Love the chili dogs! Best ones in town. I always get easy chili lol. Service is okay not the greatest or most friendly. Not a fan of the method of ordering or that it is cash only. There also really needs to be more locations!...More

Hot dogs with a southwest twist. Dining area is limited and small, so eat in the car or take your dog to the plaza or park nod museums close by.

I used to stop by here on my way home from school 50+years ago - food was delicious and still is today. Building was amazing also (and it is still the same building). An Albuquerque Ladnmark

The Chili-Cheese dogs here are in the top five I have had in my life, and I have traveled most of the lower 48 states. Small place with a simple menu, they serve to your car or you can sit inside. They only except cash,...More

We had to stop here and were not disappointed. Friendly service,generous portions and delicious hot dogs. Very reasonably priced and a good variety of everything. And a delicious slightly hot no bean chili topping. Yum.

Our favorite thing to do is to sit at the counter and watch the action on the grill. The chili dogs are REALLY good with a nice snap and spicy chili. The last time we were there we tried the onion rings which were crispy...More
