Best take-out on island!

My son's favorite place on the island! Burgers and hot dogs are the best and Grandma loves the grouper sandwich. A bit pricey but so is everything on the island. Best to call ahead with order...especially during season. Oh boy! Enjoy!

I used to eat here regularly but when the person taking money, working the register left the area and without washing his hands clearly I was not going to eat there anymore. They don't wash their hands, they don't wear gloves and once I saw that not going back ever and I was a regular for many years.

We grabbed a couple of tasty dogs and hand cut fries and then later returned for ice cream. Great place to have a quick lunch.

Love the fact you can get a good dog. Quick and easy place to grab a bite. I thought the French fries were bland/frozen. I would highly recommend the Chicago Dog though.

Loved this unique spot on Sanibel Island. Hotdogs were great and the large portion of fries was too. Nice to have a change of pace from the seafood on the island. Very casual and laid back inside. We felt comfortable coming in with our suits and cover ups on to take a break from the beach. When you visit make... More

Hot dogs were not great. They were kind of crispy and burnt. They were an odd color and had a little bit too much pork or chicken. French fries were good. Ended up paying something like 75 dollars for what should have been about 30 dollars. Overall, okay food and overpriced.

The hot dogs were good. The service was incredibly slow, however. It took about 25 minutes for us to get four hot dogs and fries. We went back in for ice cream and gave up because the lines were so long, and there appeared to only be three people working at the restaurant (and two of them were busy helping... More
