If your in the mood for a hot dog, don't miss the hot dog king. Best chili and cheese dog in the world. Relaxed atmosphere. Easy dress code and priced reasonable. Homemade deserts if wanted. Best cheese fries in town. Enjoy

Been going there for years---the dogs are perfection! I especially enjoy the creamy Cole slaw on top of the chili! Hot fries and tasty iced tea complete a great meal! Sauerkraut ain't bad,either!! Of course, I'll be back again soon...Wait staff members are wonderful, too.

This was our first time ever at Gus's even though we've been living here for 17 years. They were celebrating their 44th year in business and it was easy to see why they've been around for such a long time. We've had lots of unpleasant...More
