Perhaps part of me remembers our visit to this place less favourably due to to look on the woman behind the counters face when we asked if dogs were allowed inside (because after 6 weeks of traveling around Germany, this was one of the few places to refuse, and definitely the least 'fancy' to do so). It was probably the same look we would have got for asking if we could just rub the pan of readymade sweaty hotdogs all over our dogs faces before returning them to their container, ready to serve to the rest of the customers (oh, there weren't any..)

So, apart from that. I don't understand why this place has such good reviews? Is rubbish American food not commonplace in Leipzig? The interior is nice in an overly hipster fashion, but even for €2 the hotdogs are bad. I regretted ordering them immediately as I watched her hastily stick her hand in and fish around in the sweaty metal, grasping at the cheap, anaemic "meat" sticks. The toppings were the best bit, but they too turned to mush as we ate them, outside, as the rain started to pour on ourselves and our miserable old dogs.

I don't expect much for a €2ish hotdog, but given that we had been to Conne Island the same week and had a farrrr better (and actually MEATY) hotdog for the same price, cooked by friendly people, with lashings of self service sauce, I'd have expected better.

So, a nice interior, nothing else. maybe go here if you want super fast but non filling food. Or to update your instagram with a fancy wallpaper. Or go to the shop and buy a jar of hotdogs and some bread rolls and feed yourself for the week on the same kind of quality of food you get here.

Lovely place with a laid back atmosphere, this cosy bar manages to pack a lot into a small place with a stage above the bar and a great selection of hot dogs, which are tasty and good value for money

What a pleasant surprise to find a little cosy bar which sells Hot Dogs (frankfurt sausages in a bread roll) for who does not know. The interior Decor which had gold leaf and burgundy floral wallpaper It was trendy and so relaxing on a sunny day. I ordered a ice cold drink and relaxed by a nice little wooden table near the door, and watched the rest of the guests outside sitting by their tables.

The light shades where gold leaf and gave off a nice sparkle in the room the music was good also.

I recommend this place if visiting Leipzig.
