We visited based on reviews. The cheeseburger was so delicious, so was the original hot dog, and the french fries WOW!!! We also tried the mild wings, they were packed with so much flavor. Don't forget to save room for ice cream!!! Very minimal seating...More

We ate at Schnapper’s twice on this trip, having enjoyed it last year. The cheeseburgers, fries, hot dogs, onion rings and milk shakes are excellent. The char broiling really works. This is fast food, but good fast food. Some may not care for eating outside...More

I’d like to say the char dog was good. But, I can’t. As a matter of fact, I can honestly say I’ve never had a worse hotdog. Not only was it char grilled, it was charred so much half of it was completely black. I...More
