Another local hot dog shop with a very long history.This place is right in the downtown area. I tried a couple of dogs and they did not disappoint. They were grilled and serevd on a steamed bun with mustard, onions and sauce. Washed it down with a very cold birch beer which is hard to find in this part of the state.
Probably the cleanest hot dog shop I have every been in. Would recommend it if your driving through or doing the tourist thing.
