Have only been once, but want to go back. Hours are limited and I never seem to catch them open. I think it is a terrific vegetarian place. The choices are excellent, and sooooo tasty. Even my kids loved it. The neighborhood can seem a...More

Worth a trip. Great hot dogs, gluten free offerings, great sides. A nice find in lower Poughkeepsie. Quick bite and go. Parking can be a little challenging on the street, however.

Decided to go after reading the article in the Poughkeepsie Journal. Very disappointed. Not sure what was colder, the hot dog or the bun. It seemed as though both were taken out of the refrigerator and served. Had I not taken my order to go...More

This is a tiny restaurant. It is very immaculate. They specialize in gluten free dishes, but we opted for regular beef dogs on regular buns. The hot dogs were very tasty, with just the perfect amount of crisp on the skin. The buns were fresh....More
