The Fourth of July makes me want a hot dog real bad. From neighborhood grill outs to baseball game brats, summer really is the season of the hot dog

That’s why we asked you for your favorites, and rounded up 5 local spots to get your frank fix.

Skins Hotdogs, Multiple locations 

  • Since 1946, Skins has been the Upstate’s go-to for a dog, stepping into Greenville in 2000. 
  • Pro tip: Try your dog with the secret recipe chili + a side of homemade coleslaw. 

Palmetto Fine Foods, 1209 Laurens Rd. 

  • This joint opened in 1959 serving “chilidogs” + has expanded its offerings (think: salads and Greek specialties like gyros) while keeping the staples.
  • Pro tip: If you like your hot dogs deep fried, there’s a corndog on the kids menu.

Resident Dogs, Food truck 

  • Known as the “Hot Dog Queen of Greenville” Meredith’s funky toppings on tasty dogs bring a twist to an American classic
  • Pro tip: Grab your fix at the new Resident Diner (327 S. Main St., Travelers Rest) or Resident Diner Express (located at Gather GVL)

Rambos Hotdogs, Food cart 

  • Established in 2019, catch this hot dog cart around town, slingin’ Nathan’s all-beef franks.
  • Pro tip: Follow Rambos on Facebook to know where to find them next.

F-Mart, 4268 Geer Hwy., Marietta 

  • A fan describes the hotdogs at the F-Mart as “out of this world.” 
  • Pro tip: If hot dogs aren’t your thing, another fan called the burgers the “best in the Upstate.” 


Costco, 1021 Woodruff Rd.

  • While it may not be a local spot, several of you wrote in about the $1.50 Costco hot dog combo, available on Woodruff Road. 
  • DYK: It’s been a buck fifty since 1985?

We’ll be frank, we know GVL has more hot dog spots to offer. If your favorite didn’t make the list, let us know.
