It's a perfect place to grab a quick meal. I've been here multiple times and it is consistently good. My wife says the frozen custard is superior. ( I like the hot dogs)

This is a place that I visit several times per year. The dogs are always fresh and always good. The chips are something special. Good place to take a group for a fun time.

The food was good, the service even better! The custard we got to go. However, the price is a bit steep for hot dogs & chips. If it were cheaper I'd think it was a steal.

Been disappointed how beach towns advertise they have frozen custard only to find out it's just lousy soft-serve ice cream. This place really serves the treats from a soft-serve machine. It's very local, so I wholeheartedly endorse this non-chain venue. The staff is ultra friendly.

Hot dogs are great, as is the chili, the ribbon fries and the shaved steak sandwich. Tony is so friendly and always checking on your meal and thanking you for coming in.

Excellent hot dog and great staff. Owner is always there and makes a point to come and talk to everyone. You have to try the ribbon fries. Very unique.

Food was good and service was great. You need to try this place! We even got to meet Tony. He was walking around talking to everyone. This seem to be lost today, not here.

We were up this way for the beach glass festival and stopped for lunch. Very good food and staff was extremely friendly. Will stop here again when we are up this way.

Came across this place while driving through Ashtabula. The first thing I noticed was a book exchange box or something to peruse if dining alone. Upon entering, I was warmly greeted and the owner even approached each patron to thank them for coming. There are tables as well as a large eat-at counter as well as tables outside! The dogs...
