“A true piece of Grand Haven summer life!”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

Next to Snug Harbor on Harbor Drive is the Pronto Pup. The place looks like an overgrown white phone booth (yes it is that small) and they serve the BEST corn dog you have ever had! When family and friends visit from out of town...,they have to go to the Pronto Pup. This little corn-dog stand has been a local tradition for at least 50 years (maybe longer), it still is owned and operated by the original owners family. They honor the quality of their food, and it shows. People line up for the one day in the winter when he opens for a charity event. Now thats worth celebrating..., with a corn dog!!

“This is a deliciously decadent must do.”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

The long lines are worth the wait. I only get them once a summer because they aren't the most healthy of dogs, but splurging on these is definitely a must do if you are in Grand Haven.

“Must give it a try”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

These are so fattening and horrible for you with all the fried breading not to mention a hot dog, but if you are visiting Grand Haven or driving through, you must have at least 1 pronto pup during the summer. They only accept cash.

“Still Yummy!”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Probably been 20 years since I had a Pronto Pup and they are still the best corn dog (sort of) I've had. Stopped by while on vacation the other day which was the last day open for the season. The owner would not tell me what is in the batter, but it is thinner and lighter than normal corn dogs. He said it was a flour and corn meal batter (along with other items). The place is the size of a phone booth. Very simple ordering - Do you want mustard, ketchup or both on the Pup. Dine on a nearby park bench while looking at the boats pass by. FYI - the line to get Pups can be long and they are cooked while you wait.
