Stopped here for a light bite on Halloween as we toured Salem. The place is just as advertised - lots of choices of fixin’s but at the base are good quality hot dogs on fresh rolls at really reasonable prices. Lunch for less than $5!

I went all in and ate the Chicago dog with everything on it. Yum, yum! All together the flavors were awesome. Don't change it. Just eat it. Great craft root beer on the side, too!
