The service alone got me to write a review. I had never been here and asked to see a menu. The owner had me try a sample of his chili, which was great coney chili. Then he came over and told me about the history. Coney was good and I am very particular about my coney since I am from... More

Excellent food but just a bit pricey. A friendly staff. Food tastes great. The owner makes it a point to visit with every customer. Nice to see classic cars on certain nights. The root beer is creamy and tasty.

This place had good reviews so I stopped in. It's your average fast food drive up with not bad food but nothing too great. Not many other options so worth stopping if you don't like chain restaurants.

Chicago dogs are amazing. Love the real drive in atmosphere, even the music. Owner comes out and greets patrons on a regular basis. Super family or date night destination. A favorite place.

Stopped hear after reading the reviews. Red came out to meet us and go over the menu. We had the coney dogs and Chicago dogs. They were both excellent. Honestly, the coney sauce is the best I've ever had. If I'm ever back in the area, I will stop again.

Stopped for comfort food on our way to the Sunday afternoon bingo at the Lions Club in Paw Paw Michigan. Our party of 6 placed our order to go. It was very tasty. I really enjoyed my burger and fries. Other family members liked the hot dogs.

The food and service was very good. We had bacon burger it was fresh and juicy, the fries were crisp. The root beer was ok I had better. Plenty of seating outside if you didn't want to sit in your car.
