Yup, I'm raving about a hotdog. There are exactly three great hotdog stands in Venice, Florida, and this is one of them. I suggest you do what we (my girlfriend and I) did, and hit all three in subsequent days. And then debate well into...More

I had my favorite, a Vienna beef sausage. It was good and I had plenty of sport pepper. The fries were good. Atmosphere of a local place. Price was reasonable. I will go back.

This place rocks, with real, all beef Vienna franks and poppy seed buns. This is one of the few places I have been south of the Mason Dixon line that offers a real Italian roast beef sandwich. Nice guys run the place. You can't miss...More
