If your a "dog" lover, then don't miss this place. No indoor seating but lots of picnic tables outside.

All kinds of different dogs to choose from. Best milkshakes around. We live in Waterloo and make this a treat four or five times a summer. ( That's all I'll admit too!!) Some people say they are over priced but they are huge and the milk shakes are Yummmm.

Fries & onion rings are fab.
This has become an institution around the K-W Cambridge area.
Don't miss it, right beside the river. Pretty area.

This is a fun place to hit for milkshakes, close to the river. Incredible view of old Galt!
Its a busy spot, and always worth a stop for ice cream, if your in the core.
The burger and fries, hotdogs and other deep-fried foods, are over-priced,
15 minute wait, and served in line. Gross food!
Not the greatest service, picnic tables are a fight to sit at, and usually covered with bird droppings.
We bring a lunch, grab a shake and sit under the trees.

i absolutely love LA Franks! Eating here is so fun, it's super casual and relaxed.

I no longer live in the area, but when I go back to visit I always come here with friends - the black and white milkshake is unreal. so, so good!

Great little place for a burger and fries. Highly recommend the chocolate shakes! Super location for a casual lunch and a great stepping off place for a walk through old Galt and Southworks.

Great little spot to grab a hot dog. But it does take a while, especially with long line ups. At the end of the day, its just a hot dog. I dont like to spend that much time and money on a snack.
