Finally visited the home of the corn dog and very disappointed. The batter for the dog was not really good and it tasted burned - the oil they cooked it in was probably way past the time it should have been changed out. I kept tasting that dog for two days. Will not be back.

Great corn dogs as well as a varied menu. The fries are like no other. Fresh, homemade and thick and crispy on the outside fluffy on the inside. Prices reasonable and the staff is friendly and well trained.

I have been going to this place for over fifty years. It's the original corn dog!! There is no other place like it. It's on the mother road and s must visit for any traveling Rt 66 enthusiast. The food is still the original.

This is a fun restaurant--a throw back to the 60s. There is a varied menu of quick meals at reasonable prices. The food is good but not gourmet, It is on historic Route 66 but somewhat removed from other sites.

Been dreaming of visiting this place for years and today my dreams came true. I felt like I stepped back in time. Best place to get a dog on a stick. The coleslaw and chili fries were good as well. Check this one off the bucket list.

We stop at the Cozy Dog every time we are in Springfield IL. The Cozy Dogs are excellent and made fresh when you order. Another family favorite are the made from fresh cheese burgers. So when you are in Springfield don't miss the opportunity to visit a Rt. 66 icon.

We come here as a family and there is something for everyone. First, a cozy dog (corn dog) is a must ...and you can get a family basket with fries. One daughter will always get a burger instead -- and my husband loves the chili. The BEST thing about Cozy Dog is the fries IMHO. If you like fries at... More

It's a fun thing! Watch them make 'em and then eat 'em! It's a must do, if you're here. I'd never had a corn dog in my life and probably never will again but I'm glad for the experience and memories!

Thank Virgil1944
