I grew up eating at Jeanicke's & love it. It has changed owners of course over time, but still is good, just a little pricey on the red hots. My family of four can spend 30.00 here easy.

This little place is always busy. THe hot dogs are great but when there, you must indulge in a ICE COLD ROOT BEER!!!!!!! Yu will not be dissapointed. However, keep n mind, its all outdoor seating so if you have young kids be watchful they dont run off.

This is a little roadside fast food stand like those quaint places you used to eat at when you were a kid except this place is only like that on the outside. The inside puts out bad food and bad service.
You are better off anyplace else even McDonalds. The fries are soggy and tasteless, obviously from a freezer. The hotdogs are mushy and no taste. The tenderloin sandwich wasn't much better than the hotdog.
Save your stomach and go to anyplace else.
Oh yeah and the wait staff are teenagers with an overabundance of attitude and rudeness.
