Quick hot dog joint. They make a prettu good dog like the old fashioned coney dog, plus a variety of other styles. Not fancy, but if it is a dog you desire this hits the spot.

This is a small place, with hot dogs and chili dogs. You can call it in, eat at the small restaurant, or drive thru. Good fries, too. Small menu, but good.

We used to have several places to get a good Coney Dog in Peoria, but sadly no more. Until we found The Other Dawg, good meat sauce and steamed buns. Very Good. The tamales are good also.

If you like hot dogs, this is the place. Small inside, but it also has a drive-thru window. I had a chili dog - it was very good. My kids enjoyed the visit.
