“Special not so special”
Reviewed 17 March 2014 via mobile

Ordered the Footlong special with loose meat Chilli, cheese onion rings and slaw with mixed results. The dog in the Footlong was of terrible quality and ruined the sandwich. So I ate the rings and some of the loose meat that was just so so. The slaw I ordered put on the side was OK and cut very fine. The Chilli cheese fries were less than OK as they were whimpy and limp versus crispy. The black and white shake however was super thick and as good as it gets. Next time I will just order a shake and be happy.

“Hot Dog Life”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

If traveling in the area a must stop for hot dog lovers. You can get a dog almost anyway you want. My favorites - a slaw dog, a loose meat burger all the way and a thick vanilla shake to dunk my fries in. I have been going here since the 70's. They have more choices than just burgers and dogs. If you go at lunch time (12pm) it will be crowded!!! You can dine inside or sit outside under covered area.

“Neat Nostalgia”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

Drove 38 miles after people raved about this eatery. We love a good hot dog and have eaten them all over this country. However, they were just OK. Didn't seem to be cooked for any length of time except to lukewarm. I will say the coleslaw was very good.
Employees very friendly and gave us the feeling we were part of the community. A nice switch from what we've been seeing lately in restaurants.
