The undoubtedly have the best hotdog, I have ever had. Fire house style with many different condiments added. Definitely would recommend FBI Fries and a Devil Dog on your visit. Best of all Very Military, Veteran, Police, Fire/EMS friendly with the entire inside posted with patches from every branch and far flung departments.

Went there today based on friends suggestions. It is a nice hot dog and sandwich stand with both indoor and outdoor seating. They have a menu with many variations of hot dogs. - see menu on website - I ordered a regular hot dog with mustard, onions, cheese and chili. To me it wasn't anything special - chili was commercial... More

This place was awesome. The food was good. We had hot dogs and ice cream. The staff was wonderful as a member and my husband being a member of EMS we were happy to see all the memorial patches on the walls. A great place to come.

Friendly people, fast service, great food and the best ice cream for dessert. You can sit at the counter inside or at the many tables outside. Your choice of type of cone and additions to ice cream are many. I'll be going there regularly this summer for the ice cream, and returning often for there delicious hot dogs.

This small restaurant attracts a family crowd, and the place is adorned with fireman memorabilia. Nice in summer for an outside seat. Hot dogs and fries are served with pride. Hats off.

Great owners and welcoming staff. Great menu of hot dogs. The sandwiches by themselves are probably a 4+ but the meat is kind of garden variety that you could buy at Shoprite. This little place could be a home run if they stepped up the hot dog itself. Having said that, I come here frequently, Captain Paul is great and... More
