Finally stopped here after living in eastern PA for 17 years. It has been a place that people have raved about, but it did not deliver to my expectations. Number one, they are cash only, without an atm on site. Since it's in the middle of nowhere, this is incredibly inconvenient. Second, the indoor eating area is unheated, or barely heated, which makes eating in the winter months uncomfortable.

Next, the hot dogs aren't that impressive... as I have had better "dirty water dogs" in NYC or Chicago. The dogs are smallish, and the buns are pretty bland. They only offer four toppings: onion, mustard, ketchup, or pickle relish. I will say that the fries were tasty, and one of the plentiful portions given. The birch beer was good too!

Hot Dogs are cooked in peanut oil and are the greatest. Have been going here for over 40 years. Never miss a chance to stop.

Always a great & consistent hot dog, get the pickle & onion topping. A cold root beer & fries, perfect!

This is a ideal example that in New Jersey, you don't need a great product to attract customers. While the scenery is beautiful, the food is average at best. Not bad, but average. On the weekends, the lines are incredibly long which is still mind boggling.

Came in for lunch. My sister loves the hotdogs & fries. The ice cream is ok. I have had a lot better. Not sure I would come back. I don’t usually eat this stuff.
