I've been twice since we moved to Joplin a month ago. Once for lunch and again for dinner during the city's very busy "Third Thursday" event. Enjoyed the food and atmosphere each time. Fries will cost you extra, but not bad. The diverse menu of any sort of Angus hot dog or crazy hamburger you can think of makes this... More

From the local art on the walls to the sometimes live music and always cool music this place is fun to experience. There can be really long lines at times, so avoid noon on the nose. Come a... More

A groovy vibe in this hot dog/burger joint, with it black ceiling and paintings and the food is excellent too. The specials in particular are worth trying. A great place with friendly service.

I have been several times and have always had a great experience. The menu and specials are interesting and tasty. We've been impressed with all of the hot dog variations we've tried. The decor and downtown space are nice. The fries are excellent, we really enjoy both the sweet and regular.

When they stick to what they do best (dogs, burgers, sides) this place can't be beat. When they try to get fancy, they sometimes miss the boat.
