Deep fried fix!

If you like corn dogs and you have a hankering for some deep fried goodness... Cozy Dog is a must stop! Great corn dogs, heaps of fries, and a casual atmosphere will hit the spot. You shouldn't make this your regular diet, but for the occasional splurge.....target hit!

This is apparently an old Route 66 stop. Lots of Route 66 memorabilia around the dining room area. Helpful staff. Very inexpensive food. Heavy, fried food. But that was expected.

Who knew they invented the corn dog in Springfield? An excellent bite to eat right on Route 66. I didn't think the fresh cut fries were all that spectacular, but the corn dogs were magnificent and priced just right.

Nice warm atmosphere as soon as you walk in. Decor is very 60's style and staff is friendly and more than ready to take your order. If corn dogs are your thing, then Cozy Dog is the place to get them. Fries are really great, but I recommend getting one order for two people. You definitely get more than enough.

Original fast food Route 66 stop. Speciality is a corn dog. A hotdog dipped in corn batter and deep fried. Not as revolting as it sounds. But definitely not healthy. Go once for the experience.

The Cozy Dog drive in is a must stop for anyone cruising RT 66. 24 in our group on a very busy day served promptly and with great corn dogs to boot.

Great yet greasy food. Fast friendly service and an atmosphere that makes you feel like a kid in a 1950's malt shop. Hope it says around for a very long time. Nothing taste quite like a cozy dog.

corn dogs made fresh to order. SO much better than the packaged stuff you get elsewhere or in the grocery store.

A corn dog - what is that? Well I expected a battered hot dog on a stick (Australian style) and wasn't really that enamoured at the thought. I was pleasantly surprised, instead of a heavy dough the sausage was coated in a light, almost cake like batter which wasn't heavily saturated in fat. A great place to view Route 66... More
