When we heard the home of the original corn dog was in Springfield, we had to visit when we were in town. It is an interesting small restaurant, and filled with Route 66 memorabilia. I thought their Cozy Dogs were good, but not great. I...More

We stopped for a quick lunch while in town, exactly what we expected. The homemade cheese sauce was great for 80 cents. Fresh cut fries. Very cute Route 66 decor. Definitely feel like you stepped back in time.

Love the Cozy Dogs!!! And the fries are amazing too! If you like nostalgia, this is a great stop. Route 66 history galore.

The food was cheap but not very healthy. We ate here since it was a Route 66 site and popular online. It was nice to sit and look at all the memorabilia the restaurant had.

Good thin burgers, hand cut fries, and I think "hand beaded" cozy dogs. I'd recommend going here rather than fast food places.

We loved it here so much that we ate here twice during our week stay in Springfield. It is a RT 66 icon. Hot dogs of all kind.

Well worth a visit. The original Cozy Dog.No thrills cozy dogs. Very tasty. You'll never eat a fairground corn dog again after eating here.

Our son loves corn dogs so when I saw this place we had to stop. The girl at the counter taking orders was so unfriendly! You would think if your business is on the maps for "birthplace" of the corn dog you're going to have...More

Sonic Drive In has corn dogs and they are cheap. There are 3 locations in town that I know of. They have a website and an app you can download. They serve you at your car window like the old car hop days from the 50's. They... More
