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

Got a quick cheap dinner here. I had a burger and husband had a dog. Both were good. Fries were definitely good!! Best part was dessert. The ice cream was amazing. We loved the toasted coconut!

Best burger and fresh cut fries we've had in a while, and I don't even like fries. I ordered, picked up and brough them back to our room. Only wish I'd brought back some ice cream.

O.k, I'm admittedly writing this as a very narrow review... just on their chocolate shakes. I've had their dogs and onion rings and a couple other menu items and really enjoyed them, BUT it's their chocolate shake that brings my family back to Schnappers every...More

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