“My First Corn Dog”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

We stopped here as recommend in every guide book going on route 66 and even thought it was 10 in the morning it was awesome! totally lived up to the hype and my first corn dog experience. A fun experience with plenty of memorabilia and what a great way to leave your first state on the Route 66 trip!

“Classic Rt 66 Eatery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

If you are traveling on Rt 66, this is one way to fully immerse yourself in the experience. Corn Dogs are good, generous portion of fries. Touristy, but there were mostly local regulars. One guy in the next booth said he had been going there since he was 17 years old - and he is now 72.
Reasonably priced Rt 66 souvenirs.

“Fun, Famous and great FOOD!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

This historic joint on the famous Route 66 is fun to see various memorabilia and have a great corn dog. While the food ranges from dogs to burgers and fries, this place was comfortable and very decently priced. And sooo busy! But worth the wait in the cafeteria-style line!

“A must stop at Route 66”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

They claim to be the first ones to prepare a corn dog, called here "cozy" dog. Well, either way, they are really delicious, as well as the french fries. The tiny souvenir corner inside it has really interesting Route 66 memorabilia. Although I´d say the staff could be a little more friendly, this is a must stop at Route 66. Really gives you the spirit of it. I´ll definetly stop by again next chance I get.

“Delish breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

Good breakfast menu, helpful staff, quick service, iconic location full of locals which for me is always a positive, cute interior with original signs. Worth a visit if your passing by, it is a super cute place to visit.
