“Run down and gritty, just what to expect”
Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

You're going to get a cheap hot dog that tastes good and is fresh. This kind of busy place ensure that stock doesn't stick around too long in the freezer. Don't expect a friendly smile or even an English server. The lukewarm Papaya juice is below average but the hotdogs are better than most places

“Disgusting”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

I was starving and afraid to walk around the neighborhood looking for another place to eat so late at night. I ordered the jalepeno poppers, chicken with fries and papaya drink. The only jalepenos were ok, but the chicken was cold and the fries were soggy. The papaya drink was ok, but nothing to write home about. I felt like I or the store might have been held up at any moment. No need for me to go back to this place.

“Great dogs”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

What a great dog! And, so close to the hotel that I stayed in, and 2 dogs and a 16 oz drink for $5?! Unreal. I highly recommend this place. Nice folks working there, too.
