A fan of Route 66, I had to try the Cozy Dog Drive-In! My wife and I each had 2 cozy dogs and shared an order of fries. The cozy dogs were ok. I don't particularly care for corn dogs but these were certainly acceptable....More

My husband grew up in Springfield and was frequent patron here. We don't live in Springfield but visit frequently and very often eat here. They have the best cozy dogs period! And the fries are awesome. Everything is always served hot. Very nostalgic place to...More

We stopped at this iconic Route 66 restaurant while visiting Springfield. You can watch the cooks dip hot dogs in the batter and fry them. We had a corn dog, double cheeseburger, and fries. The burger patties were thin, but very tasty. The corn dog...More

We had lunch here while in town. Heard a lot about it, and saw something about it on Food Network. Frankly, I was underwhelmed. It didn't live up to the hype. It's corn dogs. Good corn dogs, I'll grant you, but still corn dogs. I'm...More

The Cozy Dog was featured on the food channels so, yes, we had to stop. Limited menu but expected at a 'drive in'. French fries were good, hot dog was not. Route 66 and lots of other memorabilia on the walls. Will not stop by...More

This is our second time here....enjoyed it the first time but disappointed this time. The corn dog was underwhelming with flavor and the hot dog itself tastes more like the cheap dogs you buy and not sure what part of the pig you're eating. This...More

I took my three kids here as we were traveling through town to enjoy a stop on Route 66. The kids enjoyed looking around and also enjoyed to food, especially the sherbet ice cream cups;). Hours later my son realized he lost his phone and...More

This one is just fun. This stop is a local landmark. The corn dogs are coated with actual cornbread, not the sweet spongy coating you find on some corn dogs. Fun family stop- not too expensive. Not for the 'foodie'.

Sonic Drive In has corn dogs and they are cheap. There are 3 locations in town that I know of. They have a website and an app you can download. They serve you at your car window like the old car hop days from the 50's. They... More
