During the spring I usually eat here once or twice a week. I get the large hot dog, Chicago Style or the Polish Sausage, Chicago Style. Shawn does a great job, fast service, and good food.

If you're craving a Chicago Style hot dog this is the place. Love to stop in for lunch. Great sausage too. Sit at the picnic tables and enjoy the cave creek atmosphere

Over the years he's provided us with really great dogs and great conversation. His push cart operation has moved to various locations in Cave Creek and has settled now in... More

We were out on ATVs and wanted a quick place to grab a bite. We swung by the Hot Dog guy in the parking lot of the Wild West Mall and were very happy. The service was fast and personable, the dogs and options were great, and the seating was perfect for a bite to eat in the sunshine! I... More

Thanks for the review! #We just opened up on Wednesday for Season #5 ... You said that the food was good.. Thanks! And yes, it is what it is...
