Although the hot dogs are not a bargain, you pay $2.30 for a small dog and small bun, they are very tasty and many families return to this restaurant when returning or revisiting Sioux City. Usually there is a line, but service is fast and I suspect they sell hundreds of dogs every day.

Milwaukee Weiner is tried and true, and Mike and John Eliades have done a super job of keeping the atmosphere warm and friendly in their new place. There is nothing like a family-owned business for caring about customers. We come back again and again, not just because it's convenient but because the food is great, too!

The people who serve are very gracious and efficient,. The line moves fast, and the crowd is impressive; but the folks in line are efficient and helpful. We liked it.

Two chili dogs and a chocolate malt. Both were tasty and repeatable. Good value. Clean. Easy walk from the Hardrock.

This is without a doubt the best hotdog in the world. Family owned for three generations. I have been eating these hotdogs for all three generations.

Hard to say why it is so good-an ordinary hot dog, lightly grilled on the flattop, onions, mustard and thin chili with a hint of spice (maybe cinnamon?) on a steamed bun. Just like it has been for decades.

Casual hot dog shop with a unique hotdog , chili. Great taste and indoor or outdoor seating. A popular place with the locals or visitors. Nothing like it outside of Sioux city
