“Part of Family Tradition”
Reviewed 14 June 2012 via mobile

Rail Dog is a family favorite of ours. The food is amazing and prices are fair. Cute kitschy converted caboose. We talk about this place a lot to friends and family. I hope it continues year after year, we've made it part of our family tradition!

“Good food fast”
Reviewed 10 June 2012

Pretty good little joint off the main road if you are looking for hot dogs or polish sausage. The owner is extremely friendly and social - so socially awkward penguins might want to go elsewhere.

“My kids favorite place to eat in the Dells!”
Reviewed 7 June 2012

We decided to try this after reading reviews on tripadvisor. I didn't tell the kids, we just 'stumbled' upon it. My kids loved it. Said it was the best hot dogs ever. My dh tried the polish taco and said it was great, perfect amount of heat. Tony, the owner let us come inside and he joined us outside as well to tell us stories and gave us all postcards. I love seeing someone who loves their job. It was good food as well as entertaining. Bravo!

“Food with entertainment”
Reviewed 5 June 2012

Rail dog is run out of a cabose thats full of character and is quietly located off the main strip. The food was good, though a little smaller on the portion size, and the owner was entertaining. The place was clean, and we found it relaxing to have lunch away from crowded broadway. We will return here next year.
