Love the chili slaw dogs. The chili and slaw are both homemade. Wouldn't think of visiting Townsend without having at least two with chips and a cold drink. We eat out under the trees looking at the Little River. All the sandwiches are good.

The epitome of small-town convenience store. Friendly staff, great prices. Their hoagies are yummy, and their hot dogs are famous! Don't miss the BBQ and cole slaw, too!
