Small but cozy and wonderful atmosphere. The staff and owners are very friendly. The food comes quick and good portions. I love the fries, onion rings, chili dogs and homemade pastries. You can have regular hot dogs or skinless. Excellent everything. Highly recommend.

Great Local place to eat that won't break your budget. You can get a breakfast or lunch that is delicious and you don't have to work half the morning to pay for it.
