Love the chili dogs! Best ones in town. I always get easy chili lol. Service is okay not the greatest or most friendly. Not a fan of the method of ordering or that it is cash only. There also really needs to be more locations!...More

I used to stop by here on my way home from school 50+years ago - food was delicious and still is today. Building was amazing also (and it is still the same building). An Albuquerque Ladnmark
