Great dogs and fries. Quick service.Not a fancy place, but what do you want? It's a hot dog joint. But for a quick and easy hot dog meal with some of the best southern chili around the area, this is the place to go.

Great HotDogs and a hard working staff. They allowed us some extra time to shoot pool in the back while they were closing up for the day. Was a blast for the cousins to all hang together.

Like stepping back in time. Enjoyed so much, went there twice on two recent trips to Wake Forest. Hot dogs are red Jesse Jones, steamed buns, good chili & slaw (slaw .25 extra). Wanted to try their pimento cheese, had heard it was good, & waitress recommended adding to fries. Boy was she right, melted on the hot fries, this was a treat. You order from the counter, wait on your food, then find a table in the small dining space. Expect to wait, there's always a line. All the deco is old fashioned, it looks just like it must have looked back in the 60's.
