We needed to get something to eat at the airport. We had a long flight ahead of us with no meal service. I walked the airport corridor and Lucky Dogs seemed most reasonable and probably the quickest. Our dogs were $5.50 each. UGH! But, the...More

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Music Legends Park. They had delicious hotdogs fresh. We really enjoyed the comedy from the vendor as he prepared our food. He was extremely friendly, entertaining and helpful in directions.
