Passing through stopped in. Have been by here before but never stopped. Love the big parking area, easy in/out. Ordered the footlong after asking the dumb question- "how big is it?" Friendly staff, decent meal. Retro dining room. Enjoy!

Delicious, they even divided for us with out asking as they knew we were sharing, very large dog, and so tasty, much better than the dog we shared at half moon for the same price. They bring the food to you too, fast and friendly.

I had a hotdog with onion rings. I didn't care for the chili on the dog. Wasn't seasoned enough. Wouldn't get chili again but otherwise great food. They also have pumpkin soft serve... Yum!

I have been eating here, at least once a year for over 50 years. I attended weekly prior to that. The tree weiner dog is to die for. Its just a fun place to be.
