This is a little hole in the wall lunch spot attached to an auto repair garage. I have to say that all the hype is true! Might be the best darn milkshakes I ever had. The hot Dawgs are huge and you will only need...More

Stopped here for lunch on our way to the national park. I was a little irritated at the price at first.. $5 for a hot dog, but we're in a touristy area, so that's to be expected. The hot dogs are yummy, they put lots...More

Do you have gluten free options?

Response from Tina W | Reviewed this property |
I didn't see any gluten free buns. Not sure about the hot dogs, but I'm assuming they may be ok. They said 100% all beef. They did NOT have a vegetarian option, though. We happened to look at that.
Is the food safe to eat during pregnancy? Pasteurised milk and eggs in the shakes? Hot dogs made fresh or cooked enough to kill harmful bacteria?

Hi, we have been searching for a great veggie dog but have not been able to find one to our satisfaction. We do offer a grilled cheese sandwich, salads, and several appetizers for those who do not eat meat.
