A busy place, with great hot dogs! Everything cooked per order. Old photos on the wall; memorabilia - Lucy & Ethel ... Elvis Presley, etc. I believe this place is owned by a retired Vet. SUPPORT! Your stomach will be glad you did.

My husband & his friend seemed to rather enjoy this place. A bit greasy for my stomach. Family friendly, nice service.

The cashier was nice, but the steamed bun was hard on the ends (go figure), and the chili was dry enough that it fell off my hot dog. The hot dog was not very tasty. My husband had the fried catfish sandwich--he said that was...More
