Lunch back in time

Atmosphere is great. The place is like going back in time. The burgers were interesting- loose not a patty. Good taste. Onion rings were average in taste. Portion sizes were just right. Next time maybe a chili burger or foot long burger. We will be back.

Great hotdog place ! Great selection of dogs and great sides . There is a coupon in one of the local magazines for a free dog. Don't forget to walk around and look at all the funk they have collected over the years!

Nothing fancy but great hot dogs. Love the one with everything including onion rings on top. Great french fries. Order at the counter and food is prepared quickly.

We visited this place for many years. We loved their hot dogs and the spare ribs were so unique. They were deep fried and available daily. Unfortunately they no longer offer the spare ribs on their daily menu because there are new owners. They offered us to return on Wednesday and order their rendition of spare ribs. We decided to...

I had the Reuben frank, my husband the chocolate shake, and I had a root beer float. What's not to like.

My wife and I stopped for a quick bite after golf. Lots of choices at a great price including reasonably priced beer. We had a chili dog with onions and I thought it was good. Fine dining... no but quite good and a great value

I'm from Michigan, home of legendary Coney Island dogs. That makes any place else difficult to compare on the taste and texture of the Coney Island Foot-long. But you should visit this place for a taste of Coney Island and to witness the magical history of Brooksville's Hillsboro High School. The HH memorabilia (sports jackets, newspaper articles, team photos, game... More
