Bob’s Dogs opened at 8903 East Oak Island Drive on Oak Island in April of 2010 – in the middle of the Recession. Bob Kiser, owner and resident of Oak Island for over 8 years, is a NC Native from the Kannapolis-Mooresville-Lake Norman area. After selling his awards and engraving business of 30 years during which time he made thousands of trophies and awards, he was given the opportunity to fulfill a lifelong dream to live at the beach – and on Oak Island. Not ready to retire and not finding employment in the area, he decided to open his own hot dog restaurant something he had wanted to do since managing a hotdog/chicken restaurant before his awards business – can you believe the specials at that time were 3 hotdogs for a $1.00!
Since vacationing in the Florida Keys for 20+ years, there would be only one choice – to make Bob’s Dogs feel like you just walked into a Little Bit of Paradise while enjoying high quality food with homemade toppings. We have also included tropical music to enjoy while “relaxing in our dining room” with friends and family. It’s also nice to either order food to “take out” to the beach or to “enjoy a picnic” at our tiki umbrellas/picnic table area.
