Great menu, interesting combinations, fun place. Eclectic is the word. Great draft beers and knowledgeable bar staff. Tell them what you like and they have something to satisfy. Only stayed for dinner and 2 beers...had to drive another 2 hours but I'll definately be back!!

I absolutely love this place. Do not be put off by the fact that it is gourmet hot dogs and hamburgers because that does seem unusual to say gourmet hot dog but this place will surprise you! It's Unique it's yummy and it's very memorable....More

An eclectic mix of menu items over and above what their namesake would suggest. The owner and cook staff employ an imaginative approach to meals served upon a bread item. While they offer a comprehensive selection of malt beverages, fermented or distilled from which to...More
