“Best Dog and Fries Ever!”
Review of Mike's Restaurant

Mike's consistently makes great hot dogs "all the way" and fries. It's also a fun visit to the diners of old where the bar stools swivel, the French fry mascot stands by the door, and burgers are flipped in front of you.

Last time I stopped for a hot dog was more
Than 10 years ago. At the time the place was hopping. Dogs and fries both tasty. Driving by I could see the place wasn't busy but just thought it was the time of day, to late for lunch and to early for dinner I Ordered a few dogs with sauce and onions and fries. The dogs had a snap but sauce had no flavor and there were barely a few poorly chopped onions on them. The fries were totally soggy. When I left in noticed stacks of fries that looked like they were precooked. There was a time when you could get a good dog but unfortunately this isn't it. It's obvious they have lost interest in quality.

I am not from around here. So, I think the good reviews are based on nostalgia. The hot dogs were terrible. Left a nasty aftertaste. The fries were medium rare soggy . Maybe I am spoiled by the great hot dogs found in Buffalo and Syracuse. Never again!

Highly recommend the hot dogs "all the way." They have been in business here for over 50 years for a reason--they are great!

Mike's has the best meat sauce in the area - you can't beat their hot dogs with the works. Then add an order of their home fries and you have a great lunch or dinner!!
