“Great Hot Dogs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2014

You have to love good food at inexpensive prices. Restuarant offers cheap beers for $1.50 or $2.00 each, then the hot dogs come in all different varieties starting at $3 each, and they have TATER TOTS. Yummmmm. Be prepared to wait for a table though. As others mentioned it is a small place. Service is always good and quick. I want to go back everytime I am downtown.

Living in a world unfair to vegetarians, we happened to go to this place which is awesome. Great options for something as simple as a hot dog! ! And awesome beer as well

“Great local dive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

With plenty of delicious variety and character in a seemingly-simplistic menu (hot dogs and tator tots make up the bulk of options), this place is a must-eat for both visitors and Columbus natives alike. If you go during peak weekend lunch hours expect to wait awhile. Pro tip: This place is tiny. If you're in a group of more than 4, drop by and get your food to go.

We had to eat here during our most recent trip through Columbus. The Thanksgiving Dog was surprisedly good. It was the best dressing I've had in years.

“great dogs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

A small bar restaurant that specializes in hot dogs. The service was slow due the amount of people that are there for the food. The place has a nice cozy pub feel to it. The hot dogs and the fries are amazing and at a very modest price too!
