True, the look of this restaurant is quaint with an authentic, old-time lunch counter, however, the smell inside was so revolting that I couldn't stand to stay inside. It smelled like a mixture of gas and something rotting. We got our food to go so we could breathe while eating but the food is as bad as the smell. The famed hot dogs are limp and they are in soggy buns. Not worth it!

I felt like we had taken a step back in time the second we walked through the door. I loved the old Coke decor and other miscellaneous antiques. The old man working behind the counter was friendly and liked to strike up a conversation but the rest of the staff weren't as friendly; not rude, just not friendly. I tried one of their 'world famous' hotdogs and have to admit, it wasn't anything to write home about. I also tried a BBQ, and again, nothing too impressive. If anything it's worth the stop just for the atmosphere and low prices...just don't expect to eat the best hot dog ever.
