Mike was a superb server, very friendly and knowledgeable. He, and Andrew, a local reporter, explained some of the history of Chris' Hot Dogs. The hot dogs were so tasty, I had several. Convenient location downtown.

This place is awesome! No better way to explain it. Old-fashioned hamburgers and hotdogs. The whole place of old fashioned. It's very reasonable also. Make a point to drop in. You have to pay a parking meter so have some change.

Best hot dog and French fries ever. Our server is there every time we come by. She is quick and efficient, love her to death. Glad we got to come by and celebrate their 💯 year in business.
