Good food with nice service and they do deliver. The food is average and only have canned soda, no fountain drinks. The beef sandwich is very good, the gyro is average. Go to Jimmy James Blue Goose for that.

Really friendly lady to take your order at the counter. Excellent dogs with good fries. Plenty of seating in a large, clean, sunny dining room. Be careful when leaving Bugsy's - you can only turn right.

I love hotdogs, so I was very excited for them to open. We tried it during the first few months and weren't impressed. We chalked it up to new restaurant jitters. I ordered a chili cheese dog, I was not impressed with my dog, the...More
