Not worth the effort getiing into parking lot. Basic overpriced hot dog. Rude staff. Long wait for a grilled hotdog and fries.

Kind of a landmark and should not be missed. Limited menu, but all items cooked fresh and hot. Not concerned with healthy items, but that's ok with me.

Hi Mandie, our hot dogs are gluten free; however, not the bread.
