This long-time favorite is part of Bellingham's culture. Not to be missed on any trip to Bellingham. Greaat Sausages, Hot Dogs, Specialty Sandwiches, pretzels and craft beers. Covered heated outdoor seating year round.

El capitans is the place to go for a quick hot snack and maybe a good local beer to get you through to your next meal. Reasonable prices, lots of topping options

Awesome place for late night walk up service. Grab a beer while you wait.

This spot is great! Super covid responsible, have some outdoor seats with heaters. We got into town on the late side and there they were with beers and hot dogs making our dreams come true. The dogs and fries hit the spot and small but good draft beer selection. The vegan option is delicious! Love that they have both vegan and meat options for a mixed bunch.

Dude this place is the biiiizzzz! where else can you get frito pie and a buttery,chewy,soft, salted pretzel at 1130 at night after smoking a fatty? ? so 5 stars for convince 5 stars for selection 5 stars for always packing the bag neatly with condiments packaged nseparately, so you can add what you want when your food arrives, 5 stars for taste and lastly, 5 stars for reasonable pricing! That’s a big deal as most items on delivery apps like Uber eats are jacked up by a lot compared to ordering in a restaurant. I’m convinced this place is owned and operated by some cool hippies or some cool stoners ?

Best hot dogs in town! Cool place, owners always fun and so is the atmosphere

They are cool,they kinda funny about giving up all the basic items,I think they smoke to many joints and it gets foggy back there,its a cool little jump off spot

COVID review: Excellent adaptations to the virus problem, with their walk-up window, fencing, and more. We were the only group there so we were able to eat outside without having to worry about distance at all, but the setup would have allowed for one or two other groups to eat outside safely. They have heaters outside also. Note the two EXCELLENT VEGAN hot dog options with variations. All three of us had the Vegan Lucy and it was awesome - the dog, the toppings, and the soft bun. We also had cole slaw, french fries, ginger beer, and a Boundary Bay Scotch Ale. All were great. We were sad to leave Mustard's Last Stand in Boulder but we have found our new hot dog spot!

Best kept secret in Bellingham for sausages. The captain is a local favorite and worth the money for the amount of food you actually get.

I love this place! They make it easy to order ahead online. Walk up window with very friendly staff!

Now... are there a lot of places where you can get hot dogs in Bellingham? No.That does not change the fact that here you'll find the best hot dogs on this side of the Rockies. I'd say the best this side of the Mississippi, but I don't want to offended anyone from Chicago.Personal choice: Louisiana Link with Bacon and cream cheese. Yes it's weird, try it anyway. Other than that you can't go wrong with an XO.

Excellent brats and dogs, including many vegan/vegetarian options. Can't believe I waited so long before going there, and now I can't wait to go back!

I'm really confused by the 5 star rating here. Nothing was good about the food for me. My brat was not even hot, and the topping were not fresh or good quality. The service was ok, but I was starving and couldn't even finish my brat it was so bad.

Love this place for a affordable lunch spot and late night snack to soak up the booze
