cozy dog drive in was the birthplace of the corn dog, the corn dogs taste great, the decor is very nostalgic of the route 66 era. the staff is very friendly and helpful.

It's still being run by the family that founded it and it's still serving up those tasty Cozy Dogs and some of the best French fries to be found.anywhere. And it's right on Historic Route 66, too.

If you're looking for fine dinning this isn't it. This little place is just a small piece of fast food history that you can find at every fair across the country now. Don't order a corn dog though, You will be corrected! They are Cozy Dogs! Good food. It's a nice place with a lot of nostalgia and you can... More

I had the special which was 2 cozy dogs and medium fries. Only $5.50! Corn dogs were cooked good. Fries were plentiful. Homemade shoestring fries were good as well.

Travelling Route 66 from the UK this was one of those places that came up time and again in our searches. We couldn't skip it so stopped for an early dinner. There was no choice for us other than the Cozy Dog. As my first ever experience of a corndog I must say I was blown away and wanted more!... More

Another of those iconic route 66 must visits! We'd heard about the cozy dog and it didn't disappoint. A different kind of fast food. Great nostalgia!

Great customer service! We got a bunch of food for $25, fed the 4 of us! I'm not really crazy about corn dogs in general, but had to try one of their fresh dipped corn dogs and it was good. Their fries were delish. Very very clean!

My entire family enjoyed this experience. Food was inexpensive and fantastic. This place is also a museum to Route 66. Great experience. Can't wait to go back.

We stopped in here to eat as part of our Route 66 road trip. Enjoyed the nostalgia of experiencing some old Americana. The corn dogs were ok and the prices were reasonable. Don't expect some mind blowing experience though ;-)

Thank kokomo27
