I grew up on these hot dogs, and they are a real treat when I get home to visit. Onion rings, cheese balls and chicken are all great too, but you have not lived until you have tried a bob's dog with the works.

The Bob dog, tavern, malts, and shakes can't be beat for a fast food place. We buy the Bob dogs, freeze them, and take them to KC to our son who grew up in LeMars! You can take the kid out of LeMars but he...More
