“Best Darn Hot Dogs outside of a Greys Papaya or a cart in NYC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

OK, I love hot dogs. Especially NYC style. This place has them all, including a bunch I have never heard of but am going to have to try. Honest place, with great hog dogs, free fixings of just about everything you can put on a dog and you have to try the fries with comeback sauce. They serve breakfast, haven't tried this yet. However for lunch and for a hot dog, enthusiastic supporter!

“This is a cute but average hotdog place.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

I visited last week while in the area. I ordered the bratwurst, and garlic parm fries, my daughter had a dog, and my son had shredded BBQ chicken while my mom had a kielbasa. The choices are good but the food was just avg. The brat and kielbasa were not bad but not the best we have had, I asked for grilled onions and they were still very raw, the shredded chicken wasn't that great but my 5 yr old liked it so I guess that's all that matters. There were only 2 high chairs in the place and both had broken straps, and no changing table in bathroom so not very baby friendly place, there are no kids meals. The best thing we had were the garlic Parmesan fries. Those were really good. The service was good and the owner was super friendly.

“Unique offerings and great quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

It's great to see a locally owned and operated business do such a great job and the popularity of the eatery is evident from the patronage. The regular menu covers a wide variety of authentic Hot Dog and sausage sandwiches with great sides. The daily specials are the best of all and really show off Greg and Diane's culinary expertise. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and all you need to know is on the ordering sign: 1. Your name (or alias), 2. Your choice of goodies, and 3. Where do you want to enjoy it.

“Quick, easy, comforting...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

For days when you need a quick comforting lunch...think carbs, protein, fat...not veggies and salad...this is the place to go. They have a daily special which is always an easy choice. Chicago style dogs with tons of toppings that you can help yourself to...

Also, they upgraded to an adjacent location so now they have seating (for those who remember when it used to be a standing room only take-out joint). Glad to see that they get enough business to justify expanding. It is truly a hidden gem in Herndon.

“Great choice of dogs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

This place is a good stop for comfort food. Mostly a high-class guy's lunch hangout, they do have daily sandwich specials which are very good. A variety of fries available. Wish they sold beer.
