Great little hot dog place. Among my favorites. They don’t ball when you order your dogs without bread. Totally solid! Yum!

A busy place, with great hot dogs! Everything cooked per order. Old photos on the wall; memorabilia - Lucy & Ethel ... Elvis Presley, etc. I believe this place is owned by a retired Vet. SUPPORT! Your stomach will be glad you did.

My husband & his friend seemed to rather enjoy this place. A bit greasy for my stomach. Family friendly, nice service.

What is not to like, simple straight forward burger and dogs. Sure it is greasy and messy but that is an expectation and what makes it good. The crinkle cut fries was just icing on the cake and very affordable for the average joe.
