Stopped here after work to give it a try. Great root beer and chili dogs. Monroe, Michigan certainly has a few of these places that seem impossible to find elsewhere. Check it out. Good service that's fast.

One of our favorites. Love the chili sauce that goes on the hot dogs! Chili dog, French fries and a root beer is the best. Car side ordering. We have even ordered their chili sauce by the quart, it is that good!

First I have to say good points: hot food, servers were friendly and helpful, double bacon burger great and onion rings crisp and huge. Bad points: chili tasted like sloppy Joe more than chili, chicken sandwich was two real thin tenders with no flavor to...More

We go here every once in a while and look forward to it every time! The coney dogs are very different than the Detroit style. The sauce is tomatoey. They have great waffle fries and onion rings too! Try the homemade root beer!
