The wife wanted to go here to try it out and it was fabulous!

They have a ton of dogs on the menu,all different styles, Chicago, the trolley dog which has a tamale on it, chili dogs, and a bunch of others! Italian beef, sausages, lots of variety on the menu. The prices weren't bad and the fries were really good! A great find for a little place in downtown... read more

We have eaten here several times in the past few months. The hot dogs are so good. They crunch when you bite into them, and are surrounded by a soft bun, generous toppings like mustard, relish, and onions. The fries are always fresh, too. The atmosphere is what you'd expect for a hot dog joint, but that just adds to... More

Thought we'd stop by for a quick lunch treat and found a real gem. They have so many "dogs" to choose from it's hard to make a choice. Inside and outside seating right near Kenosha Marina. Cute train set up inside for little kids to enjoy. Had the Kenosha Dog and the Chicago dog, both were very good.

So good. Great view. Great food. Yummyness. And with Trolley dogs, if you're lucky you can literally see the trolley. Kids love it. Just saying.

Best Chicago Style Hot Dog in the entire area. Very cool atmosphere with excellent food as well. Understand that you are going here for a dog do not expect steak or lobster, the hot beef and fries are awesome. For all of you people who say you cannot put catsup on a Hot Dog I truly wish I knew where... More

Amazing! Especially in the summer! You can see the lake, while eating. Very nice atmosphere! It's really more hot dog joint but they are delicious.

I don't normally go out for a Hot Dog, but this is the exception. They have Chicago style and several other options but I like the two dogs with cheese and Ketchup. You can eat outside on a nice day and watch the travelers downtown. Enjoy!

love the trolley going around the ceiling, hot dogs are great ( they offer some other choices besides hot dogs too), if the owner is there he is so chipper and friendly to you, it's right next to Sandy Poppers to go to for dessert. It's been there for years and a great stop if you are visiting Kenosha.
