Philly dog and the Carolina Dog. Verdict: Best hot dog I have ever had. I... More

No one can turn down a hotdog. Their menu is especially inventive with a number of different hotdog options. We had the chicago dog and a regular chili cheese. They were amazing - the perfect amount of snap to the skin. They also have a bar and lots of side options. Perfect for a quick snack.

City Dogs is our go-to Sunday Brunch restaurant. They're in the VCU/Fan area. They have a simple menu of hot dogs, burgers, and a few other sandwiches. We've tried almost all of their offerings and they're all great. The staff are friendly and know the regulars. They have a bar and several tables inside. There's also outside seating. There's several... More

After taking a canal boat ride and a stroll down the canal walk we were alittle hungry, but with it being around 1:30 we didn't want to eat too big of a lunch to spoil our appetite for dinner. After checking out the menu, we decided that a hot dog would be just about right. I had the Honolulu dog-... More

Our second visit to City Dogs! A cool, laid back place with great Dogs, burgers and other options. Clean shotgun style with a nice little bar, great service. Definitely worth a visit. We will be back!

We were standing on the street corner looking at the menu posted. Several patrons came out and told us it was good. We were joined on the sidewalk by several friends and decided to give it a try! It was absolutely wonderful. The place is very small and the staff were superb!!! We had an assortment of foods and everyone... More

It was good but I'll admit I got a normal dog with chili, nothing crazy. It wasn't the best I've ever had (new York dog or Anaheim stadium dog) it was good.
