Owner had told me cannot get beer license unless used real plates and silverware and had ...tablecloths?? I think..

Apparantly, it's required by Rockport's rules on alcohol licensing

I personally suggest Hostgator for webhosting. They are truly professional, support is perfect and uptime good. Go to hostgator_dot_com and use "onecentcoupons" coupon code. You get first month just for free which is good deal.

Not a bad place for an afternoon snack, reasonable prices and I don't risk losing my parking spot on afternoon's when I am going out with friends for cocktails.I agree with the other guy an ice cold beer with the dogs would be the perfect addition to put it over the top.

I think the owner told me that he uses Maple Leaf dogs with beef and pork as they had the best taste of all that he had tried. I have to agree. This is a great stop on BSN when you are taking a break from seafood offerings. The only thing that would improve my visits there would be some ice cold draft beer!

Top Dog has amazing hot dogs - the prices seem a little steep for a hot dog - even a fancy one - but they do taste great. The french fries were like "fair fries" and were also excellent. Great place.

We love this place! okay, it's kitschy, but that's part of the fun. I love the golden retriever dog (topped with macaroni and cheese sauce)!

It's a quirky, low key little place to go after you've worked in the yard or just on the spur of the moment. It is always a hit with visitors too!

i do like hot dogs, but the fried clams here are out of this world!

the hot dog is just an ordinary hot dog from the supermarket, and clever toppings, but i wouldnt say the dog is the best ever>

The hot dogs are fab and the toppings plentiful but what really makes this place shine are the Oh So Delicious onion bricks..the most tender crispy treat imaginable.....mmmmmm.....

There's just dogs or the rest of the menu. GREAT quality food with innovative varieties, nice friendly atmosphere, very reasonable, and fun!

This guy knows how to make a hotdog. I highly recommend this place. If you eat outside in the summer, watch out for Charlie. He is a pesky seagull that also loves the food there.
