I saw some negative reviews. It was clean when we were there and the staff was friendly. I don't have a problem with a handwritten sign I guess--if I want a place that looks like every other I could go to Mc Donalds. My husband had the Italian beef. He says this is the best one he's found since we... More

This place used to be good and clean. Now it's obvious the owners are tired and have given up. There are so many hand made signs stuck up every where with specials and "soup of the week" and "dog of the day" and "meat of the month". You get the idea. And the hand scrawled sign "DO NOT THROW AWAY... More

Just like the title indicates, the Italian beef combos are awesome. And actually, I tried the grilled chicken sandwich as well and was pleasantly surprised that it had seasoning on it that make it taste great. This place knows how to do it right.

I love their fries! I like them best well done and crunchy! They have some great soup too. Pretty much everything on the menu is good. The guy that takes the order doesn't write anything down (sometimes he has to ask about toppings, but he always gets the order right). The man at the register writes on each bag and... More

This is a small mom and pop place---we were in the area--and stopped in for hot dogs....First of all, the place could be cleaner! It could be a bit cheaper. And, what kind of hot dogs are they serving? Could use a major remodel. I doubt returning.

This a family owned restraunt and they are great! They make one of the hotdogs in the burbs...it is actually a hidden gem. I enjoy the gyros, too. They no longer serve steak fries, which is a little disappointing. Mr. Pup does have a breakfast menu, but I have tried anything off of that menu.

WHen I go to Mr. Pup I normally get the Farmers Steak Sandwich, with Steak Freis. Personally I like Steak Fries, it's an actual Fry, not one of these thin fries or the ones that they coat to make crunchy. It's a potato, fried properly, it's crunchy. If you hzave to put a counting on it to make it crunchy,... More

Mr. Pup is an independently owned and operated fast food spot with very good food, a large variety of choices. The kitchen is right where you place your order and is open where you can see everything that is going on with your order. It is clean and well kept, run by nice people. What more could you ask for,... More

The food was actually pretty good for fast food service. The people are very nice and friendly. I have so far tried the gyro, Italian beef with fries and both were REALLY GOOD!
