Literally one of the only things I could find open on Thanksgiving and I was disappointed to have to get a hot dog but it was surprisingly good! Perfectly toasted bun with mustard assortment!!! A must try if in the area for a quick bite.

Run in, run out, eat hearty! The Calabrese is tasty; hot, spicy, and fennel-y too. Great with or without sauerkraut or onions; I had two! Lots of mustard choices; if I could have eaten three, I could have tried more. Alas.

Right around the corner fm where we stayed. Unexpected find that turned out to be a fun place with smart staff. The bratwurst was as good as you get anywhere. Appears there's a loyal following of regulars for good reason. We'll be back when in...More
