I come here occasionally when I get the hankering for some dogs and fries. Fry cooks behind a Formica counter. Fixed padded stools at the counter. An actual phone booth with working payphone. What's not to like?

Glad we stopped at this little diner. Friendly staff willing to make whatever we wanted even if it wasn’t on the menu! (We ordered off the menu.) Fast service! Bottomless coffee. Sadly, Never made it back for dogs:(

Mike's consistently makes great hot dogs "all the way" and fries. It's also a fun visit to the diners of old where the bar stools swivel, the French fry mascot stands by the door, and burgers are flipped in front of you. 😃
