We ate here a couple of times while on our trip to San Antonio. We were staying at the Drury Plaza right across the street. The guys running this place are the best! So personable, friendly, and really have a passion for the food they make. We did hear that the building is going to be torn down, unfortunately. So... More

I just can't imagine they are this friendly in Chicago, and the hot dogs couldn't possibly be any better! An inexpensive quick bite while on the Riverwalk.

Used to Al's Beef in Chicago. It is not as good as Al's but still good. I did not try the Polish dog so I cannot rate those. Chicago dog was great!

The food for what it is couldn't be any better. Excellent dog and chili. The only reason I didn't give a perfect score is this is definitely hole in wall with not a lot of ambience. Very good! Will definitely be back. The guy running it was also a delight!

We have had Chicago dogs all over the states. This is one of the best outside of Chicago. Owner cooks made to order. You have to try it when in San Antonio! Small place, excellent food!

Stopped by for hot dogs, drinks and fries. Hot dogs are made to order so everything was hot and fresh. Couple working was friendly and helpful. Very small! Would definitely eat there again.
