This is the best hotdog place in town..!! Nice people, great service, great prices and the best hot dogs. They offer some simple breakfast items and a few other lunch items too like a hamburger or Campbell's soup. We love to stop in for chocolate milk, Middleswarth chips and a few dogs with everything (mustard, chili and onion).....!!
