The Cozy Dog was featured on the food channels so, yes, we had to stop. Limited menu but expected at a 'drive in'. French fries were good, hot dog was not. Route 66 and lots of other memorabilia on the walls. Will not stop by...More

This is our second time here....enjoyed it the first time but disappointed this time. The corn dog was underwhelming with flavor and the hot dog itself tastes more like the cheap dogs you buy and not sure what part of the pig you're eating. This...More

This one is just fun. This stop is a local landmark. The corn dogs are coated with actual cornbread, not the sweet spongy coating you find on some corn dogs. Fun family stop- not too expensive. Not for the 'foodie'.

The place is unique. Some cool Route 66 history, but the story is the food. They invented the corndog! Fries are good, too. Plus they have the old school syrup for cherry or vanilla cokes at the self serve fountain.

We had to stop in here for a corny dog to compare it to Fletcher's in Texas. Although they say they were first Fletcher's is actually the first corn dog in the country. It was very crowded and we enjoyed the old regalia in the...More

We went here for the famous & original cozy dogs. They were fine and about what you'd expect. We also had the fries w/cheese sauce (kind of like welsh rarebit) -- they were very good. The staff was very friendly and Route 66 memorabilia is...More

If you go to cozy dog drive in, go for the atmosphere. The corn dog which is called the cozy dog was good, but not amazing. I wasn't a fan of the fries. The dining area was fun and unique with tons of historical Route...More

Sonic Drive In has corn dogs and they are cheap. There are 3 locations in town that I know of. They have a website and an app you can download. They serve you at your car window like the old car hop days from the 50's. They... More
