Great little bar with an outstanding selection of hot dogs and tubed meat products. Fun staff. Friendly and knowledgeable. Decent selection of draft beers. Worth a visit.

This is becoming a family favorite. Great selection of hot dogs with unique flavors and a selection of other pub type fare. The onion rings and french fries are very good. The regular hot dogs and fish and chips were also good. I was a...little disappointed with my Chicago dog -- did not hold together well, but was an overall good experience.More

Fun atmosphere, warm friendly staff and good selection on the menu makes this a great place to stop in, relax and enjoy a good lunch. From burgers, and dogs to chicken you can find something just right for you. I has the mild Italian sausage...dog and fries, was very tasty.More

We've had hot dogs and fish tacos every time we've come. They are both good. There is beer and cider, no wine. We wish they had a bigger menu. If you're watching your calories, fish tacos without the shell works but everything else is high...calorie. I have had a hot dog without a bun but they wouldn't let me have sauerkraut for it (to add a vegetable).More

Everything was fantastic!! Great selection of drinks and food. French fries are hands down the best I've ever had.

Two of us had the fish sandwich with fries for an additional 1.50. The fish is catfish . One of us had the fish and chips platter . Fish was the same that was on the sandwich. The side of coleslaw came in a tarter...sauce cup, literally a bite or two. At first I thought it was tarter sauce. You get one piece of fish and it was pretty blah tasting. French fries were some of the worse we have had, we all agreed on that. They were greasy , odd taste and were all glued together in a ball. Never have I had to pull fries apart that were so stuck together by the batter stuff , gross. Ordered sweet tea, it came in bottles with a side of ice. 55 bucks for three lunches that we all thought was pretty bland. The hotdogs looked good however, and we will give it a try for lunch for the hotdogs. Definitely not for their seafood.More

The crab cake sandwich was overpriced at $12.95 for an okay crab cake and it doesn't come with a side. In addition, the crab cake was lukewarm. I added some fries for an extra charge and they were grease balls. The tea is served in...bottles at $2.95 each. The service was okay; no straws with our drinks, forgot the tartar, and didn't give me any silverware to put the tartar on the crab cake sandwich once I received the tartar. The atmosphere could have been better.More

I love this place. The food is good and the staff are perfect. It's a good, quick eatery. I can stop in and leave feeling full in a short amount of time.
