*****Greg Freitas from Lawrence, MA, says:
I have over the 31 years I've lived in Lawrence,always loved a couple of hot dogs, and a order of French Fries.
I always associated this "culinary delight" to the City of Lawrence..I am pleased to report..Lawton's is relocating to South Lawrence, on the corner of South Union Street, and Jamaica Street, right by the Hess Gas station..Now that's a good thing, and I'm happy.....

Ace, good news - Lawton's will be opening up once again sometime this fall, as soon as they can shore up the structure.

*****ace palmer from Lawrence, MA, says:
Let me tell ya I was born in Lawrence and I've had more dogs and pizzarolls from that Lil shack than I can count. Now I live in Maine and loved the ride home for a dog; I'd yell at some of the guys in my shop, let's go I want a dog, and seconds later down the highway we would go. 45-50 mins later I've got a dog and a roll and now I'm told it's all gone so I ask you what. The. Hell. Do I do now?

CRC from North Andover, MA, says:
Long ago, when Downtown Lawrence was the center of commerce in the Merrimack Valley, I remember standing in a long line with my parents on a weekend evening at Lawtons, waiting for that special treat, a dog with "the works." The line passed through one door, by the counter, and out the other side of the tiny building. The long lines are gone, but the dogs are still just as good. "World Famous Lawton's" is worth the trip!!! P.S. Get onion rings on the side.

Brett and Chuck LaRoche from Fort Myers, FL, say:
On one of our first dates (We have been married this month for 5 years), my husband wanted to take me out to dinner. I was not from the area mind you...he said we are going to Lawton's By The Sea and I was so excited. Am I dressed ok for such a lovely sounding place and he're fine. You can imagine my surprise....I loved it!!! I NEVER eat footdogs, but after eating a Lawton's footdog I was hooked. We used to get 3 double orders, 1 for my husband, 1 for me, and one for old Shelby our dog. She grew up on Lawton's as well. ITS THE BEST!!!!

Rufus from Lowell, MA, says:
Lawtons (by the Sea) is one of the best hot dog places on the face of the planet. The works ( mustard, relish, cooked onions) are a must on the almost foot long hot dog. I hear they have other things on the menu, but in 20 years haven't tried any of them.
