They have excellent skinless hotdogs and other great food options. They make their own fresh pastries daily. My favorite is the chili cheese dogs with onions. Their prices are very reasonable and the staff is friendly. It's a great local place to eat.

Small but cozy and wonderful atmosphere. The staff and owners are very friendly. The food comes quick and good portions. I love the fries, onion rings, chili dogs and homemade pastries. You can have regular hot dogs or skinless. Excellent everything. Highly recommend.

Hot dogs and onion rings are simply put fantastic. I love their housemade desserts and donuts. They are always busy but worth the wait.

Both my husband and I got the hotdog basket. The fries are homemade and some of the best we've ever had.

If you want delicious Franco-American desserts and donuts, this is the place to go. You might even want to start with dessert. But don't miss out on their real cheeseburgers (no frozen, pre-formed patties here) and assorted hot dogs, as well as dishes like home-made...More

The hot dogs here are perfectly cooked and delivered fast. The fries are soggy and greasy. The Diet Coke tastes funny. For really good dogs and incomparable fries, try the Dogg House in Augusta instead.
