The hot dogs are perfect, variety of options. The Fried Oreos are little pieces of Heaven, tried it with the vanilla soft serve ice cream.

Loved the hotdogs here, but they are now closed. Great way to feed a visiting family on the cheap. I believe owned by same company as Teds Bulletin, which they are more invested in. And is mighty good.
