The home of the corn dog on old Route 66. I've been there many times. The last visit they were closed for a wedding &-(!?@. Rats....next time I'll have to go twice.

I'm not a huge fan of corn dogs, but these were great. Not greasy, batter was light, quite tasty. Fries were great. Would go again.

Just plain good food, especially the corn dogs. Hamburgers are grilled, a little greasy but that makes them good. Fries are fresh and hand cut, also good.

This is a place you either love or hate, I've taken people here that hated the food and Ives that liked it, I personally like it. I take the kids here and we get a cozy dog basket and cheese burger basket (4 of each) and a large fry (it's huge) and it works well

This was part of our stop on Route 66. Supposed to be known for their corn dogs. Not worth the time to stop! No waiters. You have to go to the counter to order. Then go back to get your food. Then take your tray to the disposal spot. And to top it off. The corn dogs were not good.... More

My husband is a huge fan of corn dogs and when we heard this is where corn dogs originated, we had to go there. The place isn't fancy but well worth the experience. The Cozy Dog was better than any corn dog we've ever had and the soups were homemade delicious. We like finding places like this that have a... More

Well, they invented the corn dog. They were pretty good. Chilli was very greasy. Fries had a weird taste. Overall, worth a visit because of the kitch and history. Have a corn dog so you can say you did it.

If you are looking for a kitschy place with tons of history, character and friendly people, this is your place. Its not fine cuisine, but that is not why you go here. The staff was super friendly, and you could spend an hour looking at all the memorabilia. Food was fine and if you good there early, you can catch... More

We saw this place spotlighted on one of the Food Network shows and decided we would try it next time we were in Springfield. My husband and I were in Springfield for two days recently and headed over once we dropped our stuff off at the hotel. Since corn dogs are a guilty pleasure for both of us we were... More

This place has so much RT 66 thing to look at and you are able to buy RT 66 things. We had the Cozy Dog and loved it with fries. Fast service and Great staff.
