“Good dogs, bad service.”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

The hot dogs are great (try both styles) with plenty of toppings to try. The black and blue steak salad is outstanding. The beer selection is solid. The service is always mediocre to bad. Give it a try; the food and prices are worth it.

“Eh....it's ok”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

We wanted to try someplace new in the area, and this came highly recommended. The server was nice. We were seated promptly. Many of the beers they had advertised were out of stock. Some of the toppings for the hot dogs were not available either. It was a little pricey. The hot dogs were ok. There is a pretty decent menu of other things. The burgers and chicken sandwich that other in our party were good. The fries were told to me to be some of the best ever, but they were actually pretty soggy and over cooked. Anyway, a neat place to try once, but I don't think I'll go back.

“Great place for lunch”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

This place serves more than hot dogs. The menu has quite a variety and we found it an economical place for lunch. The service is good and the cook came out after we were finished to see if we liked the food. That doesn't happen very often. The menu includes soups and sandwiches. The kiebasa sausage sandwich is a great choice. The bowl of potato bacon soup could have been a lot hotter. We would go here again and I am sure it is packed during the tourist summer months. In October there was no wait and not many customers. This restaurant was recommended to us by a Sandusky native.

“A different kind of place...”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

Definitely not your ordinary place. A variety of different menu items, a nice clean atmosphere with a back deck and you can watch them cook your meal in the open kitchen. Good beer selection too.

“Unusual fare, filling and creative”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

Gourmet hot dog places are few and far between, but this one shows the concept can work. The double dogs are the best value, as one dog can be pretty expensive. Fries are good and flavorful. New York Dogs are my favorite. Atmosphere is roomy and out-of-town NFL games are available.
