Nice sample of standard dogs, with some creativity in offerings. Small inside space is adequate. Service is at a counter, and is personalized and quickly done.

Not your grandmother's hotdog! These are smothered in good and tasty toppings, and they use super quality hotdogs to begin with. They are hot and fresh and delicious. Worth a try!

Best (and only) "gourmet hot dog emporium" I have ever eaten at ... My favorite is the Carolina - as a transplant from Appalachia, I was pretty excited to be able to get slaw on a dog again!

I've ate there a few times. All in all it's pretty good. Can end up being kinda pricey but it's not bad for a change of pace from your normal fast food choices. I'll go back.

I am in the process of eating through the menu. So far, everything has been great. My wife is from Chicago, but I'm not a fan of the Chicago style hot dog. But that's just me. All the rest (including the burger) are very good....More
