A busy place, with great hot dogs! Everything cooked per order. Old photos on the wall; memorabilia - Lucy & Ethel ... Elvis Presley, etc. I believe this place is owned by a retired Vet. SUPPORT! Your stomach will be glad you did.

My husband & his friend seemed to rather enjoy this place. A bit greasy for my stomach. Family friendly, nice service.
