Chris' Famous Hot Dogs

Founded in 1917, Chris' Hot Dogs have been enjoyed by every walk of life. We are one of the only hot dog and hamburger restaurants in the area and the oldest family owned and operated american food restaurant Montgomery, AL. Chris’ is a place where everyone, including young and old, rich and poor, black and white, from any country are welcome and can all dine harmoniously in this wonderful institution. We’ve had customers from every state in the Union, and countless guests from other countries. Some of our more notable patrons include Franklin D. Roosevelt (who would frequently ask for a box of the world famous hot dogs as his train stopped in the Montgomery’s Union Station), Harry Truman, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Presidents Bush 41 & 43, Jimmy Stewart, Elvis Presley, Hank Williams, Clark Gable, Tallulah Bankhead, countless sports stars and every Alabama Governor since 1917.

Chris' Hot Dogs is not just known for our world famous hot dogs, but fantastic homemade hamburgers as well. Every day the Chris' staff hand pattys fresh (never frozen) ground beef that is cooked to perfection on our seasoned griddle. Our hamburgers are made-to-order and start with a freshly steamed bun and then the burger is topped with mustard, ketchup, onions and Chris' Famous Chili Sauce. Yes, we have plenty of napkins. Many of our guests order our Chris' Hamburger as part of our "1 and 1 combo" which consists of 1-Chris' Hot Dog and 1-Chris' Hamburger, Fries and a Fountain Drink.
