A Warren institution but my first visit. Friendly service. No crowd; we beat the lunch rush. Ordered cheddar chili dogs and fries. The dogs were small. Cheese sauce and onion topping were ok. Buns very fresh. But the chili sauce was very poor, little more than spiced ketchup. I've had a lot of chili dogs with real hearty chili sauce. This stuff was not hearty. The fries were served hot but with no seasoning. And once they cooled off...yuk. Probably won't be back if I have a choice. I will give them props for the wheelchair access ramp. It was well done.

Ever since the new owners took over the restaurants, the quality of product has gone down hill. Just today, the hot dogs were cold, the fries were hot, but not cooked all the way, the buns were stale, milkshake was more like chocolate milk than a shake. This is not just a one time thing. This has been ever since the new ownership. It kills me that this has been the case for myself and family. I grew up going there. I remember the fire that closed it for months in the 90s. The servers are not pleasant any more. Even when someone is nice to them it is met with an attitude and irritation. Again something that has been going on for a while now.I don't normally write companies about this stuff. However, being that The Hot dog shop is a classic for Warren, and is known nationwide, I can't sit back and watch this deteriorate in front of me.I feel shame for the previous owners, for the brand. It has now become about the money and to franchise it out throughout the state. Before the inflation happened due to covid, the new ownership raised the prices and care more about revenue then serving the community.It needs to get back into its roots and have pride in that.Sincerely,A mournful customer of the ORIGINALEdit- After reading the other reviews, I have noticed that other customers are saying the same thing I am. And all the new owners say is "I'm sorry, we don't aim for that" or something along those lines. The worst part is that's all the new owners are saying. Because if they said that 10 months ago, even a year ago, why is it still the same?! If the owners aren't going to do anything about it, then they need to look in the mirror and see for themselves it's them not just the workers. The workers are following the lead of their bosses. I can't fathom how an owner will allow this to happen to something they have put their money into.

Nothing is good here, service sucks, food has gone down hill since the new ownership. Owners don't do anything about it. Nothing is cooked all the way. Milkshakes are more milk than anything. Horrible

Chewy, cheesy, chiliey, cheap, and all-around amazing food. It's changed a bit inside, but the classic æsthetic is still very much preserved. Fantastic fries, shamazing shakes, and greasy glizzies. "Ask anyone."

Simple hot dog shop .. good food ... however. Wear a coat . It was freezing on there .. everyone had the same complaint...

My teen had their banana milkshake at the one in Girard and is now obsessed. That's all we got here, and it was equally excellent. Definitely give it a try

Always come here when we come home for a visit. This place has been here for years. Teenagers work here during the summer. Great 1st job for them.

Tommy Byler

Highly recommend this place. The food is great, unique, and affordable. Pictured below is the menu and a bowl of chili with a chili cheese dog.The chili is my favorite, especially with the onions and cheese.

Been coming here since very young- still LOVE IT... Taste stays true to my youth ( except the cheese sauce which has changed but it's not bad) it's a 330 thing!! Now that I live in Cinci, I have tried for of the famous chili dog places - they have several great ones & Skyline my favorite.. but THE HIT DOG SHOP WARREN OHIO is a staple. It's part of memories from generations .. Like 50 years of memories.. THEY ARE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT...

A long history of having the best chili dogs and fries in Warren Ohio Been going there since I was a kid! Highly recommend anyone to stop in this historic location.

I asked the lady to out cheese on one side so she charged me for a side. She would not let me finish a sentence. The manager came Ober and tried to talk with me and she kept talking. The new owners are thinning the sauce and the flavor isn't the same...super disappointing!
