Yesterdog’s HISTORY

How it All Began…!

In 1976 Bill Lewis decided he could build a better hotdog. And build a better hotdog he did!

We Are Famous!

Customers range from Janet Jackson and Senator Levin to the business man who drives from south of 28th Street on a regular basis to get a Yesterdog for lunch. If you haven’t been in to try a Yesterdog (or Ultra, Kraut, Cheddar, or Killer dog) you don’t know what you’ve been missing!


Yesterdog has won Grand Rapids Magazine’s Best Hotdog category every year since 1991, the year hotdogs were included in the poll. It has also been awarded the Gold Townie Award for Best Hotdog and won many awards for best hotdogs in Grand Rapids.

The restaurant’s interior takes guests back to the 1930’s and 40’s with vintage posters, an ornate hand crank cash register, an antique jukebox, and an old gramophone horn which serves as the “tip target” where customers toss their coins.
