Apparently, this place is supposed to have the best hot dogs around. Sorry, I've tasted better AND ... the food could be hotter when it's ready. Hot dogs have always been room temperature and never hot, as I like them to be. The fries are good and the shakes are delicious and thick.

Good food, prices little high. But I will come back very clean place. Made to order so you might have a small wait time on your food.

I had a Chicago Dog, my husband had a Foot Long...all the way, and my son had a corn dog. The hot dogs werent as plump as... More

We saw the signs along the Interstate and decided to see what qualified as a world famous hot dog. While their menu board is somewhat extensive with various hot dog concoctions, it all comes down to a basic weiner in a warm bun. We had two basic hot dogs with slaw, and mustard. Our dogs had no snap when we... More

Great Milkshakes ... love the hotdogs too! Always busy, but never "too crowded". Very friendly and fast service.

Just great home cooked burgers and world famous hot dogs! I've been eating here since it was just a little ice cream stand. They always have new stuff. And the best milkshakes!!! Give it a try

I was running low on gas on I40 and by a stroke of luck found Jay Bee's. I had the Double Dare, it is a Footlong Hot dog with two dogs. Really Fantastic. I'll will stop in again.

Back when Gourmet Magazine was still publishing, they had a husband and wife team who would publish a top list by category of various restaurants in the US. One time they had a top 5 for Hot Dogs and Jay Bee's was right there which encouraged me to give the a try. Been back many times. Generally I order a... More
