Restaurant review: Nothing more American


Still yummy after all these years!

Jewel Esparza, from The Armijo Signal January 2013

Finding great food at a low price can sometimes be difficult, but when you’re in Fairfield there’s always one place you can be sure that you will leave happy and satisfied.

When you want an all-American experience, what’s better than enjoying a classic hot dog? At Famous Vinnie’s Hot Dogs you can have exactly that, but it doesn’t just stop with just a regular hot dog. Vinnie’s has many types to choose from including Chicago dogs, Polish dogs, chili cheese dog (most popular), and many others. There’s sure to be one to suit your personal preference. You can add to this already great meal by making it a combo with chips and a soda. Vinnie’s recently added nachos to their menu, too.

Not only are all their hot dogs amazingly good but they are inexpensive as well! Ranging from $3.99 to $5.55 (Note: prices are updated from original article) – less when you use their coupons and specials, all of their hot dogs are made from 100% beef with a natural casing for a freshness you can taste.

Vinnie decided to open up the restaurant because he wanted to bring that New York experience with him into Fairfield. Raised in the restaurant business and being surrounded by New York’s amazing hot dogs, he was inspired to introduce that experience to this area and it is paying off. Everyone loves coming to Famous Vinnie’s Hot Dogs, even local police officers and firefighters. Veterans and military personnel who dine there get a discount, too. According to Vinnie himself, even Fairfield’s own Mayor Harry T. Price loves coming in to enjoy a hot dog.

Teens have a special reason to go to Vinnie’s. If you bring in your student ID with you, you can get student discounts. It’s the perfect place to stop by after school with your friends to get a bite to eat. Located on 1708 West Texas St across from Allan Witt Park, Vinnie’s is the place to be!

Vinnie said, “Come in for the best hot dog in town!” Believe me you definitely won’t regret it.
