I just wish they would use a corn tortilla because I have friends who have celiac disease, but a flour tortilla was good.

Loved going there, they were the first to offer Chicago Vienna hot dogs. The owner recently died so now it is hit and miss for them to be open. I want to thank the family for bringing this innovative attraction to the Dells.

Antoni "our favorite hot dog slinger" passed away recently and it was very difficult for him to keep himself going AND the restaurant too! The family will regain composure and try to fill in where they can when ready. Tony was a great guy and did a great business. He will definetly be missed by all. Please be loyal and... More

Chicago Style Dogs were delicious and the fresh cut fries... More

We parked at Rail Dog, Ordered 4 dogs, all came with delicious fries, and then wanted to take a short 5 minute walk. The lady in the train car yelled at us to move our car across the street if we were going on a short walk. It was embarrassing.

Nothing to get excited about. There was nothing wrong with the Hot Dog but there are better dogs to be had in Wisconsin Dells. There is something to be said for the nostalgia though.
