Casper's offers some of the best hot dogs around. It's the real deal for hot dog aficionados! They have been around for decades and have provided consistent food throughout! The hot dogs are fresh & tasty and the topping(s)/condiments are awesome. They steam the buns (adds to the flavor), they offer foot long dogs (AND to the yelper who claimed bun was too short...Yes they're supposed to be that way!) and the tomato & onion toppings are cut fresh to order/& throughout the day. Fresh Fresh Fresh! My family and I have frequented the PH location forever, it seems, and I have been to the Walnut Creek location too many times to count. They used to have a Concord location way back when but after a recent search it seems to be closed, which is too bad for locals nearby (*yelpers please msg me if this location has moved*). While we admit that the décor may seem outdated to some, we think its endearing and adds atmosphere/character. They keep prices down by focusing on the food not some flashy glitz. It is definitely an old-school diner-style place that employ's "older" or "eccentric" workers at times. But it adds to the charm of the place. For those of us who've eaten here for years, we get it. They put out a limited menu, they do it as fast as they can, and YES these locations are very busy and if the ladies/guys like to talk to the customers, so be it! The product is worth the wait. It's open long hours and for a person who likes an option other than a fast food drive-thru, it's awesome. We love the classic Casper Dog, but also order the Cheese dogs, the double dogs and the classic chili cheese dogs. Our orders have always been handled with care, made specifically to what we ordered and the worker never ever showed any type of attitude. A couple times they've even wrapped up a few broken hot dogs (no charge too) for our own "Hot Dog" Murphy! Thanks for that! :-) The place is always kept clean and neat. There is a private parking lot, and at peak times it fills up, but there is also un-metered street parking.
