If you are in Sanibel, you have to stop by here. The wings are the best I've ever had. This is absolutely a "to go" place ... they have a very small area (picnic tables) outside, but it's usually too hot in FL to eat wings outside ... take them back to the condo & enjoy ... fries are good... More

Yummy hot dogs and the fries are amazing! Great for a quick lunch with the family. We come every year when we are Sanibel. My kids love it!

We stopped here for a quick bite to eat before we headed to the beach. It was crowded and very warm inside, wondering if they kept the front door shut if that would help keep the air inside? They have a long "table" that you can stand at and eat, there is no seating inside. They do have some benches... More

A casual beach menu that is always good. The prices were a bit high but the food was good. The fry servings were large and the hotdog /burger topping list was extensive. Plan to call in your order ahead or be prepared to wait!

Nice place to grab some lunch or dinner. Great burgers, about as close to a homemade burger you can get. Nice and messy.

We took our 3 boys ages 6,10 and 12 here for a quick dinner one night while on the island. The hot dogs were mediocre at best. My son had the slaw dog, I had the Chicago Dog and my husband had the grouper sandwich. It cost us $60.00 for 5 people to eat hot dogs, fries and drinks!!! I'd... More

My husband had heard about this place from a coworker who goes to Sanibel Island each year so we tried it out. *If you are looking for a low-cal meal then this is probably not the spot for you.* This is a char-grill place like I remember from my early childhood (in IL) and that I don't see too many...

Truly a place that bring it all back! This is the kind of food and the type atmosphere I remember from beach hot dog joints when I was a kid (I'm in my early 40s) and I've always hoped to find it again. The food is awesome! The staff is friendly. Service is quick. We'll be back again and again.

We had been looking to stop here for a while, and finally made a planned trip to Sanibel for shopping and lunch at Schanppers. The fries were out of this world...hot, crisp, perfectly salted with ketchup or malt vinegar for dipping. The hot dips themselves were good, however we were disappointed in the mushy chilli on the chilli dogs. We... More

Once again we stop at our preferred place for burgers at Sanibel. Always good. We love also the fries and the onion rings. Yes, it's a little expensive but we support local business and in this case, good food and service.
