They never disappoint

We went on Tues. got the 2 Cozy Dog and Fry special. Top notch. Throw in a coleslaw and we were set. The Cozy Dog is the best "corn dog" we've ever had. They dip and deep fry them when you order.

The corn Dog was good, not outstanding. French fries were above average. The interior is worth the stop. Good stop on Route 66.

I have worked in the area for years but never had the opportunity to get one of my favorite foods from where it was originated. I stopped in and had 2 Cozy Dogs with Fries and some Iced Tea. The dogs were amazing and their batter is awesome. The fires appeared to be hand cut, and were the right texture.... More

Ok, so of course you have to have a Cozy Dog, aka Corn Dog, when you stop here. They are good, the corn bread is a lil thicker than I like but they are good. The fries on the other hand are awesome. I like my fries crispy and that's the way they do them here. Inside there is plenty... More

Don't miss this place! Yummy Home of the Corn Dog. Yummy food and quaint hometown atmosphere! Flavors to add to your sodas. Felt like a place the locals eat.

These guys know how to deep fry! We had corndogs, and fries. The place is on Route 66, and the original corndog makers. A must for 66ers.

My mom and dad ate here regularly in the 50s until the "new upstart golden arches" opened close by. They are still here and the food is still amazing. Maybe a little greasy but that's what gives it the fantastic flavor. Go for the fries. Never frozen. From raw potatoes. I love the hamburgers with onions piled on from the... More

We stopped for a sandwich on a Saturday night and were surprised that this place was not busier. The corn dog was okay, but I can say I ate one at the place that created the corn dog. My daughter loved the cheese sticks and the chicken.
