Born from the notion, America loves a great Hot Dog, SPIKE’S is here to satisfy that taste – provided by a friendly & enthusiastic crew in a fun, clean and comfortable environment where you’ll love to come meet your friends.

Bob Parsons, known to many from Jake’s, McCormick & Schmick’s, the Benson Hotel, and most recently the University Club – and Spike Friedman, the guy behind ApplePie Audio, a local business consultant and entrepreneur… have joined forces to build SPIKE’S, a brand new Hot Dog restaurant concept. We anticipate opening more SPIKE’S soon in and around the Portland area … followed by additional locations throughout the United States… and around the globe!
(Frankly speaking, we don’t want you to ever go without a Spike’s.)


Both Bob and Spike have been chewing on this idea for quite some time and believe there is certainly a void in the Hot Dog restaurant market – something you’ve been missing!

“We’re offering folks a fun and friendly place specializing in high quality Hot Dogs – featuring a 20 FOOT FREE CONDIMENT ISLAND so people can customize their meal just they way they want it” Bob says. And Spike adds, “Our special array of 12 custom made 1/4 pound dogs (made right here in Oregon) are the best in the business. They’re served open face on a huge, fresh steamed Hoagie bun that you can enjoy dining in or for take out. We’ve also created a great Hot Dog Chili, Coney Island Sauce and the very best Apple Pie you’ve ever had! You’ll also enjoy a whole bunch of other unique assorted goodies on our bill of fare!

Spike’s is a really comfortable place to come by yourself, or to meet with friends..
