This place has great hot dogs but if you are old enough to remember what a Frito Pie is and like them then you have to go here. They call it a hot mess and it brings back so many memories.

Nice sample of standard dogs, with some creativity in offerings. Small inside space is adequate. Service is at a counter, and is personalized and quickly done.

Not your grandmother's hotdog! These are smothered in good and tasty toppings, and they use super quality hotdogs to begin with. They are hot and fresh and delicious. Worth a try!
