Tried their famous hot dogs and will never go back. Seems like a cheap dog that you get at a circus. Ice cream for desert was just as disappointing..a scoop of ice cream with chocolate....not really a Sundae. Goodplace maybe to take kids!

This restaurant is definitely a local dive. It has been around over 30 years, and many, many locals love it. The hot dogs, hamburgers, and hot fudge sundaes are the best. The service, recently, has been "meh" at best. The servers look/act, well, discombobulated. They...More

Good comfort food. Service was fast and they serve a fantastic chili dog. They can get busy but they also offer curbe service.

Ammons is a hometown staple. Food & service is always great. Hotdogs served "all the way", chili cheeseburgers, & chuckwagon sandwiches are famous there. Try them once and you will definitely be back! But bring cash, no credit/debit cards accepted.
