Stopped by for a quick bite while heading on a long trip south. Yank's is gone and there's something called Mamma J's Take Out there now. On Sunday afternoon they were closed; I don't know if they're closed for the day, the season, or forever....More

A really fun place!! It's obvious that the owner (s) is obsessed with hot dogs and toppings. They try to make everything perfect. We enjoyed it very much.

Yank's is my choice when I'm hungry and in a hurry. The food is consistently good, the service is fast, the owners are two of the nicest people you'll ever meet, and the place is always spotlessly clean. My favorite is the chili dog, but...More
