I've been going to Smith's for over 50 years and it's the same now as it was then. The slaw dogs are great with an old timey cherry smash. The hamburgers are always fresh not frozen. The atmosphere is great. Lots of locals eat lunch there every day. He still makes the old fashioned milk shakes too. If you're looking... More

Yes the place is small, parking is limited and the menu board short and sweet. But it's where I can have the Chili Slaw Dogs of my youth and a freshly made order of fries and/or onion rings with my chocolate shake or coke with old fashioned crushed ice. The owner and staff happily banter with you about world problem... More

If you are not a local or related, don't look for friendly service. Get in/get out..that is the attitude.

My friend and I were both disappointed. My fish sandwich was one fish stick on a big bun. It was mostly bun. My friend did not care for her food.

Easy going simple place. Good for a couple of chili dogs and vanilla milkshake. Owner take the phone off the hook at lunch because it just gets too busy.

Atmosphere is very nostalgic and cozy . Food and beverages are delicious and very cost effective . Friendly people from the moment you walk in fresh hamburgers are being made for you while you enjoy a Milk Shake or Vanilla Coke . A must if you're in the neighborhood . You won't regret it .

Owners were very nice and friendly gave us suggestions for the Cleveland area for sightseeing. Very reasonable prices and food made to order. Great quick lunch after visiting Babyland General Hosptial from Washington DC!

They have good burgers at a reasonable price. Burgers are made to order so it may take longer than other places, but it's worth the wait. The wife and I can eat there for around $10.

I get excited just seeing the building as we pass it. Imagining it hopping in its prime time serving up sodas. It is half a history museum, half restaurant! However, we haven't eaten here, so can't speak to the food.

I will not be back to eat here, ever. I found the food OK, not spectacular by any means. Prices are not any better than most other places. What really bothered me was how unfriendly the guy waiting on us was - I assume he was the owner. To begin with, I was unfamiliar with the place so I had... More
