Not a coffee shop

This place is fantastic. The food is phenomenal and staff very friendly. Love the Moscato on tap! Angry Redneck Fries are good but nothing is better than the sweet potato fries with special dip. You can't go wrong with any of their hotdogs but my personal favorite is the salmon.

In town on business. Had dinner at the bar. Ordered the Teuben, which is like a hotdog Reuben. It was AMAZING! Great selection of craft beers on tap. Fast friendly service. Can't wait to try this place again

Food: 4 Selection: 4 Service: 4 Cost: 4 Aesthetics: 4 Overall: 4 Great food, even if they are "just" hotdogs. Everything I've had from here has been excellent. They do get rather busy and have a long wait for good usually around lunch. That's the biggest downfall. Turning Japanese is great BTW. ;)

Stopped in for dinner and a draft. They have a great selection of burgers and dogs. Not your standard burgers and dogs. I had the Angry Ozarkian. A burger between two grilled cheese sandwiches with avocado, siracha, jalapeño and special sauce! I paired it with one of the 25 craft beers they have on tap. It was all good!

Recent visit for lunch, had one of the best burgers ever. If you like chilli, try the combo bowl and pair with one of the many beers on tap.

Fun and welcoming downtown location. Interesting collection of original local artwork on display throughout, huge and unique selection of beer, and a hilariously creative (and delicious) menu of dogs, burgers, and fries Or how about some deep fried lasagna?. Great place to relax and unwind in a kitschy but not contrived atmosphere. Oh yeah... I hear they have coffee there... More

This place is cool without being too hip. The ambiance is modern chic and the waiters are top notch. The food, although being hotdogs and hamburger, are gourmet, quality and worth paying for.

This is more that a coffee shop. They have a great variety of gourmet hot dogs and sandwiches. The "grilled cheeseburger" is a full grilled cheese sandwich for the bottom "bun" and another for the "top bun" with a cheeseburger with all the fixings between. Really a meal to die for.

I had a bacon and bleu grilled cheese burger. Instead of a bun, they used two grilled sandwiches. It was really tasty. I had a side of angry redneck fries which was, hand burger meat, jalapeños, and bleu cheese coleslaw on fries. The food was great but the service was lacking. My friend asked for a side of ranch three... More

Gourmet hot dogs are amazing!!!! We've tried so many and they all are to die for! Sweet potatoe fries and sauce are a top pick! Large portions, great food, excellent bar and service! Love the funky atmosphere! One of our favorite places!
