      Thanks for the response. Yelp says they are closed. HAve you been lately? is it seasonal?

        I was there in January. Nice traditional hot dog place. I had the chilidog (<$3) and it was fine.

          One of the locations closed... I'm 99% certain the Drum Hill location is still going strong.

          1. re: folkface

            Is this the location that you think is open? I found 2 phone numbers for them online and both are disconnected?

            Elliot's Famous Hot Dogs
            83 Parkhurst Road # 17
            Chelmsford, MA 01824-1500

              Right in Lowell around the corner from Battambang market

                I think that's the original, on Elliot st. The Drum Hill location is long gone.
                Is Wakefield too far for you? If not Freds Franks, the stand on the rotary at exit 40 off of 128 ispretty great. Pearl franks grilled on Big Green Eggs.

      2. Also, Sausage King on Main st. in Downtown Nashua. (near where the river intersects with Main St.) has standard ballpark dogs and 10 to 15 "Gourmet Dogs", plus all the fried ballpark-style sides.
        And of course, Italian sausage with peppers and onions.

        1. Also Sandy's Lunch Box in Pepperell on rt 119 (where 119 and 111 meet) has a great reputation. Owned by the same folks as the Scotch Pine Inn.
          Further south of that area but still on rt 119 in Littleton is Ed's Weenies, located in the parking lot at Gary's Farm Stand.
          I live in Chelmsford, and the Elliot's location at Drum Hill has been closed for a while. Replaced by a small diner. (in a strip plaza)
          Not sure about Sullivan Farms on Rt 113 in Tyngsborough...they are an ice cream stand that sells hot dogs. I have never ordered them there.
