Service was horrible, the wait to be served and get our food was horrendous and when we mentioned this serveral times to several servers we were told this is their busy time. I'd just assume if you know when your busy time is you'd be prepared to handle the volume for better service. Food, drinks were forgotten, one meal was... More

Not a particular fan of hot dogs, I'd driven past this busy little place many times. A friend talked about how much fun he had there, and another friend suggested we try it. Greeted cheerily, we were seated and given menus and suggestions about what we might want to order. The selection is limited, frankfurters and hamburgers mostly, with the... More

I went here with a friend for lunch. I had the hot dog "special", which consisted of a regular dog ($2.19), fries($1.79), and iced tea($1.79) for $5.59. Do the math. It ain't much of a special.

We've been here a handful of times, and every time, we ask ourselves why. It's not bad, just not good either and we always have waited a long time. Nothing worth writing home about.

The service has gone down hill, the portions are smaller and the food is not good since it sold and the staff has changed.

We have been here several times since it opened years ago. We usually go once a month. When the previous owner was in charge it was friendlier than it is now. The food is still great but staff just isn't as friendly/chatty, it's like it is more of a job for them and the previous staff had the happy look... More
