AVOID THIS PLACE – WHEN I READ THE REVIEWS I THOUGHT I SHOULD GO AND TRY THIS PLACE OUT. BIG MISTAKE. THE HOT DOGS WERE SO DRY AND HAD A FUNNY TASTE TO THEM. AND THE BURGERS!!!!!!!OMG WERE BURNT AND SO DRY, PAPER THIN NO FLAVOR IF THAT BURGER WOULD HAVE FELL ON THE FLOOR IT WOULD HAVE BROKE LIKE A PIECE OF GLASS. THATS HOW HARD THAT BURGER WAS. I DONT KNOW WHO THAT COOK WAS BUT HE NEEDS TO STAY THE H......... OUT OF THE KITCHEN. PEOPLE BEFORE YOU EAT HERE THINK OF MCDONALDS. AND YOU SHOULD TRY TO MAKE A HOTDOG AT HOME BECAUSE THIS PLACE S.............
These dogs are the bomb! – I started going to the New Brighton store as a kid in the 70s (CHEAP, family-friendly dinner outings) and have been addicted ever since. Try your dog with ... cheese and kraut! My Pittsburgh-transplant husband made fun of that combo for years until he tried it. Now, it's his new favorite! Chili and cheese are also pretty heavenly.
Fries are fresh-cut and perfectly done, burgers are drippingly juicy, and you cannot beat the price. This is a don't miss Pittsburgh institution!
Editorial Review by Christy Buena – Hot dogs are the specialty at the restaurant that offers hearty breakfast platters, burgers and french fries.
No better hotdog anywhere – I was 1 year old the first time I had a Brighton Hot Dog. No matter where you move or how far, when you come home to Beaver County it's the first place I go for the best dogs, fries, root beer and shakes on the planet. 3 with chile and onions, large fry, large root beer and a shake for dessert.
Best Chili Cheese Dogs Ever – You haven't had a hot dog until you have had one from the Brighton Hot Dog Shopppes. They make their own hot dogs, fries and chili. They are prepared fresh, not put under a heat lamp. Have your tried their burgers, wow! No premade patties here.
Their milkshakes can't be beat, try an Oreo Shake. Awesome!
Go! – I grew up eating here. It's a Beaver County tradition! You must try the fresh cut fries with chili and cheese. The prices are rock-bottom. Have a great milk shake for dessert.
God's Own 'Dogs – Brighton Hot Dog Shoppes is a local Beaver County chain, and no they arent Middle English with the silly shoppes namethat drives me nutsI digressThe dogs are made especially by Armour just for the chain. The casing is crunchy (natural) and stands up to the chili perfectly. The dogs can be topped with chili, cheese, onions, and kraut. The chili and onion dog is something to behold. The onions are properly strong and remain on your person for hours. The chili is perfect for chili residing on a hot dog; it has no other proper use, at least not in polite company. The fries are righteous; these are fresh cut and can be topped with chili, onions, cheesemanna from heaven. I have only had one better dog and that was in Johnstown, PA at Coney IslandI have been to Nathans and it did not measure up.
Hot digitty dog! – The best hotdogs, best chili, best fresh cut fries, and pasta chili!!!!
What a value.
