Nothing we are here are good. Hot dogs look like cadaver fingers. Plenty of nostalgia inside but doesn't make up for horrible food. I ate here once before, maybe 18 years ago. Just as bad as i remember. Will never go back

I have been going to Cozy Dog since I was a child. The cozy dogs have the best batter and their fries are handcut and delicious. You don't have to waste your money at the high-priced fair when you can get the best fair food...More

The home of the Cozy Dog. A great collection of memorabilia to enjoy while you wait for and enjoy your Dog.

I took my nephew here over the Thanksgiving break for a quick lunch. It was average fast food. From legend, this is where the original Corn Dog was born on Route 66. It's definitely a nostalgic place to visit.

This is a nice and clean family owned cafe that takes you back to the 60s! Cozy dogs, hamburgers and affordable prices are to be found. Great for a family with younger or older kids. Route 66 souvenirs can be found and great post cards...More

It's still being run by the family that founded it and it's still serving up those tasty Cozy Dogs and some of the best French fries to be found.anywhere. And it's right on Historic Route 66, too.
