Great spot for a quick bite when on the run. I've always liked the Chicago style and my wife likes her hot dog with cole slaw. Great prices. Always generous on the hot, freshly cook fries.

Visiting Venice area and wanted to try a local & unique restaurant to celebrate a birthday and we weren't disappointed. Ordered 4 different styles of hot dogs, shakes and apps - all were fresh, flavourful and delicious. Service was fantastic and friendly!
