“Great Dogs, Rings and Fries!!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Quality all the way at this place. Fresh beer-battered onion rings cooked just right - the whole onion doesn't pull out when you bite it. Fresh and natural fries. Great quality dogs and fresh toppings. Great service. I will definitely go here again and again and again. Inside or outside seating.

“dogs were not that great”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

I had two hot dogs from this place for lunch. The toppings they put on the hot dogs were pretty good however the actual dogs left a lot to be desired. I think they use extremely low quality hot dogs. I would definitely not eat here again if I returned to the area.

“Good dogs!!”
Reviewed August 21, 2012 via mobile

These guys have done wonders with the former Trolly Stop location. Food and service have improved 100 fold!! It's nice to go somewhere where they truly care if you've enjoyed your time there. Highly recommend for a quick bite at the beach. Nice touch on having soft serve for the kids if you are down for the Thursday music at the beach.

“Wow!!”
Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

A rainy day paradise with delicious array of hot dogs beer battered onion rings and hand cut fries. The outside eating area looks fun, but due to rain, didn't make it out there!
We will go back very soon! And for the bonafide, there is CHEERWINE!!

“Great Food!”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

Rather small menu comprised of delicious hotdog combinations, fries and amazing onion rings. Great local food that is cheep, delicious, and filling.
