We all had great hot dogs (I liked the one with kraut) and then enjoyed ice cream at the adjoining coffee shop/ laundromat. Hip place to hang out in Alpine.

Always try to stop here whenever I'm in Alpine. Great dogs, nice people and very fair prices. Probably have been there four or five times. Right in the center of town.

Very good dogs! Saw this on the Daytripper and wanted to try it. We were not disappointed. The hot dogs were very good. Too many to choose from! It does get a line at lunch but they do a good job moving you thru and...More
