Betts11:27 11 Aug 19One of the last great Connecticut hot-dog road houses, and a real townie gem. toasted bun, fried to perfection hummel bros frankfurter, spicy relish that I wake up craving, and a splash of cold birch beer. That, my friends, is the quintessential Blackies; Simple, timeless, delicious.Lisa Marie02:47 08 Aug 19I have lived in Waterbury most of my life and have never tried a Blackie's Hot Dog until last night. I have to honestly admit it was the best hot dog I've had in a long time! The service was friendly and fast. Kudos to the professional young man with the red beard and the young lady on the grill. They worked well as a team. I will definitely be back soon for a great hotdog and friendly service!Jim MacFarlane23:13 02 Jul 19Great hot dogs, the relish is amazing, a little heat. Staff is friendly, fast service. The milkshake was thick and creamy. The coffee flavor shone through.Anna Steel18:11 25 Jun 19I love this place! Such good food and it's not too expensive. The only downside is they only take cash but they have an atm on site so that works out. I would come here every week if I could.Daniel Unger03:56 19 Jun 19Awesome hot dog place!

Outside order but under a cover with a counter. Some inside seating. Delicious and fast.Chuck Lindblom00:02 09 May 19Came here on the way back from a work meeting. The coworker I was with said it was a good spot for a quick meal. The hotdogs came out incredibly quick, and hot the spot. Looking forward to going back again. Simple menu done right.Sara Egan22:32 08 May 19Hot dogs and hamburgers. Quick in and out. Ice cream too. Excellent for a fast meal and the staff was super friendly.Luis Somoza09:57 09 Apr 19Blackie's is a time capsle, it's dark and unassuming joint where little has changed since 1928., with time tested fare you will get a filling hot dog at a fair price.Even the staff show the ravages of time, but they greet you with a smile and you feel at home with all the strangers eating at the counter. The hot dogs arrive within minutes, served on paper plates, naked, nothing on but in front of you a dispenser with their home made relish.Blackie's is filled with local flavor and colorful history that can't be found at any chain restaurant.Stuart Post14:16 14 Jan 19Been a customer since the early 70's. My order is always.... "two and a small Birch Beer"... in and out in minutes...even if you eat there! Simple, great hot dogs with a very nice spicy brown mustard... but the relish is their thing! Great lunch on the run or when you're running your weekend errands. But remember... they're always closed on Fridays.
