Visited for the first time and I’m sad we didn’t find this place earlier. I ordered a ribeye sandwich, fries and a root beer. Everything was... excellent including the service. I’ll be back next year when you open back up in the spring!read more

Great service, good food, fun drive-in experience! Curly fries, crinkle cut fries (try both), and their famous root beer are must tries!

Wot-a-dog wot-a-wait. Food was okay, root beer floats were good, but it took forever for 1 burger, 2 corn dogs plus fries and tots. In the time it... took our food to arrive, three cars that arrived after us, got their orders, ate and left. I was not expecting “value menu” speed but what we experienced was a huge negative.read more

Always an excellent little spot. Service is prompt, food is delicious. Love the coney dogs, wife loved the onion rings, my daughter had nothing... because she is a picky b that only eats salads.read more

Great little stop for curbside, nostalgia, car hopping lunch. We ordered frosty mugged root beer (homemade), root beer shake (grew up calling them... creamed root beer), pizza burger, and tenderloin sandwich. The service was fast, friendly, and accurate (a plus these days). Great new find.read more

Prices were fair. The hotdogs were narrow but the sauce was tasty. The carhop was friendly, patient, with a good sense of humor. The root beer float... was enjoyed by both Maggie (my dachshund) & I.read more

Highly recommended The Doghouse burger is delicious. Root beer floats, onion rings, mushrooms, and fried pickles all delicious.
03:38 13 Jul 20
The fried pickles were the best I’ve ever had! The coneys and cheeseburgers were also great and the service was fast and friendly.

Nice choice of food and drinks. Sandwich I ordered was very good. Root beer was cold. Service was good. Only bad thing was the port-a-pot. Reminded... me of the drive when I was a teenager.read more

Great food and service! I visited wot-a-dog frequently growing up in New Carlisle 25+ years ago, glad to see they are still in business!!
15:10 02 Jul 20
Service is great and food was delicious! Was just your typical roadside drive through, but I think that's what makes it great for car trips! ... Rootbeer float is a must have!read more

Kitchie, tasty and nostalgic. Chili cheese super weiners are amazing. Tucked in where you don't expect to see it, stop by and enjoy.
22:42 14 Jun 20
It was ok, the main attraction is the old dinner feel. The food is bland to honest, I tried the Coney , and chicken sandwich. The food lacked a real... pop of flavor but the staff was very awesome and the cars you'll find there on most well lite afternoons are awesome 👌 57'Bellaire 😎. All in all of your out for a drive it's not a bad spot to enjoy a ice cream cone.read more

We have always loved What A Dog over the years. But last week we came for supper and my wife’s hot dog was stone cold. They said the condiments... made it cold. She re-ordered a coney dog with onions and cheese but it came out with no coney sauce. The next day we called and left a message for the owner or manager to give us a call with no response.read more

Best Chile dogs and root beer, or shakes! Awesome staff! Always a must have when in New Carlisle!
18:24 23 May 20
Wish I could leave zero stars. Mistake move on do not stop. WASTE OF TIME. Traveling saw write up and love to support independent. Ask for menu... tried to get 1 of 3 girls to come back to take our order waved and called out. Was ignored went to other 2 cars that pulled in regulars. We finally gave up got out of the truck gave menu card to girl taking order and left.read more

Haven't been here in 40 years....really took me back. Hotdogs, rings, and shrooms as good as ever. Will have to go back.

Was THE best experience I have had there. I swore them off two years ago but today my son really wanted their root beer so I caved and I am so happy... that I did. We will be back! Great redemption Wot a dog!!!read more

It had been some years since I have been to Wot-A-Dog and I drove some distance. Growing up it the hometown Park Layne it was always a treat. The... foot-long Coney's were Awesome! The crinkle cut fries not so much, seemed they were the bottom of the bag because, of their size. The amount was so little and didn't even fill the bags they serve them in. It is a scary time and finding the servers not using gloves or wearing masks was probably the worst of the visit. Touching the payment device to add tip and sign was handled by the waiter and had been touched by how many others??? I was nervous to say the least. Not because I think it's a dirty place but, our world is different now and we have to be careful. Prayers that no one that works there gets sick or my family and myself. Hope they make changes in that part of their business.read more

We stopped by wot-a-dog yesterday and the food was great. We drove from Cincinnati area just to get some coneys. I grew up in New Carlisle, so... Wot-a-dog was a staple. We were disappointed when it closed down a few tears ago. The new owner/manager couldn't have done a better job bringing it back. My family really appreciates it!read more

Great service, great prices and great food! Such a wonderful place to stop and grab some wieners or brats really quick!

Fun place to stop for a quick dog and root beer.

Great service! Food was hot and yummy and served pretty quickly. I thought it was a little expensive for 2 sandwiches and one order of onion rings... (and no beverages) however, we did get 2 of the biggest sandwiches on the menu (Rebelburger and Wat A Burger!) Will definitely go back!read more

I think I had the best hamburger I’ve ever had my life there. Pretty amazing, steak like.

Had a Double burger with the works. It was delicious, char grilled, fresh toppings. I love the homemade rootbeer. Great summer time rootbeer stand.... Fast friendly service.read more

Best local food ever!!! New owners really know what they're doing, great new ideas as well as keeping what makes Wot-a-Dog so great. Best root beer... ever, and the new dog bites are awesome!!read more

Great service. Our fries were crazy hot (which I love!) Root beer is house made and is to die for!
23:27 26 Jul 19
If I could do 4.5, I would. Really good food for the value. (Might want to ask light on the cheese for Coney dogs.) Regular and diet rootbeer very... good. Tots are awesome! The servers and workers do their best to serve everyone but that's small kitchen for the volume of orders going through. Be patient. It's worth it.read more

Good local food stand. Open only during summer months. Love the deep fried mushrooms.
19:12 14 Jul 19
Fast service, limited menu so you're not overwhelmed, classic drive-in fare: footlong hot dogs, coney style dogs, fries, burgers, root beer floats,... and my favorite: peanut butter chocolate milkshakes. Delicious!.read more

The grey non-meat footlong was horrible. I'd give the sauce a D, very messy the way they serve it without a paper underneath it, wrapped in foil... upside dow . Onion rings I'd give a c maybe. One footlong, regular hamburger, 2 onion rings and a small and large drink was 19 bucks. Outrageous prices. Waitstaff was great, helpful, kind and quick.read more

This is a cool drive up diner! Awesome, friendly service. Their ice cream is gluten free, short of the cookie dough.

My daughter had waitressed at Wot in 1997. We met there this month (party of 14). The waitress kept her cool and our food was just right.

Have eaten there twice this summer. Service good food really hot. Will be back!
00:24 27 May 19
Good food good price. Wot-A-Dog has seen it's share of ups and down over the last few years as ownership has been changed... but I think they found... the old grove. This is the view from the Wot-A-Dog if it were on the coastread more

I love that place, the food is so delicious, I can't wait to go back there. It makes me hungry just thinking about it. Ummm

Service and food was great..as always. Enjoy the oldies they have playing... Nice way to have a little supper. 😊

Ever since the new owner took over, things have been fantastic. The addition of a charbroiler was exactly what the burgers needed. My son is a root... beer fanatic and gives two big thumbs up to the root beer here, especially with the frosty mug. I've been there a few times this season so far, and I think they've got most of the kinks worked out. The new owner is amazingly responsive to customer feedback, and actively solicits opinions and feedback on the business Facebook page. Good job, dude, my kids and I are really enjoying this season!read more
