Although the dining area isn't big and wait times aren't short, THESE DOGS ARE WORTH IT. The place is a very small shack that you may not even notice at first but it is swimming with customers just waiting for a world famous hot dog. Every time I have eaten here I have had a very pleasant experience, friendly staff... More

This place has been here since world war 2. It is not plush but, the Chili Dog is to die for. Parking is tight so get there early 11AM!!

You have to visit this restaurant if you love good old fashion American food. A very simple menu done right, my favorite is chili mustard onions and slaw dog! Their sweet tea is also spot on perfect. The only drawback is there's usually never a place to park.

I've been coming to Brandy's and formerly Betty's for 20+ years. The recipe for the chili is spicy but it is the best chili I've ever had on a hot dog. The restaurant is small and first come first serve. It gets really busy around noon, so expect a wait. The owner is always there and is a sweet woman.

The place is a dump. It is located in an un-renovated 50's vintage drive-in type of place with an unpaved parking lot. Getting into the place for lunch is a large challenge. Even getting off the road into the parking lot is a challenge. Why? Because it consistently serves some of the best dogs & fries you will ever eat... More

this joint has been here since, well since the railroad first went by or close. they do a good job of keeping the shine on it though. do yourself a favor and sit at the bar and watch they prepare your chili dog. i bet they can crank out 20 a minute if not more. the chili is thin, goes... More

Realize what the place is. This is not health food, no gluten free options. This is pork hot dogs, chili, rings, fries etc. clothespin on your aorta kind of food. excellent for what it is. I had chili slaw dogs (mustard, onions, chili, slaw). Chile is spicy enough to have a bite but not just hot for the sake of... More

this place is unique. they have been serving the best in hot chili dogs here since the war. yes that war, maybe before. smack dab in the railroad tracks. they have their own rail road barriers at entrance and exit, so if a train is going by while you are trying to arrive or leave take a dose of patience....
