This is one of the iconic hot dog stands in Connecticut. Menu is simple: Hot dogs, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, potato chips, soda. Hot dog condiments are only spicy brown mustard, ketchup and homemade spicy relish. No onions, chilli or other fancy toppings. Honestly, it is a...More

This iconic location on the Waterbury-Cheshire line is a must visit if you love hot dogs and hamburgers served with their secret recipe relish. They are not opened on Fridays stemming from a long time family tradition when Catholics could not eat meat on Friday!

Right off I84 in Cheshire, these hot dogs are fantastic as they use Martin Rosol's (locally made from New Britain) and their homemade relish is out of this world! They're quick to order and to be eaten fast! They also serve burgers, but no fries......More

I really have no idea how this place has a decent rating. It’s literally stop and shop hot dog buns and the cheapest smallest hot dogs you ever saw. Nothing else really. You can’t even order fries. Ridiculous.

The food is pretty decent. It’s a no frills place, counter service and cash. The only reason I even looked at writing a review is because the customer service was horrible. I asked for two dogs with mustard and onions and a bag of chips....More

We used to live in Cheshire Ct., and needless to say, we went there often. When we moved to Vermont and then to Texas, we made it a point to go there whenever we went to Connecticut. They make great hotdogs BUT it is their...More

You want history, this place is for you. I’m a repeat fan and have enjoyed their hot dogs, burgers, salsa, mustard, and root beer. They’ve been doing it since 1928 and have to be visited regularly by those television food shows. The burgers come medium...More

I had heard about the place and took the opportunity to stop for a visit while in the area. Their menu is limited to just hot dogs and burgers. They do sell potato chips. I ordered two hot dogs ($2.50 each). They were ready in...More
