Great "Chicago Style" hot dogs and fries! Adorable, train caboose... you can sit inside at small counter or outside at picnic tables. Really nice owners! Not a huge selection and that's what makes it so perfect. I'll go here again!

If you want a good place to eat just off the beaten path this is the place. Quiet but with still a contemporary appeal then this is definitely the place to stop at for a quick bite to eat.
