The food was very good, while the service people were friendly and fun to be around. The girls brought us our food in bikini's and on roller skates. I loved the foot-long as Debbie fed it to me on the deck. Good prices too!

This roadside stand has been a staple in Naugatuck for many years. The hotdogs are great with tantalizing relishes. They also have the prerequisite hamburgers fries and specials. The only thing missing is unsweetened ice tea. Nothing fancy here, located on a busy and noise...More
