Stop in at this local favorite for the best hot dogs on the North Shore! Enjoy your choice of three kinds of dogs – including veggie dogs – and 14 toppings on toasted buns. Great Reubens and grilled cheese sandwiches too, served with chips and drinks. Outside picnic tables are available for casual dining with marsh views. This place is a charming throwback to the hot dog stands of yesteryear.
Essex River Dogs is located in the heart of the Essex River Cultural District among antique and specialty shops. Essex Shipbuilding Museum, ERBA kayak tours, Cape Ann SUP paddleboards, river cruises and marinas are a short distance away.
