It's fun to stop at the Cozy Dog when you're traveling Route 66, but don't stop here for the food. The hot dogs were just average, but it's the nostalgia, isn't it?

From the moment we spotted the restaurant, we were plunged into the 1950's atmosphere. The nostalgia of The MOTHER ROAD is rich with Historic ROUTE 66 signs, items from that era, & the furniture even is, or resembles the first great road from Chicago to Los Angeles. NOW, as for the food; it's outa the past, with the famous COZY DOG being their "claim to fame." I'm not a hot hot dog fan, but my companion said the COZY DOG was better than average. I really enjoyed the fresh cut French Fries, as my mother made, in the era before pre-packaged frozen foods. There is a authentic museum section, & I couldn't get enough of viewing the ROUTE 66 memorabilia. Desserts are lacking, as they had "bought" items, verses "fresh dipped." Just know, this is a place from the mid 20th century, & not the typical "McD's" type establishment, or food type. About the only modern 21st century aspect of the COZY DOG, was that we ordered our food at the counter, rather than being "waited on." We will stop in again!

The food was not horrible but its the type of food you can get at any diner. Its hard to believe that 2 cheeseburgers, an order of fries and mushrooms and 2 drinks cost $21.

You're not going here for amazing food, but to take in the ambiance of a time long gone. We were there and a dozen classic cars arrived- was very cool to see! We had corn dogs and fries and they were just fine. Not amazing, but it was fun seeing all of the memoriabilia from the old Rt. 66!

Excellent cozy dogs. Hand cut fries are wonderful. A bit of living history! Go see the Abraham Lincoln museum and the tomb. Finish out your day with some cozy dogs and fries.
