We wanted a quick lunch before going to the beach and that it was! The food is disgusting and so greasy we couldn't eat anything. The oil in which the fries are cooked must be 5 years old. I certainly do not recommend the place

They have 48 flavors of ice cream!! The staff was friendly. The hot dogs were just ok. The fries were good. It was cold and I wasnt aware there was no indoor seating.

Good hotdogs, but not up to Chicago standards. We steam our hots while these seem to be deep fried. Not bad, just a little different. Fries were 👍 great. We topped off with some ice cream 🍨 from their long list of flavors. A good...More
