Ohhh, Spike's, I love having you around the corner from my house. The hot dogs are what Spike's is known for, but everything else is just as good - boneless buffalo chicken, steak and cheese subs (mmmm) and salads. The atmosphere is really cute, and you can get a full meal for under $8. If you finish 6 hot dogs or burgers in one sitting, you get a T-shirt and a spot on the wall! A great dive-looking place for broke college kids like me.

Pros: Food, price, atmosphere, location

What a find! Spikes has amazing all night type of food. The dogs are great but so are the chicken fingers and the rest of their menu. It is a very small place but conveniently located near a few bars and it's great for a between bar stop for a quick bite.

The smoked jumbo 100% all beef (or fat free veggie dogs) are the best I've ever had. Whats even better is that they are always fresh and served on a warm fresh crispy french roll. Top it with anything you could possibly want, or just a plain Spike's dog on a bun you wont be dissapointed.

Certainly the best dogs I've ever had in Boston. They have many different types of dogs, with combinations of toppings you would never think would be good on a dog, but really are amazing! If you don't like any of their combinations, you can always get a Sinatra dog, which is "have it your way" and put whatever you want on there. I did partake in the 6 dog challenge. If you are to do this, I would suggest regular beef dogs and not veggie. Although the veggie dogs are good, after 4 or so without any toppings, they can become sickening. Basically, this place is fun, and if you haven't been, go try it!

This small Rhode Island chain makes its presence known in the Boston area. The place is definitely known for the unique dogs and toppings, so get your chicken and pizza elsewhere. The hot dogs are baked for a bit before served. Curly fries are excellent also. If you can grab a seat, the place is decent for people watching. The customers are so loyal they signed a petition to get city permission to keep the place open late. I definitely recommend hitting this place up after some beer and pool just a few buildings over. There's a parking lot just behind the liquor store one block over, but if that's full, you'll have to get creative with street parking.

Pros: Excellent Hot Dogs, Cheap Eats

Cons: Lack of parking

I *love* this place, and I'm a vegetarian. Go figure. Fortunately for me, you can get any of their hotdog creations with a veggie dog, so you won't feel left out with your group of meat-eating friends. The curly fries are great as well, especially with cheese. Don't expect gourmet, just a good price and great food.

PROS: Cool hotdog concoctions, and veggie dogs, too!
CONS: None

This place has the best hot dogs I have ever had for sure. They have very creative ones too, such as the pizza dog, the Reuben, the Russian, etc. They also fill you up pretty well. The ingrediants are always fresh and the people are always really nice. One of my favorite things about Spike's, though, is their infamous hot dog challenge wherein if you eat 6 dogs or more, you win a teeshirt and you get your picture on the wall. If you eat over 13 beef dogs or 9 veggie dogs you get a tshirt, the picture, and your dogs are free. You do, however, only have 1.5 hours to do it. Bon Appetite!

It's worth trying to find a parking spot in that section of Allston or better yet hopping the Green Line over to Packards Corner for this little slice of heaven! They put things on a hot dog that you would never have imagined before, creating masterpieces! I recommend the Spikes Junkyard Dog with their own homemade spicy mustard, tomato, and hot pepper rings. But most of all it's the fresh baked sub rolls the dogs are placed in that truly make this dog unique.

Great pizza and chicken too!
