It's only a hot dog. I got a chili and a kraut dog! Great dogs and decor. The staff does not bother with interaction with the customers much, but are friendly and helpful if approached.

The dogs are okay and apparently you are not suppose to even order them without a topping. It is dogs, chips and a drink that is it, BUT what you go for is the place. It is larger than you would expect and it is the decor that is interesting, from the photographs, to the cash register, signs, all retro. Your certainly will not go for the service, they are rude at best. The place is a mob scene at times and if you do not line up correctly, order correctly and move along, the people get down right angry. They do not take into consideration that you maybe new there, so be prepared to know the type of dog, walk right up to the counter, tell them, wait to be asked about your drink and chips, when the food is on your tray, pay and run away to a seat where you can enjoy the retro surroundings.

OK... if you are a hot dog snob... if there even is such a thing, you MAY night be a huge fan of this place. The atmosphere is retro, the service is so/so, the quality of ingredients is not the best in the world. All that being said, I always have to go there whenever I am in town and I LOVE it. My wife gets the cheddar dog and an ultra dog. I actually get the veggie dog. All the ingredients, minus the dog. SUPER good even though it sounds bland, it is actually fantastic. Their kraut and relish are great and somehow, they make average quality buns taste great too! They steam them perfectly.

Definitely try it if you are in GR... remember to throw a quarter in the tip funnel!

Simply the best chili dog in Michigan, no two ways about it. Very dive-y restaurant, but thats part of its charm.

Want a basic dog for cheap? This is your place. I feel like Oscar Mayer dogs are a step up from the dogs they use here but the simplicity is the catch. Only a handful of menu items allows you to be served within a minute or two. The chili dog could use some spice. Worth saying you've been here but might taste better post-10pm.
