My daughter and I visited..It was my first time here. I was so surprised when I walked in and sat down. The history on the walls and in the stories of the regulars made me feel at home immediately. I didn't know what to eat..The dog or the burger..So I tried both! WOW, so yummy!!! I have visited 3 times... More

In town for the first time for a school band event at the convention center and this hot dog joint was not far away when hunger pains hit my youngest daughter. There was plenty of empty seating when we arrived for a late lunch Thursday. The place has an older vibe but old school service, fast and friendly. Styrofoam cups... More

The place has been there 100 years and isn't fancy. The place was packed with locals for lunch. Our server had been there 42 years. Very friendly and everyone enjoyed the hot dogs and chili sauce and bottomless drinks.

This place is old! If it wasn't so busy, I would have thought it was a movie set. The counter is in the back past the dining room. The Burgers and dogs are made on the left end of the counter and the fries are made in the back room. The Cokes are poured from a dispenser with an ice... More

This little place is an interesting mixed bag. While you don't go in to Chris' expecting the Ritz there are some things that need definite attention. It's a shot gun type feel of a building which is weird and fun all at the same time. It is obvious the place hasn't been updated for year, which isn't necessarily a bad... More

Wow. Old and greasy, but the hot dogs and hamburgers were good, as was the service. Onion rings delicious too. Not many places like this - worth a visit.

Old and traditional doesn't allow for handling food and money simultaneously, foul smelling, trashy, and restrooms badly in need of a thorough cleaning and repair.

I grew up in Montgomery and enjoyed eating hot dogs and hamburgers here for decades. But then we moved far away. Four years ago we visited and it was as great as ever. So here we are in town again and I ordered their famous hot dogs. They are absolutely as delicious as ever. That famous secret sauce is incredible.... More
