“Fills you up for not much money.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

It's a hot dog. Now that you've got your head around that, the quality is good and if you get the daily special you can get filed up without parting with too much cash, No crazy lines. Pretty quick to get your order. Chicken sausage was a bit dry though. Look around town and you will find vouchers for free chips (fries).

“Best hot dog I've ever had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

We found this place by accident and thought we'd try it, we had the kids hot dog (which is still pretty filling!) and we absolutely loved it, the customer service is fantastic the girl who was working told us her life story while we waited for our dogs and when they were ready we devoured them and were full for hours after, they were so delicious we had to bring our whole group back the next day for lunch and had the foot long hot dogs. We had the normal beef ones (with melted mozzarella cheese, sticky onion, mustard and their own tomato sauce which was so yum) but a couple of us had the chilli dogs, all in all everyone absolutely loved their hot dogs.
