Cozy Dog is where the 'Dog on a Stick' was invented from a Waldmire family recipe at Springfield’s Route 66 landmark. Inside the diner, which has been located on Old Route 66 since 1949, visitors will find GREAT food and Route 66 memorabilia and souvenirs.

This place is perfect for a quick bite to eat. The kids love it, the food is good and inexpensive, and the staff is very friendly. The Route 66 vibe is fun too. I definitely recommend!

This is a well-known hotdog restaurant known for their corn dogs that they call cozy dogs. They are good but I think they are a bit overpriced. The staff was excellent and friendly and I really enjoyed the french fries.

The cozy dogs are just corn dogs but the food here was still good. I had the chili dog with cheese which was very cheap and pretty good. They had some interesting "Route 66" drinks which we tried out and were very good. They were...More

This is interesting from a historical perspective - not for the food. A Cozy Dog is basically a corn dog - in this case an inferior wiener on a stick with a cornbread coating.

This a Route 66 attraction site and it is a fun place to grab lunch. There is no Kale or quinoa here, just old school blast from the past food! A cozy dog is a corndog but MUCH better, great fresh cut French fries and...More

This is NOT a fancy place and it is self serve. What keeps me coming back is the quality of the food. The service line is always fast and friendly.

When we heard the home of the original corn dog was in Springfield, we had to visit when we were in town. It is an interesting small restaurant, and filled with Route 66 memorabilia. I thought their Cozy Dogs were good, but not great. I...More

Sonic Drive In has corn dogs and they are cheap. There are 3 locations in town that I know of. They have a website and an app you can download. They serve you at your car window like the old car hop days from the 50's. They... More
