There is a new franchise location in the 555 Montgomery Rd. complex, located one intersection back from the corner of Rutland Road North and Leathead Road. Their phone number is 778-753-0220. Meanwhile, I am concerned, as I received a gift certificate to the Ellis St....More

I tried to go to the downtown location but they always seem to close before I arrived. I even called ahead to find out the hours they would be open. When I arrived a half hour before the closing time, they were closed and a...More

I went in with a friend who recommended it to me, thinking, "Hot dogs? Meh," with a sigh. Hot dogs have never been on my list of favorites, & certainly not anything I'd pay for. Upon opening the door, there was good ambient music, nice...More

Delicious mystery meat in a tube, good bun, topped with a very creative choice of toppings, from perogie to chilli, what's not to like? For serious hotdog gourmets! Oh, got kid's dogs too.
