If your looking for the best place to get hot dogs in central Massachusetts, you can get them at George's Coney Island hot dogs on Southbridge Street, in the down town area in Worcester, MA.

Coney Island Hot Dogs have been around since the 1918. The best thing about this establishment, other than the hot dogs, is the decor and atmosphere. The customers sit in the original booths that were put in place when it was built. It is truly a blast from the past. Just think that you may be sitting in the same booth as you mom or dad did. Or even you grandparents or great-grandparents. WOW! How may places can say that? Not many. Most have been torn down or are in a musem some place. Following is a review by Stephen Rushmore Jr. who describes it better than I can.

"Just a two-minute detour from Route 290 at exit 13 in Worcester, MA led me to an absolute treat of an old-fashioned hot dog eatery. For over 80 years George's Coney Island Hot Dogs have truly been a local favorite. Everything about the restaurant oozes Roadfood - the large neon sign outside with a 10-foot hotdog, the long counter with over 100 hot dogs grilling, the enormous tub of mustard waiting to be tossed onto the dogs, the well-worn eating booths with completely illegible graffiti, and a menu with prices that make you think you have stepped back in time."

"The menu at Coney Island is straightforward - the classic order is a hot dog with mustard, chili and onions. They also have hamburgers and some basic sandwiches, but considering the overwhelming number of hot dogs on the grill, it is obvious that the dog is the prized food option. Coney Island also offers a complete choice of both soda and beer."

"The dogs are relatively thin with a proportionate amount of mustard, chili sauce and onions. The chili, which is the key ingredient, is a thin and mild homemade variety that functions as a gluing agent for the other ingredients. The result is a tasty and moist dog that goes down in just a few bites. Plan on ordering two or three to fill your appetite."

New Hot Dog Annie's Side.

In 2011 Hot Dog Annie's had a makeover. The new owners upgraded to more modern insulated doors and windows. They also put an air lock at the exit area to keep the cold air from entering the building during the winter. The color of the building has been changed from the familiar light blue to red. Even though these changes were made, the food inside is exactly the same.

Hot Dog Annie's is known for their famous secret barbecue sauce. They not only put some on top of your hot dog, but they cook their hot dogs in the BBQ sauce. Don't bother asking for the recipe for the BBQ sauce or to take some home, that just isn't going to happen. But, if you know where to look, you may be lucky enough to find the recipe. Hint: it's not on this web site. They have a great deal on Wednesday's of 4 dogs for $4.25. Chips and drinks are extra.

Bob's Hot Dog Truck
At The Reservoir, Route 12
West Boylston, MA


Bob's Hot Dog Truck


Bob's Is Open For Business.

Bob's Hot Dog truck is noted for his great location at Wachusett reservoir and his wife's home made Chili for the hot dogs. There is a terrific water view when you eat, especially on a warm summer day. You have a choice of eating your hot dogs in your car, at the picnic tables provided by the town or go over by the water and eat on the grass.

It's sad to say that Bob has passed away, but the hot dog truck is still there and is in operation. It's strange now that when you get your order not to hear Bob give you his famous salutation of "Have a Salubrious Day."
