I mostly do take out here. They of course are known for their weenies which are very good.i have also had their fries and chowder, which are also good. I have had breakfast here and enjoyed it. They do have daily specials which are very reasonable. The restaurant is clean and friendly.

Wieners are on small side and don't fill the buns. They were luke-warm and the fries were overcooked. The parking lot is tiny but that's all they need because the place never seems that busy. There a lots of wiener joints in RI, and this place is at the bottom of the list.

Very friendly staff in a unique setting. It's a diner that only accepts CASH. Food is cheap and they specialize in Hot Dogs and Wieners (which I didn't know that there was a difference). The Beef and Vegetable soup wasn't that great...but the Wieners were tasty…the fries were awesome!

Whether, breakfast eggs, weiners at lunch, or fish and chips for dinner, this place is sure to please. Food, service, laid back atmosphere is out of this world. The price doesnt break the bank either. I know if I have a little time and need a quick bite for lunch to stop here. Chris is always quick on the grill... More
