Love this place! The only way it could be better is if it was in a larger location. The service is quick & friendly, there are tons of fun choices for hot dog toppings, and they have vegetarian hot dogs! Great place for a quick, soul-comforting bite to eat. Even my picky daughter likes it!

This place is great. The service is great even during peak hours. Excellent rotating draft beer selection and a full bar. Open fairly late. Popular with everyone but especially the 20-35 crowd. Near other interesting eateries and bars including 16-bit. I recommend the ripped hot dogs if your diet will allow. Great smoking hot Bloody Mary with house made infusion... More

Small place-expect to wait for a table. Menu is extensive, fun, and all hot dog based. Good selection of tap beers available too. Worth checking out!

Husband had two different dogs and I had a Chicago dog and fries. It was all delicious. Although he felt that the dogs, themselves, were nothing special, he is wrong. :) Vienna beef with the perfect size bun loaded with toppings. DELICIOUS and crazy reasonable. Why not 5 stars? It's a small place and the wait was long. The food... More

If you are a fan of hot dogs with a variety of toppings, this is the place! You can get 2 specialty dogs for about $7 which is definitely enough for lunch. Items such as fritos, chili, sriachi sauce, chicago style, new york style, almost anything. Tater tots are very crispy. Decent beer selection.

Very good, creative hot dogs. The special was fried pickles when I went and they were incredible. Cool atmosphere overall.. It is really more of a hot dog bar than a restaurant, which gives it it's cool vibes.

I had a hot dog called "Lara princess" and "puff the magic popper" and the two were about the best hot dogs I've ever had. If I'm ever travel near here again, it's a must stop.

I love to go here and have some beers and a couple of dogs with family or friends. The hot dogs are great, service friendly and a good selection of beers. Service is friendly and prompt. A unique experience for sure!
