My husband and I stopped here on our way to Boston because it was on triple D. We both had hot dogs which were tasty. We had a coleslaw dog and a chili dog. I would recommend if around the area but not to drive out of your way.

Just another fast food joint. I can't understand why Triple D came here. Burgers are very thin patties, like Sabretts. Hot dogs didn't have that advertised "snap" and were just ok. Biggest disappointment were the French fries which were frozen. They were the crinkle cut kind you would expect get in a school cafeteria. Don't go out of your way to go here. If you want a good hot dog Super Duper Weenie remain your best choice in CT.

Feels like a classic food joint with great taste. People are nice and food is ready fast. Customizing is endless. The burgers and dogs are awesome.

Our family of 5 stopped here on our way from PA to Boston. The service was unique as we were rushed to order by the cashier. So much so that we had to keep flagging her down after she began taking other orders in order to complete our own. Girl had a good memory, though, as she remembered everyone's items as she rung them out later. It was very cramped from opening the door to sitting down to going to the bathrooms. Some 80 year old lady got stuck in the bathroom due to sticky doors and proceeded to yell at my 13 and 11 yr old for not hearing her knocking on the walls. As for the food, my burger was completely overpowered by the chili. The wife, younger daughter, and son said theirs were bland. Older daughter said moz sticks were chewy. But we all agreed that the buns were soft and tasted good. For the price ($50) it's not worth the hassle.
