Go for the hot dog and the variety of toppings. Enjoy the very old atmosphere. Remember it's only a hot dog.

This is an iconic old-time 12" Hotdog Stand that hasn't changed anything but the paint outside in 70 years! Still has a pull-up front / side parking lot a wooden door in and a sit-up spinning stool soda bar that was built by the original owners ... What more can I say than "Get there before it isn't there anymore!!"... More

Sadly, our visit here fell far short of expectations. The only happy person in our party of 4 had the veggie dog. Though their 12 inch traditional hot dogs are their signature dish, only one of us chose one of their many dressed hotdogs and thought it was just OK. 2 of us ordered the "home made burger", at over...

This little diner is a great place to visit and eat but is very special treat for those old enough to remember living back in the 50's. You won't believe the memories this place will bring out in you! This wonderful little place has been in this location since the 1920's and just as it did when the hwy out... More

It's the kind of place you just know is going to be great - but it's not, the place is absolutely disgusting, dirty tables, dirty floor, I mean really dirty, ice cream on the floor, food on the tables - not to mention it's so old (which is part of the charm if they kept it up) it needs special...

This has been an iconic hot dog stand in Burlington forever, and we try to go there a couple of times every summer. But no longer. This time we found the following: - the chili wasn't chili...it was ground beef with some kidney beans...no flavour - the pizza dog contained some lukewarm slices of pepperoni...it wasn't grilled or heated and...
