The hot dogs are good here, as are the fries. But stale bread is unforgivable. They should have asked us to switch from a footlong if all of their footlong rolls were stale (they have regular and footlong dogs).

I got what should have been an excellent Chicago dog, ruined by the roll. Others had hot dogs and burgers, and were happy with them.

The price will have you going to Jerry's to buy your own hot dogs and rolls though, outrageous and comparable to a sit-down dinner. I got a shake and it was like $5 for a tiny one. Smashburger, which I consider expensive for fast food, has a shake twice as big for $4.

Unfortunately, we probably won't be back. As a hot dog addict planning to retire to Sanibel ASAP (years off unfortunately!), they are missing out on making the most of their location and product.

Note also that there is not seating inside, so plan ahead to eat elsewhere. Their outdoor seating is under an overhang between buildings.

Lunch for four, 2 hot dogs, a burger, a fish sandwich, one onion rings and sodas and a shake came to nearly fifty bucks. For this you order at a counter, wait to be called and carry your food to a picnic table outside. Really good food, but yikes!

The hot dogs are special. I love the italian sausage, onions, and peppers. French fries are fresh cut & special. The Pizza is good. The grouper basket is wonderful too.

There is no dining area inside. We take the food back to our room.

My husband and I like to try different places. I tried the Chicago dog, liked the toppings, but what a skinny little dog for greater than $4.00. The onion rings for almost $7.00 were not that spectacular. The best thing was the fresh cut french fries, which I would go back to just have them. There are better places on the island to get a good sandwich before going to this place.

The food was ok, but very pricey. My husband went in to get the food and he said that they were very efficient and very helpful, he gave a them large tip, but the food was average and VERY expensive for hotdogs in my opinion.
