There’s no better way to embark on your Loneliest Road discoveries than with a Fernley Dog or specialty Mushroom Swiss Burger in tow, so be sure to make Yvonne’s Hot Dogs your first official Highway 50 stop. Situated in the heart of historic Fernley at the junction of US 95 and Highway 50, this hot pink hot dog stand beckons road trippers off the Loneliest Road. And with one look at the menu, it’s easy to see why this quick roadside stop is a tried-and-true fave for visitors and locals alike.
Offering up a wide range of American drive in-style classics like hot dogs, burgers and milkshakes, stick to can’t-go-wrong menu ballpark staples like the House Dog or Classic Burger. Or go for treat-yourself specialities like the Holy Toledo! hot dog or Silver Spur Burger, then choose from a dozen milkshake flavors—like fresh strawberry, pineapple, or Heath Bar—to wash it all down. No matter where you land, all Yvonne’s Hot Dogs are hefty, ¼ pound all beef jumbo franks served on a fresh, steamed bun, along with handmade 100% angus beef burger patties that don’t disappoint. Make any meal a combo by adding fries, garlic fries, onion rings, tots and a milkshake or fountain drink, and don’t forget to ask about vegetarian-friendly options, too.
Yvonne’s Hot Dogs is open five days a week from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM Tuesday through Saturday. Closed Sundays and Mondays.
