  • Order 'two burnt ones and a Coke'
  • Owner George Poniros still follows his grandma's advice: "Never put ketchup in there. We spend too much time making delicious chili for people to ruin it."
  • Follow in Adams footsteps and attempt to beat The Roast Grills Hot Dogger Challenge record. As seen on Travel Channels Man v. Food Nation.
  • Best little hot dog joint in town.., go here!!
  • Not many places left that feel and are authentic. This is one of them. 2 dogs all the way and a soda.
  • Order a large coke. You get 20 oz for just 50 cents more than the cute 8 oz bottles. Although drinking from the glass is kinda cool. . . .
  • A Raleigh establishment. A must-go.
  • If you like your dogs crispy on the outside, order them well done. George keeps some on the grill extra time just for that purpose.
  • Being new I just got 1 dog with everything... go ahead and just get 2. Great dog in a great hometown atmosphere.
  • I've seen this place on various lists of must try places to eat in Raleigh. Went by today with excitement. Got a hotdog all the way. It was ok but nothing to write home about. May try it again.

  • The hot dogs!! I don't like hot dogs but I love the hot dogs here!!
  • Discovered the joint on Foursquare. Love hot dogs...excited to try these. It's after 11am and it's not open yet! Called and no one answers.
  • This place was simply stunning. It was like stepping into my grandparents basement and being fed delicious, delicious hotdogs. Free tootsie rolls with your check
  • Very cute, very old school.
  • Their hotdogs with chili and mustard are amazing! We had a square of baklava and it was the absolute best baklava I've ever had, I have never had a piece of baklava so full of flavor until just now.
  • Hot Dog, rigorosamente con il chili!!!
  • Awesome hot dogs! All the way style gets you mustard, onions and homemade chili that is perfect for these dogs! Can't just eat one!
  • This hole in the wall has the best hot dogs in town, order them 'burnt' and George will deliver you up crispy perfection. Great chili. Save a little room for pound cake. A Raleigh landmark. A+
