City Dogs is the real deal! Their chili recipe is to die for and if you know what makes a good dog, it is the "snap". City Dogs delivers and I don't mean they make home deliveries. They deliver the real deal hot dog!

First time going to this restaurant. It was clean, the service was great, and the food was ever better. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of their hotdogs. My friend and I went around 12:30 and there was not a crazy lunch crowd. We'll definitely return.

Staying at Residence Inn, next door, it was a Saturday night around 10:30PM, stopped over for a quick dog to go. I was in & out in less that 3 minutes, awesome dog! I also noticed a nice selection of craft brews on tap.

My wife & I just moved here from NC and we love this place! The dogs are creative & delicious, and the staff is great. However my only complaint concerns one of the regular patrons- as we were approaching the restaurant tonight, said patron was harassing a panhandler across the street with hate-speech, to the point we had to call the ... read more

This small hole in the wall place was delicious! Great variety of specially chosen toppings for the burgers and dogs. The burger I got was great and average price. My only complaint would be the service. My group of coworkers walked in around 11 for lunch and were just greeted with eye rolls from the waitresses. Any group of 3 or mor ... read more

When you eat a hotdog and get the perfect snap... that's a damn good dog. I got the Tennessee Slaw Dog and the Chicago Dog. It's been a few hours and I'm still drooling over this meal. That Chicago dog had my spinning, for a second I thought I was standing under the bean. Back to reality, at this hole-in-the-wall piece of heaven. I s ... read more

This little dive bar has some of the best hotdogs and burgers in Richmond, Va. they stay open pretty late as well, for those late night munchies!

Quick, simple and good
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.

Unexpected Pleasure!
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 for. ... read more

If my wife loves this place so much, that she wants to go again the next day? Then yes, you NEED to go to this place!  This small, hole-in-the-wall Shockoe Slip dive/sports bar is my pick for best hot dog in  Richmond.  Why you may ask?  Variety!  Not only do they carry hot dogs, but also burgers (damn good burgers!) and sandwiches. ... read more

It was one of the few places open in downtown Richmond on a Sunday. I was greeted with a menu at the door. I chose the Pittsburgh sandwich, which was good. The service was great too.

Awesome unique dogs that are city themed. Top quality ingredients. Local beers served. They forgot our fries so one star subtracted. Otherwise a great place to dine on the dog.

Great weekly specials and March is my favorite month of the year mainly because of the Dublin Dog!

Finally found a true Chicago Dog
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 was so happy to actually have a ... read more

Good variety of dogs with some interesting combinations. The Louisville Stag Dog is an example. The onions are sautéed in Jim Beam Red Stag.  The hint of black cherry adds a sweetness to the onions without overwhelming. Dogs aren't your thing. They have burgers and sandwiches too. Full bar. Beers on tap and specials every day.

Downtown Richmond is sorely lacking a late night food scene but City dogs does a good job to fill help the void. Corn dog nuggets are my personal go-to and are a good item to share (if you want to). Their house made fries can be a hit or miss in terms of crispiness, but they are made-to-order and always come out hot. They have a good ... read more

Love a good hotdog!
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.

Wow! How have I never been here?? It was great, we were greeted at the door by Kevin and he came right over and gave us menus.

Good fast service, and tasty dogs in a rustic setting. Good menu selection, something to meet all tastes. The RVA dog is a good classic chili dog, for the less adventurous.

In the battle for best hot dog in Richmond, I personally think that the title goes to City Dogs. While the aesthetic of the restaurant is more of a small sports bar, if you can score a table then you will be in hog heaven!

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.
