I went to Spike's Junkyard Dogs for supper after hearing so much about them. It was my first visit. The atmosphere was great. The wall decorations had a nice urban industrial feel that suited the name of the restaurant. The menu options were plentiful. You can order your hotdog with a variety of toppings, all served on a torpedo roll... More

You'll never leave spikes without a full appetite. One of the best hotdogs I've had in the area. Perfect for a quick lunch spot.

While visiting family this week we heard many times to try this place out for lunch or dinner. The name itself is worth your time and drive, so cute! Im not a fan of hotdogs but my german dog was delicious! The bread tasted very fresh and homemade. My husband and boys loved the curly fries and their chili dogs!... More

We love the junkyard dog, always a favorite of mine! My daughter also likes the Italian one. The curly fries are a favorite as well. Great prices, easy location, quirky fun setting. Easy parking in adjacent lot.

Just the name, Spikes Junkyard Dogs. I had to go check this place out. Its all hot dogs all the time. It is a small unassuming place with personality plus. It has all sorts of memorabilia from the 50;s and 60's. It has all sorts of posters and art related to Junkyard Dogs. It is great just to sit there... More

Best Dogs in Providence, RI. Have been going here for a long time. Took my son for the first time. He loved the Texas dog and chili cheese fries. I know not very healthy but when you have to try these dogs. Once you have one you will keep going back to have more.

I have been going to this place for 4 years now. I know it's not the healthiest place to eat, but if you are out and about in the neighborhood and want an amazing hot dog, this is the place. They have many options of dogs, side orders, and a few sandwiches to accommodate those who aren't into these kids... More

If you like lots of toppings on your dogs this is the place to be. The buns were actually wonderful, fresh baked Italian bread loaves, which I personally found too much, but I'm not a bread person. With me it's all about the meat and the dogs were high quality, plump and juicy. Fries were great, too!

Went here for lunch take out (1:15 pm) I got 2 junkyard dogs. It's REALLY hard to screw up a hot dog.... Well these wieners were terrible. Awful and old like they had been the last two dogs at the bottom of the container and should have been thrown out. I also noticed that the bun was overly hard, crunchy... More
