Great little place to eat if you have to know where it is. You never realize how many ways a hot dog can be prepared. One must do is you can order it steamed, burnt, or chared. Burnt is deep fried, suprised not greasy, crisp...More

Had a cheese-stuffed bacon-wrapped dog with Chili-Cheese-tater tots. Was very good and pretty cheap. Great selection of beer. I'd go again.
