“Went for the food, Stayed for the story!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

The food was good. Always a daily special for around $5.00. The shift was slow, so we were able to hear stories about animals gone wild. There was a woman working there that had a Mom from England who married an American. She was telling us stories about animal gone wild in Maine, Gibralter, in NC! She was a hoot!

“Best fried clams and real hot dogs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2011

You would not expect a hot dog shop to have great fried seafood, but this one does. The fried clams are some of the best I've had in a very long time. Also offers oysters, scallops, and shrimp. My husband enjoyed the chicken tenders as well. Also, they have a sausage dog that is a REAL hot dog, complete with casing and red pepper relish.

“HOT DOGS and more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2011

These are some of the best "dogs" around and can be ordered many different ways. However, since discovering their Greek Grilled Chicken Salad, I am hooked on this place. Oyster Po'Boys are as close to" Nawlins'" as you will find in these mountains!

“Absolutely the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2011

I can guarantee you won't find better food. The people are amazing, the restaurant is beautifully clean, and the value can't be beat. If you haven't tried it, it is a must do!
