This place reminds me of days gone by and they have Best Chili Dogs ever! The french fries are homemade and tasty as well.

Worth the wait only if you get the hot/spicy chili dogs oh don’t forget the salt the fries need a dash or two

This place is a Tucson staple. It's cheap and fills you up. It's no 5 star but your 1 star greasy spoon and that's part of its charm. Be sure you get hot. It's not really hot just better flavor.

Found this place by driving around. Ultra cheap burgers and hot dogs. The fish sandwich was disappointing. Chili was ok. Certainly a vestige from a bygone era, so the atmosphere is something differnt.

We load the wagons and head to Pat's every few months from the far Northside to enjoy their always great dogs and fries.

Pat's wouldn't be for everybody-but for me it will be a great place to stop when my wife is busy doing something else-not her cup of tea so to speak. I like Chili Dogs (Ben's in DC is likely the best). These are good though...More
