Got the Chicago Footlong and the Atlanta dog and both were really good. Just wish the Chicago Footlong was able to have the poppy seed as it's bun like the original smaller size. But overall, these dogs were great and would easily buy them again.

My husband and I were in the area and since my husband is a hot dog lover, we had lunch here. We both had the All American and a beer to go with it. The hot dog was perfect - ketchup, mustard, onions & relish on a toasted bun! Staff was attentive, food was good and we would definitely come... More

There is such a wide variety that it would be easy to never try the same thing twice! They have several different dog types (including a veggie, which I ate) and loads of toppings. You can create your own or choose from a list of creations they have made or adopted. There are also corn dogs, sandwiches, desserts, fries, etc.... More

I forgot to ever write a review about this place, but it was phenomenal. You can get hot dogs with macaroni and cheese on them. They have beer. It's almost like a weird, amazing food truck with a license to serve alcohol. Highly recommend.

It is a cute little place behind McDonalds. Great selection of hotdogs and fixings. As some have mentioned, it can get expensive if you try some of the more exotic dogs. But is a nice change from hamburgers. We'll be back again.

Nice variety, good hot dogs but to pay $9 and change for a hot dog with a little bit -yes, a little bit- of pulled pork on top seems a little excessive (I had the hawaiian). My wife had a small, basic hot dog with chili. Two sodas Almost $20 total.

I ate dinner here one evening. There were only 2 other people in the restaurant, but they also cater to carryout customers. I ordered a Reuben-style hot dog, an order of fries, and a drink. It took nearly 30 minutes for my food to arrive. They told me they were preparing a large carryout order which came in just ahead... More

Tried two different hot dogs with the cheesy tater tots and deep fried pickles. Everything tasted great! The only complain is the fact the hot dogs itself appeared not have been cooked to order, from the look (wrinkled and tuff exterior) and taste of the hot dogs; it appeared to me that the hot dogs were previously cooked and had...

I am not a hot dog lover..but it was pretty good. They also have veggie dogs, turkey dogs, chicken dogs and lots of choices...kind of amazing really.... More

Love a good hot dog? Most people think of the toppings and condiments- not the dog itself. That's why most will love this place- loads of choices! Quite unique in the area. Because of the uniqueness - Wait time for orders exceeds most expectations for fast food. Be prepared. The dogs themselves are as expected. If you like plain dogs,... More
