I had to stop into the place that created the Cozy Dog. There is definitely a lot to look at inside this restaurant- signs, memorabilia, knickknacks. Customer service needs some work, but the food was good. The Cozy Dog was okay, tasted like other hot...More

Do you remember the "Hot Dog Program" on PBS from a while back. I am a hot dog fan/lover/afficianto/eater/traveler...that's it...traveler. We have diverted family vactaions hundreds of miles to get a hot dog. We...I can now check this off. My wife and I are not...More

I suppose it's a place you feel you have to visit on Route 66... that's why we went. Cashier wasn't friendly or helpful at all. FYI, one large order of french fries will be enough for 4 people... they are also extremely greasy and somewhat...More

Great old fashioned hamburgers and of course the original cozy dog! The French fries are. To die for.

We stopped for lunch on 7/1. Cozy dogs were just okay; seemed overcooked. The fries were ridiculous - limp and undercooked, yet greasy. Blah! Not what it used to be.

Great little diner! Visited here for lunch. 4 dogs and fries for right around 10 bucks. Service was speedy and food was yummy if you like corn dogs. Felt like a kid again!

Be sure to stop at this roadside classic for the corn dog or a burger or other Americana treat when passing through Springfield. A great way to get your kicks on Route 66 ... the mother road.

We stopped at the birth place of the corn dog. Very friendly staff, nice decor of the classic 66. Corn dogs were tasty and the fries were a nice compliment. A worth while stop.

I am personally not a fan of corn dogs or fries, but I am glad that we have stopped here! One more Route 66 attraction that'll take you back in time :)

Sonic Drive In has corn dogs and they are cheap. There are 3 locations in town that I know of. They have a website and an app you can download. They serve you at your car window like the old car hop days from the 50's. They... More
