The corn dog was invented in Rockaway Beach, Oregon by husband and wife team George and Versa Boyington in the late 1930s. The Boyington’s ran a small hot dog stand on the beach, selling the dogs to tourists and locals alike. When the rain came and ruined the buns, George Boyington came up with the idea of cooking a “bun” as needed. He created a pancake batter based mix and the duo came up with the formula still used today.

A favorite, to catch on days they are open. Check Ahead for all coastal delicious favorites, add extra time to relax... and enjoy. Love These Pronto Pups! They have different flavors these days, but the original I've loved since a child. They have ketsup and mustard.read more

So fun, several options we had regular pups with a side of gravy and mini kids pups, tots & fries! Fun and kids rode... the corn dog ride! Worth a family friendly stop. Clean restrooms, outdoor seatingread more

Been wanting to go for years but finally did. Husband loved it. It was good just not as good as i think i hyped it up... to be in my head but it is so cool to know that they still use the traditional method. And it was cute that the wait staff still dressed in the attire. We tried a spicy pup which my husband was a big fan of. ( would have been more of a fan if the dog didn't have a hard skin) we also got a cheddar pup which was awesome. Can't wait to try the pepper jack pup. Then we got the regular pup which was everything he hoped for.read more

My wife loves this place just be aware that they have random hours. She misses out on going here most of the time we... visit because they are closed. Don't trust the Google hours or their hours on their website as they don't always match.read more

The wait was very short, even though they only allowed two or three people in at a time to be Covid safe. The corn dog... was not as sweet as I generally like my corn dogs, but if you like a savory one you’ll love this one. There’s parking across the street, so don’t try and fit into one of the three spots in front of the place.read more

If you enjoy fair like corn dogs and helping the local community Pronto Pup is fast and easy. Outside seating on large... picnic tables, small groups may need to share tables. Extra parking across the street. The menu is very limited to corn dogs, fried pickles, fries and tots. One of the cheapest ways we fed our family of 5. They have a system down and are very fast. Dog friendly outdoor seating.read more

Seems that this place is always closed when we are in town. This time we thought we lucked out. Corndogs were... terrible... way to salty. The batter had zero flavor besides salt. We got Corndogs for 6 people. None of us finished them. Not a SINGLE person appeared happy in anyway. Pretty disappointing.read more

This place was great. With really good corn dogs. And really reasonable prices. It is also up for sale.
00:56 18 Apr 21
Lots of out door seating, nice servers. Good variety for being a hot dog stand. Good size for the price too.
20:57 02 Apr 21
The prices were ok, the size of the dogs were good. My only complaint is that two of our items were not completely... cooked. There was raw batter on one hot dog and on the fried dill pickle. It was still tasty, but it would have been better if it was cooked throughout.read more

So good. Best corn dog anywhere. Wish they were open more often. Also worried they'll be closing. Business is for sale.
23:06 14 Mar 21
It's okay good customer service but I wish the batter was sweet on the corndogs

Love the look, but hours vary so much we never know when to catch it open. The pronto pups we had weren't very good. ... If we go again, we'll try the ones that are a step up.read more

Excellent place and product. What's the difference you say? A corn dog is corn meal. A Pronto Pup is pancake batter!... Invented right here in Oregon. Great to have them back.read more

Would have probably loved it, but closed except weekends! Probably a pandemic thing, but still really disappointing.

Great Corn Dogs. A must stop.. great service.
03:34 28 Aug 20
Good corn dogs and tots with fast friendly service at a decent price.
01:33 27 Aug 20
It's been 15 or 20 years since I've had a Pronto pup. It was just as good as when I was a kid.

My family and I really loved this place! Original, spicy, zucchini, pickle, or cheese pups! They are all awesome!
05:39 02 Aug 20
Amazing corn dogs, had a spicy and a cheddar cheese dog, both were deliciously crunchy, popping with rich flavors
03:46 30 Jul 20
Just darn good corn dogs! The tater tots were okay and the cheese pups great. But it's all about the corn dogs. Will... have to return for more and the pickle pups!read more

First time eating here! Perfect snacks to tide us over before heading to the Tillamook Cheese Factory! The prices are... very reasonable and the service was fast! Corn dogs were delish!read more

The kind folks at DeGarde informed us, hardcore corn dog lovers, that this magical place was so close to Tillamook.... Holy cow, what a fun treat for anyone who lovesv the best #$5@*!? food on a stick! Visiting in a pandemic didn't dampen our spirits even with a bit of rain. The service was great, the staff were kind and patient, and oh boy, the large dog and a small fry were HUGE! What a gem.read more

Loved Proto Pup! Excellent corn dog. Got the spicy pup. Huge corn dog, great crispy exterior, and great tasting... sausage. And I appreciate that they care about their customers enough to enforce the mask requirement! Will definitely go back!read more

Great people great food staff is friendly I saw some of the other reviews HONESTLY!! Don’t pay attention to them!! ... People are just entitled if you don’t have a mask then go eat somewhere else of better yet!! Stay home hahaha. Overall food was A++++. Customer service A++++ we appreciate you all working during this pandemic! Drove from Newberg Oregon and we loved the way you all treated us. Even tho we didn’t have mask only one person from our party did rules are rules.read more

My granddaughter couldn’t wait to go get a corn dog here. She was starving and we made her wait until we got to Pronto... Pup. They wouldn’t serve us because they require masks! We will no longer recommend or eat there ourselves! It’s a sad time of life and really hard to explain to find something to eat!read more

Drinks are good,food is yummy the owner is great!

A little spendy but pretty tasty dogs. Great place for a quick stop on 101. Kids will love it.

Fun roadside stand. Cost us $22 for 3 of us. We got them to go and walked to the beach
14:47 17 Mar 20
New owners, not the same quaint welcoming experience it was. The food wasn't good either.

Absolutely a spot worth visiting, the food is awesome and fresh, the cost is fair and it is always well kept there.... Kudos.read more

The OPP has never been open whenever I come around, which has been during various weekend/holiday trips to the Beach.... The dream is alive to eat one of these pups given my love for the MN state fair pronto pups and the original must be the best. Come on OPP, feed me just once.read more

One of our favorite places to go, especially in the winter. There is now a park fee, but well worth it, especially for... locals. Winters are exciting as the tides come crashing up over the jetty, the sea roils, and the winds howl. It helps that we can experience it all from inside the car. ;) In the summer it's fun to watch the fishing boats go in and out of the bay, say hello to seals and seagulls, and sometimes watch the Coast Guard go out on a rescue (or hopefully just a practice mission).read more

The food was fresh and the service prompt. So tiny you almost miss it, except for the giant corn dog on the roof. The... fact that it's the home of the Original was fun too. Just be aware, these are Huge corn dogs! Not your frozen food variety ??read more

We love Flamingo Jims!! The store has so many great gifts and a happy vibe. We never walk out empty handed whether it... be delicious salt water taffy or the many little nick knacks they carry. Everything about Flamingo Jim's is awesome!! We purchased 3 stunt kites here and 3 yrs later they are still in great condition.read more

The pickle dog was awesome. None of the dogs I tried were bad. It was a fun place to bring our kids.
03:56 24 Jun 19
Historical location in regards to "battered dogs" but is the original better than the hand dipped corn dog.... Not... really. The pancake batter they used is not bad but I miss the corn batter of normal corn dogs. It is a texture and taste thing that the pancake batter can't match. The pronto pup is perfectly cooked and a they used tasty hotdogs, but give me a hand dipped corn dog anyday over these pancake batterers dogs.read more

Great little place but awesome food here though!
