Wow, what a find! Great homemade chili and slaw, delicious dogs and great fries. All for drive-in prices. Definitely worth a visit.

I am never disappointed with the food and the service here. You can eat at the picnic tables or go through the drive thru. Traffic can be a little tricky during rush hour getting in, but it's worth it. Great place for lunch!

The staff are great! Always super happy, polite, and helpful. My favorite place to get a poor man's hot dog!

If you like old fashioned hot dogs at a good price this is your place. They also have good North Carolina barbecue, coleslaw, and hush puppies. Their Brunswick stew is also good. If you are not southern you will probably not like the food. No indoor seating.

When I am looking for that hot dog to take me back to when they were good, only the dog house can answer the bell. They are still the best dogs town.

I MISS THE DOG HOUSE! Used to live in Durham but moved away years ago. Got a chance to stop at the Dog House on a trip and it's still as good as I remembered! The "regular" red hotdogs were great and the beef dogs are excellent too. My favorite, the "Bulldog" (Mustard & Chili) was still on the menu along with all the other old standbys. The crinkle-cut fries were crispy outside and steamy inside. Woof Woof, Dog House! Good Dog!

Great hot dog. Fresh bun, fresh slaw, onions, and a generous helping of chili. Hot and delicious. They have changed from crinkle fries, but still using a good grade. Friendly employees, clean store. 99% grade on cleanliness. Fast service.

Staff was super friendly,efficient. Food great as usual. I did find something funky in bbq. A grisly piece that was tube form so I stopped eating the sandwich. Someone needs to check into that.

They had fresh cheese fries but they could've given me more for my money. The tray hardly had any fries but they were definitely cooked well!

Ordering and receiving my order was fast and efficient. Due to this location being off of Hillsboro rd., it can be difficult getting in and out when it's busy later on in the day. Otherwise, it's a good Dog House location!

We travel all the way from Raleigh to Durham just to eat here. No other hot digs are like The Dog House and never will be. There are many that try to duplicate it but just can't do it. Bring some to Raleigh please so we can have them more often!!! Always a superb meal.

Friendly take out. Choose your toppings with cute dog breed labels. I am partial to the crinkle fries. Also serve BBQ and some desserts.

Got the regular beef dog, decent hotdogs but nothing spectacular, giving it 4 stars in good faith just because i haven't tried the sausage dog yet and thats supposed to be the best.

Good old-fashioned hot dogs that are perfect for late night snacks. Liked how their dogs are very moist, and chills were also good.

I love these hotdogs. I drove from Raleigh to Durham to the Hillsborough Rd store to meet my sister for lunch. We got the Boxer hotdog, fries & apple turnover everything was delicious it was worth the 45 min drive.

Great carnival style hotdogs! Nothing fancy, just the basic varieties. But the basics are the best. I always do the Bull or Boxer dogs. They now have all beef available also. Service is fast and friendly.

Great basic dogs and fries. Inexpensive. Love the new all beef dogs. For fast food, it's better than a lot of other options.

Always a great place to eat at with friends or family. Eat in your car, there at the picnic tables or take it home. Love how all the hotdogs are named after dogs. The fries are the ultimate best with really good tea. Actually I could find nothing wrong with the place excpet I always leave too full lol. It is the best place ever to get hotdogs!! Just saying.

I grew up going to The Dog House. I haven’t been in years and when I went this past week to get some food for a family member because it was requested and their in another city I had to get them their collie dog, apple pie and sweet tea. Their food is really good and they now have beef hot dogs, good for those who don’t eat the regular franks. I really love their apple pies and their sweet teas...literally their sweet is like grandma style sweet tea😋

Nice place to grab some dogs for lunch. Service is always friendly and I enjoy the smiles. Prices are fair, which is not always the case when eating out these days. I was surprised how good their barbecue sandwiches and Brunswick stew were. Give those a try if you don't want a dog. One side effect of the food is heartburn, which is unfortunate. I think it's their chili. Most of the people I know that eat there have complained of this and I was actually warned of it when I was brought there for the first time by a coworker. I still go back!

I don't want to tarnish this rating by giving it less than 4 stars however I don't think that this is the best dog I've ever had but it was good quality the wait was over 15 minutes to get for hot daal combos that seeing excessively longer than what it should be considering I don't didn't taste that they did anything extra to make the hot dogs take that long but they were freely decent hotdogs so I doubt if I would return back in the future but it was good while it lasted

Something has changed with the flavor. This use to be my favorite place to get hot dogs but every time I come around lunch time my hot dogs are never hot and most recently the chili is kind of spicy to me. I ordered today and the chili was very salty. I'm disappointed 😞. I will say the customer service is always great!

Had three different types of smothered beef hot dogs plus crinkle-cut fries. Just order at the outside window or go to the drive-thru. All three dogs were tasty, but not huge in size. Chili was solid. Fairly inexpensive fare.

Best hot dogs around. These are from my childhood so maybe I love them because of that. Very nice associates every time I go there. Not your typical fast food.

Don’t go in drive thru if you need to order more than 6 hot dogs have to go stand in long wait lines just to order more than 6 which you are still taking up just as much time either way good thing we don’t have to go through this type of limited food amounts at Mc D’s or Bo J’s cause they definitely provide bigger quantity regardless how you shop I mean come on it’s a hot dog how many can fit in one bag I’m sure more than 6. Maybe they will change this one day it’s definitely to hot this summer to have to stand in a outside line to order more than 6 hot dogs when you have the luxury of a drive thru. I give them four because their dogs to me are better tasting than some of their other locations.
