Well, gadzooks, I'm glad Rail Dog is getting attention because it is a fun, not-very-Dellsy fast food stop. I'm not as giddy as others about the average hot dogs and fries, but the fun factor of the friendly proprietor working out of a caboose makes this a necessary stop for those who enjoy Americana like the Naked Cowboy on Times Square and the old woman who lived in a shoe.

Rail Dog is off the main stretch of downtown Wisconsin Dells. It's a unique place to say the least. The man who runs it (one man runs it all) has his restaurant inside an old caboose rail car. He's funny and talkative. The kind of place you might find in a Chicago neighborhood. Fresh cut fries, dogs, polish, beef sandwich and other items I don't recall. My boys had dogs. I had a polish taco, which is a polish sausage in a flour tortilla. My wife had a Dells Taco. Shredded beef inside a flour tortilla with fixings. All came with fries. Drinks were a buck a can. A cheap fast meal and a fun experience. Definitely worthy of a visit while in the Dells. I rate it very good for the kind of food that ti is. This is not health food or veggie food. It's old school fast food before there was such a thing.

Great Hot Dogs. Sit outside on picnic tables and enjoy the food. Try the Polish Tacos and Dells Tacos...they are terrific. Tony, the owner is a real treat. Ask him about the rail car and his new caboose room. Yes, an actual train car (caboose) you can rent for the night. Only 1 block off Broadway.

Everything you're reading is true! Great little spot off the main drag. Worthy of it's number 1 rating. The owner told us to enjoy our food while it was hot, and to just pay when we were done. Such a fun place!
