“Good but not great”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

The dogs are good but not the best. The service is great and the place has ambiance . It is a relatively easy on easy off when traveling on I99. I would go back again but I would not make a special trip to go there. It is certainly above average.

“Overrated”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

These hotdogs are just not good compared to local hotdog shops in other parts of the country. I would't waste my calories or my money.

What can we say the sauce is awesome. I have relatives that moved away. Ohio & Florida. When they come home to visit. We always go there first to eat.

“Quick Good Food”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Stop and get a hot dog and then play a round of mini-golf. Prices are good and worth the stop. You can also get ice-cream and there's a place to sit outside.
