“Great Chicago Dogs Friendly Owner Eclectic Decor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

Great place to get a real Chicago dog, the owner is super nice, good place to take children, nice that it isn't a chain and has a lot charm. The hot dog stand is an actual rail road caboose. Outdoor seating only, or take your dogs back to the main drag (about 1 block away), sit on a bench and watch the people go by while you eat.

“Affordable and efficient”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

The owner obviously takes great care of his investment. We arrived prior to opening, and he was very busy cleaning every part of the exterior, blowing any leaves away, and assuring everything looked perfect. The food was good--my wife wouldn't stop raving about the Dells taco's beef--and affordable. It is difficult on the strip in the Dells to find inexpensive fare, but this is an excellent option. The theme of the rail car made it even more interesting.

“rail dog”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

Good food for a reasonable price. Hard to find in a tourist town.
The polish sausage is awesome. Fries looked and tasted like homemade, but weren't. Great service.

“Good, But "come on Man" it's just a Hot Dog Stand”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

Good Dog, Out door seating only. Dogs served out of a Cabose the thing that pushes it a little above your average Hot Dog Stand. If you want a Dog and your down town stop by.

Great location, tasty food, hot / fresh and made to order, small easy menu and a cook that runs a tight ship ! We go everytime we're in the Dells. Its always, quick easy, in and out of there kind of experience. :)
