Obviously family run, minimum menu items with option and options and OPTIONS. When you peak thru the window and see the kid preping hotdogs with 12 of them running up his are, and a "family fries" that fall off of a large paper plate, you know you're in for a treat. Everything came out in minutes with the oft wished for but seldom seen small town charm and taste. Community seating outside on large picnic tables make this a must visit small town. We were in town for some family and this was a must visit that we were glad we made.

I usually don't give bad reviews, but this one is a little harsh. When we pulled up to the restaurant we found a bunch of picnic tables set up outside in the front yard. It looked more like a graduation party set up than a outside patio of a restaurant. You have limited parking behind the "house". You have to go up the steps of the side entrance to enter. The indoor dining area was full. It looks like a bunch of tables put in a living room. The people eating seemed happy but looked very cramped and uncomfortable in their seating. We had a coupon but the girl taking our order said we didn't need it. So the coupon is just advertising. The service was quite fast as they prepared it in front of you. The hot dogs were just ok this time. Not great, not juicy, just ok. The fries were a nice amount, but this time flavor to me was missing. My girlfriend got onion rings and said she will never get them again. They were soggy and smooshed down in the bad. She also spent several trips to the bathroom. The price is adequate I guess for what you get. Sometimes I think this place seems overrated. It's a house with a kitchen and living room with tables, and you get hot dogs and fries, but nothing to jump up and down about.

Great grilled hot dogs, but theyre fries are out of this world! Hubby puts vinegar on them, I do not! Or you can get chili & cheese on them....any way you eat'em theyre great!! Try a sundae before you leave, its worth it!!
They have outdoor seating in spring & summer & fall, or a small indoor area, its cute because its in a victorian home! Christmastime they put out a giant santa outside that is cute for the kiddos!

Everybody likes a good hot dog and they have them here. They are a little pricey unless you order a combo or have a coupon. I personally love their fries. I will go in just to buy them to go. On their tables they have this seasoning that I dump in the bag and shake them up. Makes the fries taste like no other. Add a soda from there and i'm satisfied. They also use to offer ice cream sundaes ect. which were good on hot days. You can eat in or outside. There is limited parking in back, so please read the street signs if parking on the street.

This a a favorite local hotdog coney style restaurant in an old century home. Family owned and operated and very famous for being close to school so local sporting events will be packed from outsiders. Also a stop in the khumar movie with whitecastle but not mentioned... the fries are a must to have get the package deal if family...
